Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

Is this really the opening for an Elvis-show?

Sure looks like TTWII-Footage!

TTWII outtakes or not, they opened the show for Elvis, so your question is a bit "odd" either it is the opening for TTWII or for another show....

Or am i wrong :oops:

Is this the TCB band playing along them? Or did they have their own musicians?

Can't really tell what muscians are playing but you can see Joe Guercio conducting the orchestra in the background.

I didn't see Joe Mocheo in this clip. He may have playing piano on this song as he usually did play on A Thing Called Love.

What a great clip - thanks for sharing.

You are indeed correct -- are the Imperials lucky TTWII outtakes surfaced or what?

Elvis took the Imperials arrangement of this sweet Jerry Reed tune lock, stock and barrel when he cut his master in May 1971.

I did not know this footage existed.
