No.

Not sure why he would have mentioned it in concert.

That was missing on my copy of Tucson '76.

Mine too.

I'm still amazed he actually did "Danny Boy" for real in 1976, and that a fan actually convinced him on the fly to sing it. I would have liked to have heard Elvis do more rare stuff and requests. I'm amazed he still cared enough at that point, to actually perfrom "Danny Boy" live, and even attempt "Moody Blue," at all. By June 1977, somebody actually requests Moody Blue and he more or less tells the fan to forget it.

(I remember after he does Unchained Melody on Feb 16 - Charlie actually goes "Jailhouse?" and Elvis responds - "No way, take it out.")

My guess is that Always On My Mind, Last Farewell, and many other rarities were only performed live on stage during the 70's by either Johnny Hara or Orion :(

But thankfully, Roger Whittaker sang it many times on stage in the 70s.

I assume you have plenty of underground recordings of such instances?
