I'm not convinced Javier, Ed Parker isn't wearing the same clothes from the images on Paul's page....albeit that the dates on Paul's photos are correct : http://www.elvis-collectors.com/candid- ... oat76.html

No idea I'm afraid...i've checked on Francesc's page to see which dates he wore the '74 Arabian and looked in my files for corresponding candid shots but drew a blank on quite a few dates he wore it unfortunately

Maybe Ann Arbor, April 77? Certainly, that brown leather jacket was one Joe was wearing on this tour:

The photos in question do not seem to be definitely from Atlanta in December 1976, as Ed Parker is wearing different clothing.

Here is a candid of Elvis arriving at the venue, with Ginger Alden and Ed Parker.

So the photos probably come from 1977. He wore the suit maybe ten times that year.

My guess is 2-19-1977 in Johnson City, TN.

Don't think it's Johnson City Doc, got this photo from Johnson City with Ed Parker wearing his black leather jacket. Also it looks like he's wearing the V Neck suit belt ( In the above photos ) which, apart from Johnson City which we know it isn't, rules out '77 completely.We can also rule out December 2, 5th, 12th & 30th '76, which leaves us with the only possible dates below.

October 18 76 Sioux Falls
October 21 76 Kalamazoo
October 23 76 Richfield OH
November 28 76 San Francisco


.....the mystery continues

That does not appear to be Ed Parker in the 2-19-1977 image. The hair is far too dark.

I'll agree to disagree with you on that one, I think it's Ed all day. The shape of the head, sorry Ed but you did have kind of a block head, the leather jacket...and who else in the posse would be standing there guarding our boy who looks like Ed from the back?

It could be Dick Grob, Tom Hulett or Sam Thompson.

Not sure Doc, just think the hair is a little too thick for the others. Ed had really thick hair compared to the rest. I agree it looks a little dark but we've had discussions about lighting & how it can alter things. Nope i'm going to dig my heels in, I still think it's Ed... but i'm open minded, if it's not him I'll hold my hands up. Would like to know what the others think....Ed or not folks, if not, who is it?

It is Ed.

I bought that set of three photos from photographer Helen Parcus when they were new pictures. She wrote Atlanta 12/30/76 on the back of each. The one where Elvis is striding purposefully along, taken from almost above his head, has "going on" written on it, and the one with his arms around Joe and Ed has "going off" written on the back. The one in the doorway has neither, but it looks like coming off as he has his arm around Joe (??)

And the doorway one with his arm around Joe also shows the same dark blue scarf as in the one with "going off" written on it.

Thanks for the Info there Chris....if that's the case then I don't know why Ed would arrive in a black leather jacket, change into a blue one almost immediately upon arriving at the venue & keep it on until they left.

Thanks guys for clarifying that information :)

But in the second one he wears a white scarf. Looks like moments before of concert while he´s enter at coliseum.

I have an original of the picture of Elvis in blue between Joe and David Stanley, and on the back is written "Troy Hilton, Troy, Mich 4-26-77 Mary Lou Britigan" and also an original of the one of E and Joe in Elvis tee-shirt, which has Bob Heis's stamp on the back + the info Detroit 22 April 77.
