Here’s what we have so far...

Elvis receiving gold awards for Madison Square Garden LP and The Wonder of You single in Las Vegas - August 1, 1972.
Unfortunately, the video quality is not good.

Elvis receiving award (0:31) for "Moody Blue" {album} at the Indianapolis Airport - June 26 1977. This was not a gold award, but a presentation for the billionth (some reports say two billionth) record pressed by RCA, which just happened to be Moody Blue.

Although these clips don't have Elvis receiving gold record awards, I thought it would be good to include them in this thread.

Indeed he does! His clothes are -- for him -- quite casual, but he looks awesome.

He's also trimmer and tanner than he was at MSG on June 10, just seven weeks earlier.

Clearly, Elvis was ready to knock 'em dead for his opening show on August 4.

This might be the closest thing to jeans he ever wore in the later years. Very cool!

Some nice things to look through on this thread thank ya.!

Great post, EPA4368, thank you.

Just to clarify, I think that's George Parkhill of RCA on the Madison picture.

Steve Sholes died in 1968.

Fabulous picture, though!

I'd seen the pic of our man receiving the disc for MSG before but had forgotten how cool he looked. He looks better than Aloha. 8)

Thanks to YOU Doc,you did all the work!I just pointed you in the direction(gave you a wrong date,actually :oops: )

BTW,the other "official" LP awards he had up to this point recieved were;

Elvis(1960)
Elvis' Golden Records(1961)
Blue Hawaii(1961)
GI Blues(1963)
Girls Girls Girls(1963)
