1969 audience recordings

I am trying to gather reliable infos about those tapes since I am sure not all that we have is 100% correctly dated. I am talking about:

Aug 5 MS
Aug 6 DS
Aug 12 DS
Aug 13 DS
Aug 14 DS
Aug 16 MS
Aug 18 DS

Perhaps someone was there, someone out there taped the show, someone remembers special incidents
which identify a show, celebrities or whatever. Any answer which brings is further is appreciated.

I hope you find recordings of the 1969 shows your looking for - it really was a special time for Elvis and his fans . I've long wondered if any other unusual songs were sung at these shows, especially during the earliest concerts from the first week or so. If you look at the list of songs rehearsed , there are a a lot of interesting possibilities and I wonder if Elvis tried out any of those songs as "one - off" performance during the first few shows.
Incidentally , I hope that some day Sony will release a box set of all of the shows that were recorded during Aug 1969, including any soundboards they might have and any rehearsals they may be able to acquire .
