I would say the memphis show from June 10 1975, with stunning versions of Fairytale and How Great Thou art

Most of the June shows are very enjoyable with Elvis in good spirits and good voice.

I still like the composite show issued on the silver box set. Something of a minor classic and it makes you wish ALL the 11975-77 band intro's were that short (heavily edited).

As mentioned, the Memphis show was very good.

One of my favorites is also the Mobile, Alabama evening show from June 2,1975.

I agree rob, that would be a good release for a FTD release eventually since the shreveport show wasnt to long ago released.. but i would welcome it after a few other releases

I'd also say Memphis, June 10 '75 performance wise.

A tour that is quite overrated, though, on this forum.

If I was going to play a soundboard from one of the '75 tours, though, I'd go for the May 6 / 7 recording issued on Dixieland Rocks, thanks to its excellent sound quality and atmosphere.
