Post here your Elvis' pictures

Your favorite photo between 69 and 71?

Sun Jan 12, 2014 2:55 pm

My wife is finally taking the plunge and getting an Elvis tattoo! She wants to get a picture of Elvis's face from between 69 and 71 (when he was most handsome apparently). I was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind posting your favorite up close shots from between 69 and 71 so dear wifey has a few to choose from. Any assistance is very much appreciated.
Thanks and keep TCB!

Sorry - I can't find the uncropped version of this you'd need for a tattoo, but this would make a fantastic image.

I don't believe it's from August 10th, but no apologies necessary. Thanks for posting the pic.

It is almost impossible to choose only one favorite photo from that period, but one of my all time favourite is this with a smiling and cool Elvis on stage in August 1969. :D

That very first photo should have been from the 9/70 tour, if I'm not mistaken. I believe it was used in a photo album. Who shot those for RCA or the Colonel I wonder? Look awfully good for Bonja shots...

A lot of cool images from Elvis' '69 Press Conference.

Here's one to consider…

I agree. I don't think I've seen a bad picture of Elvis from this press conference. He was at his physical peak. In fact, Elvis looks fantastic in almost all photos from July/August 1969. He was pretty much physically perfect during this period. I'd stick with 1969 over 1970/71!

It sure is!

I was going through pics from the '69 pressing conference trying to find one that might be helpful to MemphisBlue when I saw your avatar. Thanks!

"Thin as a rake and handsomer than 10 movie stars," said Sonny West of Elvis as the '69 Vegas gig approached.

As it happens, that quote was about Aloha, not the 69 appearance. The quote was then mis used on a 1969 photo in the same book, which I think was Jerry Hopkins The Final Years.

I thought Sonny said it for both, but first time was for the '69 appearance.
