Elvis in full dress uniform, you gotta love him!
With Denver police captain Jerry Kennedy and the other officer's name eludes me at the moment.

Cheers

Yes it almost doesn't look like him at all.

He wasn't in the best of health there...

At one time he told one of his police buddies that he really would like to be a cop, however upon hearing how much a cop made, he said that wouldn't even pay for his phone bills :)

Is this from 1976? Seems more like 1973 or 1974 to me. Just curious. But if it *is* from 1976, I think Elvis looks very good. Not only was he suffering health problems, but he was 41 years of age. You can't directly compare this to 1968-1970. Remove the drugs for a second: Elvis had also AGED ..... as we all do. Compare photos of Elvis in 1968 to photos of him in 1960. He matured quite a bit. The same span of time exists here. Sometimes, we are too hard on this man.

On the picture where he looks at the lady´s necklace, it almost seems like he just got the "Change of habit" hair cut once again!

During this period, there was a drastic weight loss.
Yet, he didn't look too healthy.

There were some positive developments during the last quarter of '76.
It's a shame '77 was 100% downhill again...

Simon ..if You are interested in Elvis and His Police Buddies, I can highly recommend a Book called Elvis - in the beat of the night. I wrote a few words about it in the Review Section.

I dare say that had he tanned during this period, he would have looked real good. He lost quite of bit of weight since the Pontiac concert, and was in Colorado, ( I believe Vail and Denver ) during January, which was not the place to be to get a tan, that's for sure.

The big things working against him there are pale skin and strange eyes -- the former resulting from a lack of tan and the latter from a stupid eye-op. Really, how many people look that good at 41?

Wasn't that done before the July'75 tour?
Yet his eyes looked "ok" during those concerts..

His eyes looked OK at first (but no longer as sultry or distinctive) ....... but they seemed to worsen in time. Sometimes, his face had a "hollowed out" look, and his eyes just seemed very average.

Just compare these "before" and "after" images on TCB-World:

He looks like a different person. And notice what looks like late scarring in the second photo.

In February 1976? You're thinking of October-December 1976.

I think he looks incredibly happy in the photos with the Denver officers. He was certainly having more fun then going downstairs to cut some music with the TCB band.

Thank you very much Little Darlin. I did see it, and I also read a review in the excellent The Man & His Music magazine. I asked my dealer about it, they hope to have a copy for me soon.

Thank you again.
