' Never looked for trouble, but I've never ran' > Elvis sings on TROUBLE from the fantastic June 29, 1968, second stand-up show. Watched it through again and what fantastic entertainment!
'Heartbreak Hotel' - 'All Shook Up' - 'Jailhouse Rock' and a particular favourite version of 'Don't Be Cruel' (moby dick!) are just some of the fabulous selections. And additionally, the closing BLACK LEATHER version of - 'If I Can Dream' - Wow!
One of his finest moments along with the first legendary stand-up segment that includes the bluesy Impromptu, ' Baby What You want Me To Do' jam - awesome!
Question: Which is the better of the two shows?
Answer: Both brilliant > you can't compare gold with gold!

Baby What You Want Me To Do
The way his hand trembles as he reaches for the mike just before Hearbreak Hotel.
The overhead shots showing Elvis prancing like a caged animal, seemingly ready to attack the audience.
Love Me Tender from both shows
The way he plays to the two brunette women in the pink outfits in the first row, dropping to his knees during Hound Dog to their great amusement.
"This leather suit's hot I'm telling ya."
The playful jokes and expressions: "my boy my boy, McArthur Park, "Moby Dick!"
Tony Tedesco's guitar work throughout.
