Unfortunately, that's all I can remember from what I was told.
Pheonix filmed, at least in part (quite a portion), but the quality isn't fantastic. Of course, that may be becasue the collector had film that wasn't early generation. Like I said, there may not be any sound.
Hi londonflash, not sure if I'm understanding you correctly are you saying, your contact does have Phoenix footage where one sees Elvis on stage, but it's not the best quality, yet it is MGM film ...not 8mm footage, and you personally haven't seen it, only what you have been told, is that correct?
Boston, much better. Test film for MGM. Possibly just one camera like the Buffalo show filmed early April. That begs the question, why film the Buffalo concert in that way too? Extra practice? A mate who's seen the Boston film told me it was brilliant. Once again, film quality not tremendous (and remember Elvis was wearing black). Thing is, there seems to be no record of the gig being filmed in MGM's paperwork.

Buffalo on April 5 was videotaped, not filmed.

This guy isn't a contact, just someone I spoke to via pms about this a couple of years ago when a similiar post apeared on here.
Yes, Elvis is seen on stage in the Pheonix film, and it's defintiely MGM film.
No, I've never seen it, but this chap can be believed.
Well, lets hope what you say is true, meaning the fellow who PM you was telling you the truth....
Are you able to describe some other things about this fellow without giving him away as to why you might believe him?
What sort of collector is he?
Are you still in contact?
How did the contact start?
Doc - or anyone else - what's the difference between film and videotape? Cameras etc is not really something I know much about.

This footage screams to be released, but I'm affraid we can forget about 2007. Because it's just damn near!

Doc, I'm was not trying to suggest we as fans wouldn't be
happy with what we would see....if shown to us....
It sometimes can be a technical issue with the people involved
depending on whether or not they are anal about this type of
material being released....because of the quality difference
involved....between 3/4 inch magnetic tape verses 16 mm
On its own merit personally I wouldn't see a problem an nor
would too many people...however there sometimes
can be a problem for the powers that be, for them
in an artistic sense....and possibly in a technical way....
Their problem, not ours...
Still technology is so advance now these days, improvements
could be made if needed...to satisfy...I would like to
think so anyway....
BTW, if you're going to improve the back cover of LSP-4445 ...
... why not flip the reverse-image in the lower right hand corner ("4. Stranger In The Crowd") as well?

Great show. Does anyone know of BMG has a soundboard of it? Does Sessions III list it as a possible board? Don't have the book handy at the moment....
