Stranger In The Crowd 8-23 70 - Midnight Show

Sun Jul 28, 2013 11:52 am

My "American III- Stage Fright" CD has "Stranger In The Crowd" listed as from the Midnight Show on 8-13-1970.
My FTD "The Wonder Of You" has it as Dinner Show is this correct or was this sung at both shows?

The FTD is correct, and the only known live performance.

And it was definitely not done at the 8-23-1970 - Midnight Show.

It's a fine rendition, but would have benefited by Elvis getting more comfortable by doing it at more shows.

Yup. And they should have left out the annoying horns at the end.

And for Elvis' lyric change... :wink:

The ending is surprising. You expect a "cha-cha-cha", but Tutt & Co did it twice as fast. :D
