Are you sure it's 1975?

Doesn't look like it to me, more like mid 74.

I think that they could be from the summer of 1972 - perhaps late June, early july, before he lost some weight before the vegas season in August. Other pics from this time show him carrying some extra weight. He wore that suit / necklace a lot in 72, his hair was a similar length, and it seems to make sense

It might help a little if you guys would take a closer look at the Candid Central. Hint, hint...

It must be after July 6. as he met Linda for the first time on that date. Somewhere in the back of my mind I sense that I've heard the date, but the archives just won't open :) Sometime during late summer of 72 does seem to be a good guess though. Certainly not 75.

yes Elvis look really in love with Linda it is probaly 1972
But i found it strange, a saw footage of Elvis in august when he recieved a gold album for MSG and he was very good looking then

In these pictures Elvis look a little bit heavy

I believe the pictures where made at a Gospel Convention

A really hope to see more pictures

ITS 1975

J - thanks. I looked in Candid Central, as I was sure i'd seen these pics there, but for some reason, couldn't find them.

Karlos - I'm fairly sure it's 72, and there's no need to shout! Elvis is wearing what appears to my eyes to be the red belt from TTWII, along with the red shirt from EOT. Although the pic isn't that flattering, he's not 1975 big.

I agree Elvis looked much slimmer by the time Aug came around, but then again, he was known to crash diet.He was certainly carrying a few extra pounds through the summer.

It has to be late July, early August, because didn't Linda go away on business, directly after meeting Presley!? Hope this helps :lol:!

These are from 1972, not sure of the exact date

He looked exactly like he does in this pic in Nov 72. Check pics on candid central of Elvis arriving in Hawaii.
Although, in defense of the 1975 argument, his eyes look 75.
Linda definitely looks 1972. Likes she's not used to the "glam" of dating Elvis.


Anybody know where the fest was held?

Beautiful pictures.

In the new book "Writing For the King" one of the writers, the one who wrote "He Touched Me" I think, (don't have the book here) said that Elvis visited a Gospel convention in Memphis, and got up on stage, walked around and waved to the audience. I know that Elvis came as a guest to several such conventions, but the "up on stage, waving to the audience" does fit the top photo." I believe this occacion was sometime in 72, but not sure of the date.

The man who wrote "He Touched Me" would be none other than Bill Gaither...one of the greatest Gospel songwriters of our time.

Gospel convention in 1973, exact date is not familiar.

My guess as to when the photos were taken is September-October ´72, well any time really between Vegas and the November tour.

Late July/early August doesn't really seem possible, wouldn't EP be in Vegas then - opening show was August 4, IIRC. And he was still a bit heavy on the Nov. tour, before he started losing weight for Aloha...

Sept/Oct 72, does seem like it would be the right time line, given the reasons you mentioned above.
