Nice pic doesn't cover it, these are fantastic candids! All I can say is, wow!Given his type of shades, length of hair and outfit I'd place the photos to be from between September-November 1970.

Cheers

I'm pretty sure those are backstage at a gospel convention at Memphis' Ellis Auditorium in early December 1970.

Those are members of the Blackwood Brothers Quartet, a group he had adored since his teen years.

This image is more well-known from that evening ->

(L-R) James Blackwood, Hovie Lister (Statesmen Quartet), Elvis, J.D. Sumner

All four of these wonderful singers are gone now.

It's quite possible that such visits made Elvis' selection of J.D. and the Stamps to replace the Imperials Quartet a year later were in part based on these pleasant outings.

Dr John I am sure you are right as to where they where taken, but I think Day By Day has the event taking place in October.

Nice work Guy's It's really hard dating photo's but I'm giving it a good go. Thanks to Members past and present for helping with dates etc. I am able to put my undated photo's into Folders simply by checking with the photo's posted here and in Candid Central.
