Maybe, it was a co production, between Richard & Vic...?
When I met up again, with Vic, in the early 80s, his spare bedroom,
housed several boxes with the GS album...
I heard Richard took his own life. Either in jail, or shortly after he
got out ... Any truth in that story?
Richard Minor, was a very nice guy. Dammit! Most of the Boot Yanks
were good dudes. They knew the risk, but their punishment was
way over the top!
Pat, thanks for your list! It helps, dating the US boots.

Intermission is over.
Lights dimm... 2001 sets in!
People in the Hilton Showroom whisper nervously...
The band Rocks!
My heart beats like a kettledrum!
The curtain goes up slowely. Our eyes go from the left
to the right... Tadada Tada Daaa!
The band plays at fever pitch! Loud, really loud!
Im shaking. Im so nervous, dont know where to
look anymore!... My lady smiles at me. She understands.
Out of the right corner, from behind the curtain, He enters
the stage! Godallmighty! HE IS FOR REAL!
My head explodes!
This is not a film, Im watching! Hes there, in front of us!
He slowely walks towards the centre, of the stage. Smiling,
his thumbs, resting in the chains of his belt. He looks a
million bucks! Pompadour, and all.
Hes so incredibly good looking. And sooo coool!
Absorbing all these emotions, overpower me!
I nearly slide off my chair!
Im knocked out. And he hasnt opened his mouth, yet!...

It reminded me a bit of the footage live from '75 I posted here the other day, where he comes out on the stage, hooks his hands in and just "is" Elvis Presley, without singing a word:

I've heard people put down his "Elvis On Tour" suits from '72 but to me, it was iconic and he pulled it off. No one else could.
And it was the '70s, too! Take a look at Alice Cooper, Elton John, David Bowie and others at that time and get back to me about "idiotic" suits! No one holds them up to such ridicule. It's show business! Today, artists look like they just finished a game of hoops in their backyard or just rolled off their couch. People pay for a show. Costumes are okay!
I think he looks rather regal here, but I've never liked the collar thing and as someone on that site mentioned, it's the famed "puffy shirt" of "Seinfeld" fame.
Back to bootlegs!
