I took the 2nd one (my husband shook his hand that night!!) taken Aug.18th/69 midnight show! So lucky to have seen 2 shows in '69!!!!....................I still can't get over it!!! I'll never forget it even though it was practically 45 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!! We flew down from Canada (youth fare-cheap) - a couple at our table from Texas paid for our show on the 18th!!! We got up front for tipping only $2.00 (hey all the US money looks the same!) How lucky was that? - we came home with 15 cents in our pockets.............what great memories!!!! :D :D :D

What a moment to remember! I have your photo in my collection for ages now. Maybe your original photo looks much better, but my version needed some color correction and also some cleaning. Hope you like the result.

Yes it looks better now............................the original looks better too...........................the other 2 great ones I took that nite have been on this site too.........................he was like "the atomic powered singer" those nights for sure! I'll never forget those shows!!!!!!................my favourite shows are from '69, '70 and '71..................(of the ones I saw!) of course I loved all the rest right up to '76!!!............never ever saw a bad show but in my view Elvis was never the same from April 73 onward.............(from the shows I saw, that little sparkle in his eye was gone, something was missing........sad......?.) but that's just my opinion.................in the old days you traded pictures with everyone and these pictures are all over books and everywhere..no credits ever given.......we've put out a few bootlegs with some credit.......and when I think of all the trouble getting these pictures/shows of Elvis, all the travelling, flights, driving to see Elvis, one time I drove over 1000 miles without stopping to see him in Tahoe, kinda makes me a bit mad..................... :roll:
