The pattern of the owl suit was cascading stars, like exploding fireworks (the suit's other name is the royal blue fireworks suit).

I ask this question because I have never before seen him in that lavender suit. So is this the lost lavender suit or a image of Greensboro?

Nope...completely different suit. The pic you posted is the red "Burning Love" suit...the light just seems to be hitting it at a weird angle to make it look a different color.

That would have been an awesome color for a suite.

I agree with Tony. I would say it is the Red "Burning Love" Jumpsuite look close at the desgins and then look at this picture

This picture is colorized.. :oops:
Also there's no different blue or purple owl suit, it's the same suit:
The change of colour happened after a wrong cleaning procedure.. :shock:

This is definitely the Red Matador (Burning Love) suit. Some of our Polaroid pictures from the Little Rock concert show this strange hue too.... I guess some stage lights clashed with the color at times.....

You can see one Polaroid shot at the link below.... and the color is lighter than what is usually seen in photographs. They also made the cape lining appear a more pinkish tone than white.

The real mystery of this picture is who Elvis is flipping the bird to? :)
