and I have read in the pages of an ELVIS MONTHLY many years ago that EP wore his BURNING LOVE and WHITE PINWHEEL suits at this engagement?? He wore the Burning Love in El Paso as late a the previous November,and in this seaon he would've been slim enough to fit into the White Pinwheel,can anyone shed any light on this?

You may want to check out the "The Kings Court" forum as this one has a hugh list of jumpsuits worn by Elvis and their respective use in a certain engagement or tour. Furthermore I'd suggest you visit the site of Silvester Eter called "Silvesters-Elvis-Page.at". This one is also full of details on jumpsuits and gives information on when they were worn. Great site, be sure to check it out!
