That would make sense, as there is a same kind of red exit light to be seen in the background on the June 4th photos.

So this would solve a "long standing" problem. Thanks for your input!

I also think that the black Phoenix pics with band in white are from Dallas June 6th and in red from Jackson June 9th.

Err...haven't you been paying attention...? :D
I guess we just determined that they have to be from Houston, June 5th 1975. Chris Brown has it wrong in his book.

I got some photos from a lady in Houston...she has dated the Indian photos for June 4th and the White Phoenix photos for June 5th...she apparently attended these shows...now somebody refresh my memory...how did we determine which photos belonged to June 4th and which to June 5th...? As at least I have these dates the other way around...:smt120 :)

Don't ask me about memory. I think I have changed these photos back and forth too many times

You know what? I'm gonna change them around once more! :P
Especially since behind one of the Indian photos I got it was written: June 4 Hofheinz Pavillion, University of Houston Campus.
Also, if you look at Chris Brown's book, and where he was seated on June 4 and 5, it becomes fairly clear that the photos he attributed to June 4 (white phoenix) are taken from his June 5 seat! :)

I just have to say that seeing you guys discussing all those dates and all is fascinating. I'm not that much into Elvis' pics dates and all, but I have to say that I really enjoy reading your discussions.

Congrats on the hard work!

Having taken another look at the photos in Chris Brown's book I tend to disagree with you Scott.
On June 4 Chris was seated at the left corner of the stage (sec A, row 11, seat 7) while on June 5 he was seated just right of center stage (sec B, row 12, seat 3).
If you look at the photos in the White Phoenix they were clearly taken from the left side of the audience facing the stage. The rows of heads in front of Chris is forming a line pointing to the left which means that Chris is taking his photos with the camera pointing to the right for center stage. Also, if Elvis was seated on seat 3 he would only have two persons to the right of him while in the photos there seem to be at leats twice as many.

It's unfortunate, but we know that a date on the back of a photo is not always the same as the photo actually being from that date. Does the lady from whom you got the photos still have the tickets from the shows? Maybe they can tell us something about her photos.

Care to show some of the photos?

Brian, I think you are right. I took a closer look at Chris Brown's book and realized the error of my ways. I think we're now done as far as Houston 75 photos are concerned: white phoenix on 4th, Indian on 5th! Thanks!

I did before I took a closer look and found I had the photos right before I switched them around.
Now I have to change them again.

Work, work, work.
and so much FUN, FUN, FUN.
