Polk Salad Andy I seriously believe that Elvis could have been filmed on Aug 10th 70 Before show time in the afternoon at Vegas - Many years ago as a devoted Elvis fan I put this question to some source who told me that this may have been filmed and is gathering dust at some Mgm vaults - .

I Believe he wore a blue shirt similar to red one he wore on August 7th at Hotel rehearsals when he sang songs such as Mary In The Morning , Polk Salad Annie , Oh Happy Day and such -
On The 10th August he sang songs such as -



1. Sweet Caroline -
2. Some thing
3. Patch It Up
4. Bridge Over Troubled Water
5. Polk Salad Annie (Polk A Little Soc Salad )
Please see and listen To Hang Loose Cd for list - that was released many years ago

HANG LOOSE (Bilko CD 1597) (Released 1991)

[b]Please see pics below to see what he may have looked like on this date -
Please give mo info if any one can verify this - Ty in advance - I sure would love to see light on this footage some time - like most fans would - keepn my fingers crossed for release of footage

this is part of rehearsal on that day [/b] ::rocks

Here is the page URL:

Since there are no footnotes on the page we cannot be sure of the source. But it is possible the rehearsal was captured in part by the MGM cameras. It is also possible Elvis wanted to have an empty showroom for his final run-through before the opening night performance.

I find it hard to believe the rehearsal we do have is in very poor audio

but the rehearsals we don't have footage of they record a multi track feed strange

why didn't they capture good audio for the filmed stuff ?

It was in the showroom they could of mixed it very well :)
