Assuming the import CD houses the ES, and assembling the AS from the 1974 fan report, this means Elvis closed out the Astrodome with a shorter set. I guess he was tired.

One set list has 18 songs and the other has 19. So what?

You seem convinced that the Colonel donkey ride took place during the A/S so can you tell me which point in the Madison release that we can hear when this occurs, as we can clearly see Duke Bardwell applauding during this. I would also bet that Elvis would have commented on it.

Elvis did Sweet Caroline during the AS..no doubt..after Trying To Get To You..we don`t have it on the tape in question.

Anyone with eyes may see the photographs and Super 8mm film depict the ride during the AS.

Hope this helps.

I'd love to be proven right on this, but one can never be sure until concrete proof appears. Everything so far seems to indicate that the recording is from the evening show, though...

I found the set lists..Sweet Caro was AS..we don`t have it here..

The footage also proves it because sweet caroline is in there, as u can see on 1:09

Yup.

Ok, won't be able to finish the synching today but as far as I got it seems pretty obvious to me that the audio does not match the footage proving the point made by Scott Hayward. Hopefully I will be able to finish and upload the final result of the dubbed footage by tomorrow.

I'm sorry but I just don't find the time to finish this thing at the moment. I have just called it quits for now and uploaded what I have done so far with this footage. It's all just bits and pieces but that's all I could do with the little time I had available.
Maybe I will find more time later to finish this up but for now that's all I can do.

Thanks for this! Will FTD ever release this? It sounds good to me...if FTD isn't going to release it, Cisco, I will have to hunt down the boot.
