Nice footage - shame its the wrong aspect ratio, but even so. Mindyou, it also goes to show that something drastic happened between late june and august in 1974.

This is probably the best quality of 8mm footage that has been released.

Absolutely great! Thank you very much for posting that. Maybe the best nonprofesssional filming of Elvis. The Kansas City DVD includes the complete filmed concert from 29-th June 1974?

This is great footage of Elvis.
This footage was filmed by the late Rex Martin when he toured the states in "74".
It was stolen from him during the late "70s"!!!!
