What Year Of Live Show Do You Wish Was Filmed Professionally

If You could have a show professionally filmed from any of the years of Elvis's Career that are not documented with film, What would you want to see? I am counting TV as being professionally filmed.

Elvis "In Person at the International", his first live version Of Suspicious minds. On Video..that would be fantastic.

Has to be '69
Has a nice ring to it. :wink:

Strange the year is not in your list. I'd like to see concerts he gave in 1956. One of my favorite periods, that's for sure. 8)

Essentially would be 1956 or 1961, I'd prefer the Pearl Harbor show ... in color, like the Shea stadion concert of the beatles - that would be something !

I always thought the June ' 75 tour would of been an idealistic time for some professional filming to be carried out at some of the dates . Elvis had trimmed down heaps since the Vegas stint in March and the April tour . IMO , it was the last time he looked half decent in his appearance .
Imagine footage of Elvis walking out on stage in Hunstville , Al ( 31 / 05 / 75 ) at the afternoon show ! It would of made a great documentary opener ! Man , he looked good during that time !
IMO , I still think the 10 / 06 / 75 gig he done in Memphis was his best !
' Fairytale ' from that gig was awesome !
If you havn ' t guess by now , the Indian Feather jumpsuit is my all time fave and I thank god to this day that it was on display at Graceland in August ' 97 !
:lol:
Cheers

I've gotta go with '69. The Jan./Feb. '70 shows were on the short side, 50 minutes on average, whereas the '69 shows were anywhere from 60 to 70 minutes. Plus it would be refreshing to see Elvis in a costume other than the jumpsuits. Plus he played some guitar during these shows. Lastly, the passion and intensity post 68 comeback was never higher than in '69!
