Post here your Elvis' pictures

Courtesy Of Felton Jarvis ?

Thu May 11, 2006 6:53 pm

According to the seller these photos are from the estate of Felton Jarvis. No word on if he took these himself. Any guesses?

What's the name of the jumpsuit? I am no expert. I looked for blue something, but to no avail. So we also need a date and loction.

Chuck Berry & Mama Lion. James Gang. Grateful Dead. Interesting.

Also note the banner "His New MGM Movie [Elvis On] Tour".
Nice to get a glimpse of the surroundings, but those brown / orange drapes [to cover up concrete?] are just hideous.

Great shots! November 14th 1972, Long Beach California.

I see what you mean about the decor. It looks like our local village hall. :shock:

D--- Delboy, you beat me with the info on the whereabouts.
But at least I can tell that the suit is referred to as the Tiffany suit

Thanks for your kind assistance.

Who named the jumpsuit? Audrey Hepburn?

So no word on if these pictures were taken by Felton? Maybe he had a friend in the audience who took them? Or where else would he have got them? What the heck, maybe the seller is trying to make it more interesting by passing it off as the producer's.

Why would Felton position himself in front of the stage armed with a camera?
He was located at the mixing desk, with the other sound guys.

If Elvis spotted Felton down there.. he probably would have taken his kidney away from him! :smt100

The jumpsuit name "Tiffany" was actually a nickname from Elvis himself. When he tried on the suit he saw the stones and joked: "Looks like it was made at Tiffany's!".
The original designer's name is "Aztec Star". There is an original belt but it seems Elvis never used it, at least not during 1972.

You are so right Paul. :D

I have those very ones (along with a few different angled shots) from that show, which I purchased from Rosemarie Leach a few years ago.

Thank you for the info.
So how did they end up with Felton?
Or is the eBay seller lying?

You're probably right.
