This is no real photo, it's been photoshopped.

I'm not so sure it is photoshopped. There are lots of photos of Elvis and Ginger in the back of limo's on tour around this time.

I think it's maybe either the way the light is reflecting in a frame, or maybe a photo that's been taken from a magazine / paper, but I don't think it's doctored as such.

The image appears to be from a newspaper or magazine.

And I agree, it is indeed a little disturbing. That no one has noticed why is surprising.

The candid reflects the hopelessness of his lonely 1977 one-nighters, and foreshadows events soon to come.

There no reason to be afraid, it's all history now.

Do you think the shot is from the June 1977 tour?

The head is from a newspaper cutting just stuck on the back of his head is square!

It's actually a original news paper clipping that someone used a highlight brush on to try to lighten Elvis in the pic, to give more detail such as his hair outline in the back of the photo. It is not a cutout pasted on as can clearly be seen if the left side of the photo where cropped in to hide the highlight tampering.

Thanks Promisedland - that was what I was getting at. Thanks for clarifying...

You're welcome. Here is what the photo most likely looked like before being tampered with by reversing the dodge tool.

Surely that's the Sundial suit? It doesn't look anythng like the Indian Feather suit?

With so little to go on, dating the pic could prove impossible....

Arty - you are absolutely wrong. It's the Sundial suit.

I am thinking late May - early June.

A friend of mine has a never seen, original picture of Elvis on stage in 77 with the other suit he wore in 77 besides the sundial and indian feather (don't know it's name) with his head bowed and his eyes closed, that if you turn it on it's side, it looks like he's in his casket.

My friend is holding on to it because he thinks it will one day be worth a lot of money. Its a close-up of his face and it would make a great cover for a possible gospel album or book about his last year.
