Red Skelton in Hilton Audience, August 1972 - Date?

Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:33 am

I was watching the following clip on YouTube today of Elvis at the Hilton in 1972. What's interesting is at the end of the show, in the midst of signing Can't Help Falling In Love, Elvis announces the presence of Red Skelton and say he loves him very much. It is at 12:40 in the clip below.

Anyone know the date of the show from which this audio was taken?

It's appears to be one of the soundboards we have from mid-August 1972:

8-11-1972 DS
8-11-1972 MS
8-12-1972 DS
8-12-1972 MS


Anyone care to check which?

Comedian Red Skelton is also introduced at the 1-26-1972 OS. He'd just closed his run there, making an announcement from the stage that he was retiring from show business. It lasted about 3 months, as he returned to the Hilton in April.

Sounds as though it's from the January 26, 1972 opening show when Elvis introduces both Sammy Davis Jr and Red Skeleton. Although, YLTLF wasn't recorded during that show.

Elvis didn't sing "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" at this show.

Beat me to it... but where PSA ends and YLTLF begins has been edited...

Can't Help Falling in Love is definitely from January 26, 1972... taken from Cisco's website... YLTLF must be taken from an August show.

So the YouTube audio is a variety of sources then? Nice extra work.

It appears so because See See Rider is also from a show other than the January opening.
