Funky thank you, I corrected :wink:

At the same time, someone would have it a recent photo of Shirley Dieu and what has become of her since then? ?
Thank you

The one time he really needed the sunglasses, he took 'em off.

Here he is, wearing everyday clothing, looking a little heavy but certainly not excessively fat like he did in his stage costumes. His complexion and the profuse sweating speak volumes.

Elvis needed to stay in Hawaii for the year, working on his physical and mental health. He'd given enough to family, friends, and fans worldwide for 22 years. But it was not to be.

Agree, he should have stayed there, enjoying himself and getting in shape again...nice to see him in everyday clothing by the way...he does not look very healthy though...

There are lots of other (unpublished) Mar 1977 Hawaii photos where he looks fairly OK. For a week or two, the pressure was off. It should have been a lot longer than that.

Unfortunately for Elvis, it was too little too late. What never appears on any of the pictures from that period (and most of the 70s) is that 500-pound monkey on his back. :(

Easier said than done when you're Elvis Presley.

Unfortunately, there were fans waiting for him inside the Arizona State University Activities Center, in Tempe, on March 23rd!

Very well said Doc! It would have been a much-deserved break from the chaos that had become his life.

Doc, have you seen these unpublished photos? What is the primary reason they remain under wraps?

The owners simply do not want to sell them.

There is an amazing amount of such material in private hands, going back to the late 1940s.

All one can say when looking at these photos is "what a drag!"

Hard to believe only four years prior to this he was looking his regular ass-kicking best at the Aloha show.

C'mon Doc, lean on 'em for us and make 'em an offer they can't refuse

Interesting photos, Elvis really had changed a lot.

Yes it is a big difference between '73 & '77. Just remember, that man you see had an unbelievable amount of mileage on his body. He gave, gave & gave some more. I feel so damn sorry for him because he must have been miserable.

Re: March 1977 <-- why did they come from

Thu Apr 19, 2012 5:28 pm

Hi guys,
Can anyone tell me where this March 77 pics come from..?
I just recently purchases The Last Vacation and half the photos on the net from March 77 on the beach here at Kailau, are not in this book at all. So obviously there are has to be a source, does anyone know..

I will happy donate my The Last Vaction book to anyone who can help find this picture I'm looking for.
I know I did not dream the picture up. I saw it..

Anyone..?
