Memphis 76 - Jackson 76

Fri Jan 30, 2009 10:57 pm

I have a dilemma.

First of all, is there someone with photos from Jackson, MS 1976??


I thought I had the following from Jackson, MS but after looking at them I realized that they were from Memphis 76.

This one I thought it was from also Jackson, MS since Elvis didnt have rings. Even thou the wall onthe background looks like the one from Memphis.

So my questions are

1.) Doyou have pics from Jackson 76 ?
2.) Did Elvis take his ring out during Memphis 76 concert?

I just took a look at Tunzi's Highway 51 and there is a point where he has no rings (when he's playing the guitar) but most of the time he has something or other in one of his hands; they're never that bare.

So I would say that your two pics are not from Memphis; he also seems more bloated in yours than in the ones from the Tunzi book.

I think that's the first show that I've ever noticed him wearing no rings with the exception of Cincy and Indy '77.

In my never ending quest to date photos correctly etc., I came across this front page photo from Jackson Clarion-Ledger Sept. 6th 1976...as it's from microfilm, the quality is terrible. However, it does show that Elvis wore the blue bicentennial suit (with white sleeves; the best proof is the belt in the pic), so the pictures Francesc showed earlier are not from Jackson after all...so I guess they ARE from Memphis.
Uh oh... :shock: and now I don't have ANY pictures from Jackson except this one :smt087

Thanks Scott, you are really helping a lot with these findings. The positive thing is that now we have more photos from Memphis :oops:

I may have found a picture from Jackson, but am not 100% certain.
Here's my reasoning: there's apparently no TCB ring on his right hand -> concert is post August 29th; the band is in white, leaving the choices of Tuscaloosa, Macon, Jackson, & Pine Bluff; in Macon & Pine Bluff the background does not match; and in Tuscaloosa he did not do any "guitar" songs...which leaves only Jackson...but I may be wrong still...what do you think?

In Macon he had the TCB ring in his left hand. Also how do we know the band wore white?

The Macon background looks different to me, especially when looking at the "guitar session pics" also his hair looks different.

We don't know what the band wore, but it could have been white... :P
It's just that I can't fit this shot anywhere else...but as I said, I am probably wrong about this...

I really hate that Charlie holding the mic routine.

Something I'd never seen before: Elvis receiving Mississippi Entertainment HOF plaque, apparently in Jackson on Sept 5th 1976...sorry about the bad quality.

Thanks for the laugh
Have you been watching naughty videos with `Big' John?

Scott, that's new to me too - thanks. That's a rare `official' photo from the era, even if he doesn't look like Mr Happy

Brings to mind the comment Elvis directed at the ushers. "What are you, pallbearers?"

Your article is from the Charleston New Courier Sept 10, 1976.

Here he is with Gov. Cliff Finch from the BIloxi Sun.
