1977

02-12-77 Hot Time In Miami/ Unchained In Hollywood (Good Audience Recording) (This concert can be seen on the vcd Live In Hollywood, Fl 1977. Despite how bad Elvis looks at this show, the show isn’t bad at all. His voice is very strong and powerful, and he doesn’t sound as tired as the rest of the year. Highlights are My Boy (one line only), My Way, Funny How Time Slips Away, and Unchained Melody )

02-13-77 Arrival Of The King (Good Audience Recording)/ Coming On Strong

(Soundboard Recording)(West Palm Beach, FL) (One of the smallest venues for Elvis as

the crowd was maximized to 5981 in size. Not really that good of a show. Mostly oldies with no showstoppers.)

02-16-77 Elvis In Montgomery (complete show) (Good Audience Recording) / Coming

On Strong (Soundboard Recording) (Good show. After You Gave Me A Mountain, Elvis tells the audience "Thank you for that mediocre response, Thank you." and then he turns to Charlie and says "Hey, I just calls it hows it sees it." You can see this on the video. For the only time, E sings Where No One Stands Alone, and a great Polk Salad Annie, and Unchained Melody.)

02-17-77 Savanna 77 (Good Audience Recording) (Good Show. A very good version of Unchained Melody, and also does one of the last "reprised" versions of Hurt.)

02-20-77 The King Still Reigns (Charlotte, NC) (Good Audience Recording) (During the show during the intros, Elvis calls up Gingers' sister, Terry, to perform some classical music at the piano much to her embarrassment, to which the crowd does not like at all. Highlights are Fairytale, How Great Thou Art, and an attempt at Moody Blue. Elvis attempts Moody Blue for the 1st time unsuccessfully. Unable to reach the high notes, Elvis tears up the lyric sheet in a combination of bravado and helpless rage.)

02-21-77 Moody Blue and Other Great Performances (Soundboard Recording)

This also happens to be the last concert of Elvis' final Spring Tour making it essential to any fan's collection. Elvis sings Fever for the last time. Tonight, he also changes the lyrics of "Can’t Help Falling in Love" to "Wise men know/When it’s time to go….")

04-24-77 A Profile-The King On Stage Vol. 1 (CD 4) (Soundboard Recording) (Ann

Arbor, MI) / Fans To Fans (Complete show) (Very Good Audience Recording) (By far

and wide, the BEST show of 1977. E is aware that RCA is recording the show for Moody Blue, and so he is on his best behavior, and from the concert the album had Unchained Melody, If You Love Me, Let Me Know, and Little Darlin’. Elvis is in great mood and spirits for this show, and even sings one line of Blue Hawaii. Unfortunately, you can only get the complete show from the audience recording, as only a few songs were recorded on soundboard. The remainer of the "Profile" disc is from 2/13/77.)

unedited (Very Good Audience Recording) (Elvis is passed out cold prior to tonight’s show. "Eyes closed, jaw slack, Elvis looked helpless, as if he were in a coma," Larry Geller wrote in his memoirs. Dr. Nick is attempting to revive Elvis with ice water when the Colonel comes barging into the suite. He goes on to have private words with Dr. Nick. On his way out, he turns to Larry shaking his cane and says, "The only thing that’s important is that he’s on that stage tonight. Nothing else matters!" Highlights of the show are That`s All Right, My Way, Hearbreak Hotel, and Hurt.)

05-22-77 …Tonight, 8:30PM (Largo, MD) (Good Audience Recording) (In Landover (source - Careless Love), Elvis leaves the stage for "nature’s call," tosses two microphones on the floor, and, according to a Washington Star reviewer, "just refused to turn it on." He does sing a rarely sung Funny How Time Slips Away early in the show.)

Bonus tracks include Unchained Melody, Heartbreak Hotel, and Bridge Over Troubled Water from the next night from a better source than the bootleg concert)

05-27-77 Second Night In Binghampton (Excellent Audience Recording) (Great show! Video is on the wrongly named vcd "Mobile ‘77". E Sings Bridge Over Troubled Water, Unchained Melody, and several other great versions of songs. You can see this show on the vcd’s Elvis 77 – The May Tour and 2nd Night in Binghampton.)

05-28-77 Philadelphia '77 (Good Audience Recording) (You can see this show on the vcd Elvis 77 – The May Tour. Elvis can’t remember his lyrics and appears to stagger onstage. He actually receives boos from the crowd, and when he begins singing "I Can Help," someone in the arena hollers out, "You need help!". This is a very short show. At one point, E stops the show to have J.D. and the Stamps sing Walk That Lonesome Road.)

06-02-77 Live in Mobile, AL / As Time Goes By (Good Audience Recording) (Great show! Elvis sings American Trilogy and Polk Salad Annie for the last time. The ending on Polk Salad is very wild and it goes longer than 2:25.)

06-18-77 Kansas City (Good Audience Recording)/ Last Night In Spades (Good Audience Recording) (Kind of a "Down" show. Elvis sings Blue Christmas for the last time. "In spite of what you may hear or you may read, we’re here, and we’re healthy, and we’re doing what we enjoy doing," he announces to the crowd. You can see this show on the vcd’s Touring The Nation and The Final Tour.)

06-19-77 As I Leave You/ Candid Elvis On Camera (Soundboard Recording) (As we all know, this is a horrible show. I would put this the #3 worst show ever (1st being Houston '76 from sources, and 2nd being the San Antonio '76 show). Compared to the night before or after, it seems almost as if it's an impersonator because of how "out of it" he is on the show. Elvis does try to speak of a lot of interesting dialogue, but the words are so slurred at times, that there is no way anybody in the auditorium could have understood what he was saying. In this show, while singing Are You Lonesome Tonight? Elvis does the "gay act" with Charlie. I think that they told him not to do that on the other show and thats why we have one of the only Are You Lonesome Tonight versions '75 and up without Charlie there in Rapid City. As bad as the show is overall, Elvis still manages to do a phenomenal version of How Great Thou Art, and a very good version of Hurt where Elvis actually hits the Very high note at the end, rather than the standard lazy '77 version. Each night after this one, he hits the high note everytime. The video can be seen on the vcd Elvis In Concert and in it’s entirety on the vcd Omaha ’77)

06-20-77 Elvis Rocks In Lincoln (Good Audience Recording) (Elvis sings Help Me for the last time and a great Unchained Melody.)

06-21-77 Elvis Rocks Rapid City/ Lord Let Me Go Home (Soundboard Recording) (Excellent show. Sings Trying To Get To You for the last time. The video can be seen on the vcd Elvis In Concert and in it’s entirety on the vcd Rapid City Concert Outtakes.)

06-23-77 Elvis Rocks In Des Moines (Bad Audience Recording) (Good show. Ronnie Tutt had to be replaced by the Inspiration’s druumer due to a crisis. Last version of How Great thou Art and a fantastic Hurt.)

06-24-77 One Night (Madison, WI) (Good Audience Recording) (Sings One Night for the last time. Good show. You can see this show on the vcd Touring The Nation.)

06-24-77 For One Night Only (2 CD) (Good Audience Recording) (Complete show including warm-up acts)

06-25-77 Since Cincinatti '77(Excellent Audience Recording)/Riverfront Stadium **Better Quality)(Excellent Audience Recording) (Elvis sings If You Love Me Let Me Know, And I Love You So, My Way, and Unchained Melody for the last time. You can see this show on the vcd Touring The Nation.Its a very enjoyable show, although very sad.)

06-26-77 The Last Live Session (Excellent Audience Recording) **BEST SOUND**/ Adios-The Final Performance (Very Good Audience Recording)/ The Last Farewell (Very Good Audience Recording)/ The Final Performance (2 CD) (Excellent Audience

Recording) (This is the complete show directly from the master tapes. It includes all 12 songs of the warm up acts, J.D. Sumner and the Stamps and the Sweet Inspirations. This is the complete live Elvis experience, not to mention it's the last show in the most complete and best quality form to date.
