This photo was in Tunzi´s book Photographs & memories, but only in black and white. I don´t remember seeing this in colour before.

Nor have I -- thanks for posting it.

Tunzi credits this to Palm Springs in January 1972, but some claim they're from December 1971 -- or from January 1972 in Las Vegas.

Your thoughts?

It´s not hard to see that our man went through some hard times 1971/1972. He´s pale and looks tired.

Like Jim Dandy already mentioned, this is from Las Vegas. The same curtains can be seen for example in photos taken on Lisa Marie´s birthday in February ´73.

Check out the deep shag carpet too. His feet look like they were sinking in that stuff.

Elvis really looks like a superhero in that last pic ...

You can tell by his pose and confidence that Elvis himselvis must have felt the same way too :!: :wink:
