Thanks for posting. I was there at that show. For anyone who knows. Is "Hot Time In Miami" the only live release of this show? Would be cool to have a soundboard of the best show (performance not lookwise) of that 1st tour of 1977.

It is a shame it was only a one-liner.

I can't tell he's sick from this video. :D Seriously, I always thought this was one of the better and more complete concert videos going around in the late 70's - early 80's.

He definitely sounded better during this show than the day after (as on "Coming On Strong") where his vocals are downright painful. Only redeeming thing from that mess was an akward piano accompaniment to "Blueberry Hill" which brings a smile to my face (like in "what the hell was Tony thinking"?) :wink:

I like this concert and it's setlist. Elvis guitar strap breaks off during the end of See see rider so elvis improvised some moves by holding it out in the air.
and i got a woman-amen was sung without the guitar

Elvis does 22 songs here (I only count Early Morning Rain, Love Letters and School days from the band introductions as songs) leaving out the band intro's. Quite much for a 1977 show

He could be up and running one day, and the next show sleepwalking in 1977. But I rather like this particular show too.

You are inflating the actual program. For example, "School Day" shouldn't be credited as an "Elvis performance."

Elvis did 20 songs that evening.

Kinda funny. Elvis did the one liner as a joke knowing it would become one in the TWILIGHT ZONE! ::rocks

Did David Briggs make it through this whole tour?

Yup. His final "Love Letters" was done on 2-21-1977.

From the Crazy Canuck on this very site:

On February 13th, 1977 in West Palm Beach, Fla. we went around the pool to relax and benefit from the Sunshine State weather, however while talking about different things with my friend ,Ronnie Tutt and Jerry Scheff who were right beside us began to play an audio-tape, and surprise surprise we were hearing the February 12th, 1977 Hollywood show my friends and I attended the night before with perfect sound quality, although after the beginning of " I Got A Woman " Ronnie stopped playing it as many fans started to gather around them.

Yes indeed i'm afraid the footage shown is quite a poor copy of stuff i have seen about 40 minutes from Feb 12th in a better quality, but the 'source' of the footage doesn't want it released!~ which is why the majority of Feb 77' tour footage isn't on the final curtain boxed set.lt's my opinion is that Feb 12th & 13th shows were pretty awful Particularly Elvis's poor voice-as heard on unchained melody -with an aborted ending.He tried and over weight but it just isn't working. Thankfully voice and looks seemed to improve from Feb 14th onwards. :? 8)

I always count School days as a song elvis sang to as he usually sings throughout the whole track ''hail hail rock & roll''.

What a let down it must have been for the audience. For one split second they thought a rousing rendition of the international smash My Boy was coming.

That's right, and the question is, when did Elvis unplug him in anger over the Linda Thompson relatonship? Briggs says (Careless Love) right at the beginning of a show, before Elvis gets into See See Rider. We're getting the impression that it is in one of the shows in February, but if it incident occured at all it must have been at the END of the last show on the tour. Or maybe at the beginning of the first show on the next tour?

It is nowhere near good. We hear an unconvinsing My Way and we see a shadow of Elvis Presley struggeling with sheet music to make it through the song. It is a very sad clip.

Re: My Boy (1 liner) - My Way (footage & Sound)

Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:36 pm

I actually wonder if it happened at all, the tour is well documented and haven't seen any proof of Elvis unplugging Briggs.

Re: My Boy (1 liner) - My Way (footage & Sound)

Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:38 pm

Elvis tripped over the cord and unplugged it by mistake making his way to center stage.

Elvis in Feb was upbeat but out of breath and hoarse.
Compared to Dec a major drop and the Miami show wasn't the best of the tour I guess?

That said, Juan Luis you're so lucky you were in the same arena with Elvis, even in 1977.
I'm sure no 8mm footage, picture or soundboard or audience recording captures the feeling of being in the same building with our man.

Elvis using sheet music for My Way is no different in this show than the rest of the shows he did this year. It was part of the act.
