No. He was one of Elvis' concert engineers from 1971-1977.

The book will reveal which Elvis tours Bruce worked on, as well as all of the other artists he worked for between AND during Elvis tours. He was an extremely busy young man in the 1970s, flying around the world for different acts, as Clair Bros Audio grew in to Clair Bros Global. He was not exclusive to Elvis.

It's odd, but when I think of any connection of Elvis to the Jackson's, I prefer it in setting of the 1970s. When Lisa and Michael married in the 1990's, I felt the same funk being an Elvis fan as I did when the Goldman book came out. Terrible amount of weird attention only aleviated for me by the release of "The Complete 70s Masters" boxset a year or so later. Nice nugget uncovered Doc!

JosephC


The 1990s marriage seemed like two damaged souls trying to connect in a crazy world, but it did prove once and for all that Elvis was not in hiding somewhere. Certainly he would have made comment about the union.

It's great to hear Elvis' generous Jackson Five intro on the new FTD release Tahoe '74 2-CD - both shows solid and professional both shows are an interesting listen. Tahoe was teaming with various acts and solo performers and we also have a snippet of Elvis' Billy Eckstine intro and one liner of his 'I Apoligize' hit, again a captivating listen (High Sierra FTD). I wonder, can the doc trace Mr Eckstine's steps in Tahoe around this timeframe, and did they ever meet ?

Billy Eckstine was playing at Harrah's Tahoe in May 1974.

It is unknown if the singers met, but Elvis was definitely a big fan of Billy.

Here's a contemporaneous review of the May 1974 Tahoe gig, and how the year before was far more awful than some here will ever admit:


center stage
By FOSTER CHURCH

So how is Elvis this time? After last year at the Sahara Tahoe when the King was sick and looked barely able to hoist his guitar one wondered if he wasn't over the hill. Well, he's 100 per cent improved, looking good (although still a few pounds overweight) and apparently in good spirits and humor. As if to prove his good mood, he'll give an extra third show for his last night at 3 a.m. (that's the morning of May 27).

Elvis at 39 doesn't take himself very seriously, mocking his own sexy image and kidding the gaggles of females who still stream to the stage, hoping to snatch a scarf or a kiss. They say Elvis gives out some two dozen scarfs at every show. Some are on his neck for only a second before devout Elvis worshippers pull them away.

As if an Elvis visitation wasn't enough, the Sahara Tahoe also had to cope with a rumor opening night. It is said that a San Francisco radio station got the "scoop" that Elvis had been taken ill and that (you guessed it) Prank Sinatra would sub for him.

Note also how the journalist notes that Elvis is doing "an extra third show for his last night." He understands the 3am show is part of the same business day as the first two given on May 26. This is how such extra performances were categorized.

Wider, sure. Deeper, not really.

Since FTD just issued some May 1974 Tahoe shows, an official release of the closing gig may be a while. The highlight, of course, is Elvis acknowledging singer Billy Eckstine in the audience as an influence. How cool. Billy must have finished his last set at Harrah's that Sunday night and then hustled over to the Sahara to catch Elvis in this late-addition, 3am show.

It is perfectly obvious that a 3am show on the 27th is part of the same nights work that began with the shows on the 26th, but that the correct date for the 3am show should be the 27th.

The 3am show took place on the 27th (not the 26th), and was also previously released on volume 2 of the excellent 'Profile' boxes. The last 4 tracks were taken from a different show.

Following your comment, I gave some of the tracks from the 3am show a listen and it seems it's actually a pretty good show. :smt023

Wasn't going to bother with the new FTD shows, if you had to rate the available soundboards for the season, where would you place the new shows in terms of entertainment?

The 3.00 am show - 'Last Tango In Tahoe' is a favourite of mine ...the new release 'Tahoe '74' doesn't offer any real surprises but both shows are solid. I've been trying to pick my favourite of the two but both are equally entertaining . The Jackson Five intro is sincere and nice to hear, plus 'Help Me Make It Through The Night' --and Lisa Marie's introduction are nice. I like 'See See Rider' & 'I Got A Woman', 'Love Me' & 'Fever' from this show too...there not dynamic, but nice to hear and solid!

CD-1 - Of course a beautiful 'I'll Remember You' - 'Heartbreak Hotel' are of note - Elvis introduces himself as Pat Boone, and says he's gonna sing some Pat Boone songs ...but the sound is very good with the orchestra very punchy...that's one reason I'd like the 3.00am show released because FTDs version would be an improvement on what we have, by quite a stretch ...obviously a future release; one that could be a good addition to a FTD Tahoe book,they haven't done one! So both shows on the new FTD release offer quite an entertaining experience ...

Excellent post Doc. I've just finished listening to both shows, and in the introduction of the Jackson 5, Elvis seemed genuine in his praise of the group and happy they were at his show. It was nice to see him encourage his fans to see them the next night if they could.

Re: When Michael Met Elvis ... and Lisa --> Dates Confirmed!

Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:51 pm

The introduction was amazing to hear.

I wonder why Michael never publicly spoke of being at this show? Of the very few references to Elvis he ever made, he never spoke about seeing the King in concert or what he thought of the show.

As a side note, if you listen very carefully to the introduction @ 2:20, a man in the audience seems to shout out "Hey Michael, I love your hair man!")

It would be interesting to know which jumpsuit Elvis was wearing at the May 26 Dinner Show when he introduces the Jackson 5.

If anyone has the Sue McCasland book "World's Best Kept Secret" does it shed any light on which suit was worn?

I understand that the Blue Rainbow was worn May 17.
Peacock was worn May 25 MS.

I suppose without a newspaper review of this particular show where they might have mentioned the design of Elvis' jumpsuit, it's impossible to be sure.

I've only ever seen one Tahoe photo in the Inca suit, but as to which show its from, I've no idea. EP is wearing the 1973 Arabian belt as the purpose made belts for the new suits weren't ready.
