It was June 26, 1977 Indianapolis I think, and the guy was not George Klein but Ernest Rodrigues.

Wow, what DVD cost that much? :blink: Yes, Todd Slaughter was there, too.... had an odd account of Elvis when he presented Slaughter at the airport with some kind of award. He said Elvis was in horrible condition then, which some fans dispute. I don't know. The man was there, face to face with Elvis, we weren't :hmm: Oh well. :D

Is it correct to assume that the Moody Blue LP was selling a lot better in 1977 than some of Elvis' other recent releases? (Talking about before his death of course.)

I can't recall any pictures of Elvis being presented with a gold record for Today or Good Times....

How was the LP doing on the charts before Elvis died?

Someone correct me if I've got a detail wrong here, but that award actually had little to do with the then-success of Moody Blue, which was just released that month. I believe it was the billionth record pressed by RCA. Now, Elvis was the single greatest driving force behind RCA's success, so it was unquestionably appropriate that the award be presented to him (even if the billionth record to have been pressed ended up being someone else's).

I'll let someone else speak to the chart success of Moody Blue prior to August 16. I do believe it was doing well though, particularly on the Billboard country chart.
