Here is another one from Houston 1970. Anyone know the date? I love his fringed jacket! Don't think it is colorized though.

It's true color, and IIRC taken when Presley was en route to his 2-28-1970 AS in Houston, the third of six dynamic performances.

I really like that one; thanks!

rjm (And this shows him in "full fringe" BEFORE the "Woodstock" film was released! And not on stage, either. Cool. Very cool.)

I've always wondered about those shots. He has a scarf on, so was this a stage outfit? I've never seen photos of it if it was...

Frankie, I think he's wearing that fringed jacket over the top of the blue tapestry suit that he would wear for the matinee on the 28th Feb. If you look in this pic, you can see the white macrame stage belt underneath the jacket.

Here's a pic from the actual show, in the same suit, courtesy of Fransesc.

Indeed, Darryl. Thanks for the clarification. Learn something every day, even at my age. Lol
