In 1975, however, it's almost as if he's trying to assure the fans, as futile as it may have been, that underneath the sweaty, puffy build, garish jumpsuits, and lifeless eyes, that the real Elvis is still there, and things will get back together. Looking at it from this angle, you can't help but appreciate these performances.

Elvis remark on ''we did this song about 3 years ago'' Was kind of right because the last time he performed it was in november '72.
All the versions from 1975 are too close to call.
And when Elvis remarked when "we did a song about ......" he is referring to the studio recording, and he was often off a few years.

In short it is as good as it gets. No worries though, you set the bar that high, maybe you wont match it again, at least we have it on film.
So sorry i guess i mean that 1975 is a pale comparison. Just my opinion.
