I don't know. I would like to think it was later. He looks about a decade older and wearier than he did a year before, or even months before. And look at his eyes: they are swollen.

I am going to guess at least a year forward from 1970, but I'm sure others know better. It's just facial observation; I'm not a jumpsuit specialist by any means.

On second thoughts, it can easily be 1974 judging by the sideburns. He may be wearing the "Blue Swirl" with a plain white chest on the suit.

It's from the evening show in Philadelphia, PA. June 23, 1974
Here are a couple of alternative color shots.

June 23, 1974 is correct. The photo was taken by Phil Gelormine.

I think there may have been a post, the second post, that suggested it was not 1970.

And that poster is not a jumpsuit expert. And still made the catch, if not the precise date.

Not boasting; just fyi. ;)

Carry on! Great work!
