previously unseen? not really ...
i posted about this pic on this very board on another ali-thread about three or four years ago (sounds bragging, i know, but it´s true). but i agree, that this pic is rare and i´ve never seen it in high quality/definition.
crazy, that it seems to be on display in the muhammad-ali-center in lousville, but all the same it seems to be impossible to spot it on the internet.
the video is very interesting all the same, thank you!
i´m an ali-fan since my days of childhood, so i suppose, we have lots in common ( ... well, at least two things).
do you believe, ali has ever seen one of elvis´ concerts in the 70s?/have you ever heard which one?
i have not.
and (like the doc already mentioned) it´s hard to imagine for me, if that happened, that it was never even mentioned, either by press- or fan-reports (except sonny west in "still takin´ care of business, according to guitarking).

of course i do not. my remark was meant as "wishful thinking".elvisalisellers wrote:Do you know for certain if a soundboard exists from this show ?
i have my doubts, that elvis would have. in my view, it was all routine for him from then on (especially in vegas). i remember being kind of "dissapointed", when i (had) first listened to the ´76 show on "goodbye, memphis" (re-released as "the final homecoming"). i would have thought, he could have done something special for his hometown-folks, changing his set-list just for the ocasion. instead, he reeled off the same repertoire like the night before and the next one. i do realize, this was ´76 and not 1973.elvisalisellers wrote: It would be a very unique show to own that's for sure, and moreover, you would imagine Elvis raised his game accordingly being in the presence of Muhammad Ali.

Based on what evidence? Without evidence, there can be no certainty.

Ali sounds pretty darn busy to be attending a dinner or midnight show on February 1, 1973.
