Damn -- how many Elvis shows does John Herman have under his belt?

Anyone who loves the superb audience recording of Pittsburgh 12-31-1976 is forever in John's debt -- not to mention your kind efforts with the FTD edition.

Thank you for posting these sheets!

First shot on the left from '76 is really nice...

Did your friend record the DS from December 11th?

Thanks to all

John attended many shows, I have his permission to share photos from any and all he took. I will try to post others as I can

And yes Joern, he did record it.

I would love to see any pictures your friend took and it would be great, if he did record the Pittsburgh show, if he could cut a few more deals with FTD to get some more shows released that he recorded.

Do you recall any shows that he attended that haven't been represented with a CD or picture, Greybreard??

It's not "if" -- John's tape was used for the classic 1977 2xLP bootleg as well as the later FTD set. Listen closely to the latter for some clues originally edited out of the LP release 31 years ago.

Hm, that makes me wonder if his source does sound different (better) than the recently released CD "Vegas Variety Volume 2" from Rainbow Records or did they use his recordings without his permission.

since I am not familiar with that disc or it's source I cannot answer that. Here is a link to a sample of the one that JH did. It will only be available a short while.

The look on Kathy's face speaks volumes to me. She loved him regardless.

Greybeard -- tell your friend a big thank you for letting you share with us.

I was actually looking for something else when I bumped into this topic but noticed that one of the Indy shots on the opening post is a pretty cool 'same moment, different angle' snap for a pair of more well-known photos from Indianapolis. We used to have a topic over at another forum where we collected tons of these type of pairs together - nothing earth shattering as such but fun to see.

Believe it or not but the two (almost) full body shots do come from different cameras - can't remember the photographers, though.

In anycase, (practically) the same moment captured with three different cameras.

Neat.

Greybeard, how about some more from the John Herman archives?

Really nice pics. I love the look on Kathy's face as she's looking at Elvis in the December 1976 photo.
