Dig deep into 70`s Elvis: the concerts, jumpsuits and all available live tapes.

number of concerts with no available recording

Sun Mar 01, 2015 9:27 pm

Is there any information about the approximate number of Elvis concerts of which there is no recording available?
So no multitrack, soundboard, soundbooth or audience recording whatsoever.
I know Elvis gave some 1100 concerts.
And it would be nice to know the number of soundboardrecordings in total.

I really appreciate any help.

In total Elvis gave 1126 concerts from July 31 1969 - June 26, 1977
At the moment we have audio to 684 shows. This means 442 shows are
missing. Every now and then FTD releases new shows. Many unreleased
shows are in private hands.

1977 seems to be the most complete. :shock:
Overall we have around 62% of all his shows recorded in some type of format which is actually pretty good.

Who Knows What Goodies Are Just Sitting Somewhere In Those Unreleased Shows! ::rocks

my research into one liners showed that Elvis sang about 300 one liners and small excerpts of songs that were unusual for that time period (out of the about 600 shows that have surfaced).
That is about 1 in ever 2 shows.

Most excerpts were done in the time frame 1970 - 1972.
And guess where we are mising most shows: 1970-1971.
So I am willing to bet that there are many more songs were attempted on stage: one liners, short excerpts etc.

Yes, BUT, will they release them while many of us are still here? Once the "original" fans and those who were here when Elvis was alive are gone, the fan base for purchasing such products will be gone. I Don't understand the hesitation with releases they are holding on to. Right now they have a base who will purchase many of them and some of us who will purchase them all. The music sitting in their hands unreleased generates no revenue for them. And as I stated earlier, the fan base for such releases is not getting any younger. Perplexing and bordering on frustrating.

In the 70's there were a handful concerts from the 50's available but the sound was very poor. The screaming girls could be heard good but you nearly can hear what Elvis was singing. I had a few but I errased the cassette tapes I traded. In those days there were no programs to improve the sound.
I don't think they excist forty years later on.

Thanks.

You make it sound you had lots of them, giving the impression "what's he talking about"...

On those tapes were a few tracks like Hound dog - Heartbreak hotel (dated 11 oct. 1956) - Love me tender etc; for others exact date unknown. Those tapes were home made and filled up with songs from the Dorsey shows / Ed Sullivan shows in the wrong order to give you the impression it was recorded in concert. The versions with Hound dog - Heartbreak hotel - Love me tender were unique and were recorded in concerts.
I had two tapes at the time but I know there were more tapes circulating produced in the same way. I have not traded more tapes because it was very poor.
