Wouldn't it of been awesome if Elvis had of sang these songs in Concert,during the 70's.



I Love You Because
Good Rockin' Tonight
Blue Moon Of Kentucky
Money Honey
That's When Your Heartaches Begin
My Happiness
One Sided Love Affair


If anyone can think of mare songs to add,feel free to do so.I think it's a shame that he didn't record these songs in later years.

Yes, a great list of woulda-coulda-shoulda.

Just like Elvis sometimes alternated T.A.R.Mama as an opener, he should have sang G.R.T.

A live teaser that really perterbs me in on the 70s box when he attempts "I Was The One" - the band falls in so smooth and perfect on the chords but Elvis aborts it with a laugh about not remembering the words. Damn shame.
That song - the flipside of "Heartbreak Hotel" - has such a 50s nostalgia to it. It's an original Elvis cut.
I Got A Woman is not! It's Ray Charles! Why keep doing that Charles tune every night after night?????

Do more classic Presley tunes!

Oh well, too late now.

What about these:

A Fool Such As I
Mean Woman Blues
Devil In Disguise
Fame & Fortune
Viva Las Vegas
After Loving You
Power Of My Love
Long Black Limo
It's Only Love
We Can Make The Morning
Always On My Mind
For The Heart
Way Down


Comments: I always thought that "A Fool Such As I" had such a nice rythem to it that it should have been a part of the live shows in the 70's.
Also, I think "Viva Las Vegas" could have been a good song to alternate with Mystery Train Tigerman. And, I always thought "Way Down" would have been a good #2 song in the lineup due to it's high energy and rhythem.

There's a JD Sumner & The Stamps show where they do "Way Down", and you're right: it really sounded awesome live! :D

What a shame it was that Elvis didn't put more time into the development of his stage show - post 1970.
There were so many of those great songs from the 50's and 60's.
Many of those songs could have produced with new arrangements to accomodate his "Vegas" program.
- much the same as his performance of A Big Hunk O' Love in 72/73.
That's about the only 50's number Elvis did in the 70's that I really enjoyed - especially from the Satellite program.
I guess "Trying To Get To You" (74) and "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" (71/72/74) were pretty decent as well.
None of these compare to the originals but the new arrangements are a great listen.

:? silly as it might sound Elvis could have easily passed off material like 'just tell her jim said hello' or 'puppet on a string' as 'live' - if he'd wanted to! certainly these songs were audience requests at times!
