Hello Y'ALL!
I got this pic of our man ELVIS, "1969 MGM STUDIO". (if I'm correct)
The one I have is cut and the other one is colored by someone. (nice job)
Could anyone help me out with the original b/w of this photography.
Other extra info would also be appreciated.
This is one of my absolute favorites.

It's June 1968 - doing the pre-recorded stuff for the TV Special at Western Recorders.

Vincent -- this Dec '06 topic may interest you -> Picture Question...

Here's what I wrote there, it applies to your image as well:

It was taken on Sunday, June 23, 1968, at Western Recorders, Studio 1, in Los Angeles, CA, just before taping that amazing studio version of "If I Can Dream."

This shot has only been published in BxW, although the master negative is likely color. The posted image is tinted, but not too badly.

A lot of wonderful recordings were made at 6000 Sunset Boulevard, including perhaps the greatest album of all time, Pet Sounds. Work is still done there today, as Cello Studios.

Also, Vincent, your photo first saw the light of day on the cover of "Elvis Sessions" (JAT, 1993).
