I normally skip over them.


Of course all topics are old, so skip mine as you feel to do, but this topic seems so trivial on one of Elvis' major 70's events, I commented the way I did. Sorry, but the Garden concerts are fine as they are.

I agree with this. They are among my favorite shows.

It probably would have helped if you would have responded with this answer previously.

Yes I understand. Sometimes I shoot too fast.

Unless I've missed some recent development, I believe it has long been established that the original LP and all subsequent releases run at 100% perfect speed.
The myth of the speeding-up comes from a well-intentioned but incorrect Ronnie Tutt quote.


You didn't miss anything... you are correct.


Yes -- it is irksome to keep seeing this rumour perpetuated as fact. Oh well.

The concert is speeded up and and Until It's Time For You To Go and Blue Suede Shoes were edited out. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

You forgot the encore performances of Lawdy Miss Clawdy, Big Hunk O' Love, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Burning Love, and Mystery Train/Tiger Man... :shock:

Don't forget the 1972 pool-side interview from the New York Hotel too.

No, no...that was at the Hawaiian Hilton during the week of rehearsal's for Aloha From Hawaii. Gregory Peck did an interview on Sunday afternoon after the final MSG performance from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. That was the whole reason the Saturday evening show was "sped up" so that Elvis could get back to the New York Hilton for the post performance cocktail party he was hosting and to iron out the topics to be covered during the interview with Gregory Peck. :lol:
