Elvis hadn´t looked this good since 1970, yes Aloha included. Reasonable sideburns might be part of the answer...

I agree he looks very good in a lot of pictures from this season, even though he's some thirty pounds heavier than in Aloha. A guy I know who saw Elvis during this engagement however thought he looked like a wax doll at close view. I wonder if Elvis used fake tan cream on stage at this season, as his skin does not quite looks the same in the meeting with Jackie Wilson. It could be the lightening, but note the paler area below his eyes. Maybe he hadn't take his glasses off while sunbathing. Rarely a sucessfull thing.

Was he really 30 pounds heavier? I always thought he looked pretty good in August-September 1974. And I think he looks a lot better/healthier than he did for the Aloha show. (Which is strange because August-September 1974 was a pretty tumultuous period in Elvis' life.) I even think he looks pretty good in the infamous Karate demonstration footage in Memphis. A bit of a belly and a little tired looking but still looking pretty good. It was reminiscent of the look he had during the filming of TTWII.

It's hard to tell, my guess is the timings for the performers that evening.

No way does he look as good as he did in Aloha. Not the worst he ever looked, but he doesn't even look as good here as he did in late June-early July of the same year.
