Question about EIC

Sat Mar 09, 2013 7:07 am

I've reading you guys for a while and I've learnt that some releases cannot be mentioned on this board.
The quality on this video is the best I've seen, does it look to you as taken from one of those releases that cannot be mentioned?
Thanks

Actually it is not that bad of performance if you don't watch.

Yup, seems like it's from "The Final Curtain".

That footage is totally Elvis In Concert and not CBS tapes. That's why the quality is so good. Thanks for starting a worthless, valueless thread.

I always liked this version of Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel. The problem with Elvis was at his worst - he still could sing. He just never would have been famous if he had started out like that.

Thanks for the clip Ipa.
To me it seems like it contains some alternate camera angles with wide views on the audience and venue.

I'm not aware of any such thing. Which releases would those be?

No, the problem with any singer or musician at their worst is that their music has little value.

That June 1977 clip is a textbook example: two classic, #1 hits, halfheartedly sung in a 120-second medley. Yet the music matters not; all the fans want are some scarves. What a waste.

We have to deal wit that fact. Can't change history.
Still good to have footage for the sake of collecting.

True. I fully embrace that philosophy.

Let's begin by collecting all the great performances on video and film from 1955-1975 first.

When somebody finds a TV video of Elvis singing from 1975, I will stop loving Elvis In Concert 1977.

He might sound like 90 in Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel - but it still sounds good.

And it still isn't as painful as College Park.

If this is "good", what is bad?

what's the difference? I thought EIC was taped by CBS.

Oh, you're perfectly welcome. I'm sorry I can't compete with your million dollar threads.

Did Elvis ever give a bad performance? Please.
He was on fire that night in Omaha.

How Great Thou Art from September 28, 1974 - especially when his voice goes out

I don't know about him, but *I* believe there is fan culpability. This has happened in the case of other stars who crashed and burned, too. They REFUSE to see it, and the star is under the impression that he is pleasing them. And he is, sadly.

Indeed! Unbelievable.

What dr. crap don't seem to understand, the people/audience didn't have the knowledge/facts that are known now (present day) about EP's situation as a whole, in 1977.

You can put the man down over and over again, about EIC. It will never change history.
