He didn't lose his way through, Are You Lonesome Tonight", he was just joking with the crowd. You could see his mischeivious grin before he starts the speaking part. If people are going to say that was due to drugs and just that he had a good sence of humor, then we would have the say that the recording of the, 1960 concert in Hawaii he was stoned. Cause he was making fun of the speaking part of "AYL" then too, among other songs.
I don't know Mojo Elvis.
I know what you mean about him messing with the crowd during AYLT at the Rapid City concert, but in Omaha, from the beginning he forgot the lyrics. Also at the end of the speaking part, it looks like he just forgot what he was doing>>??
Georgia June 1st 1977
thanks for that photo Jumpsuit Junkie
Never seen it before(y)(y)
As I look at various photos, I notice some color differences. In many, the Sundial suit looks to be off-white rather that a brighter white (such as the Aloha suit). Does anyone know the true color of the Sundial Suit?
They could have made him a better suit or altered some of the other ones! There were & there are singers that are way more "big boned ":Pthan Elvis and they don't wear the same suits all the time! It wouldn't have been hard at all to change it up alittle!
Matt, is this picture you just posted of the TV '77 Concert? If so he really looks a lot better on this photo than he did on television. Maybe television cameras make a person look heavier and shows up the heavy make-up he had on more?
First is from March..maybe the 27th :
I cant stand this suit. It really looks like a cheap suit. I dont know why Elvis wore this, it really brought out his weight because of the big sundial. A 2 piece suit would have been best for him. IMO
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...a/icon_sad.gif nonesence..but i would have to agree when u say the way to go for elvis as a change back in 76-77 was the 2 piece outfits no belts..and disagree with you the sundial jumpsuit is one of elvis most beautiful jumpsuits ever one of my favs.peace:cold:
The suit is one of the most beautiful suites..if you've seen this suite in person, you would say the same thing, trust me.
Are you kidding me, a 2 piece suite in June of 1977. it don't matter whether he wore a 2 piece suite or the sundial, or any other suite for that matter. The man was severley over weight. Regardless of what he wore. So it's not the suites fault Elvis looked overwight because Elvis was overweight. Plain and simple. And EPMoodyblue, that photo of Elvis in the King Of Spades aka Arabian 1974 suite looks killer in your new signature, photo's from June 18th 1977 Kansas City(y)
iv never liked this suit but when i went to graceland and saw it had to change my mind (y):king:
This suit is Elvis' finest ever. Period. Just perfect.
"Hi sabbath, I think we can finally lay to rest the myth that there were two Mexican Jumpsuits forever, when Leroy meeet with Gene Docette the designer for the majority of Elvis' Jumpsuits he clearly stated that there was only ever one Jumpsuit made and that by the end of 1977 it was completely worn out by it's extended usage by Elvis, this would explain why there were buttons missing and when the suit was repaired they were never replaced.
Matt: You are not right.
There was 2 "editions".
One made i 1974 with 3 buttons and one made in 1977 with only 2 buttons.
FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL! - HERE:
3 BUTTON VERSION USED:
28.04.77: Green Bay
30.04.77: St. Paul
2 BUTTON VERSION USED:
31.05.77: Baton Rouge
21.06.77: Rapid City
22.06.77: Sioux Falls
23.06.77: Des Moines
During Elvis last shows from may until June 26 the "3 buttons version" was prepered by Elvis crew for every new show (cleaning etc.). Elvis very seldom used the same suit two days in a row, but during his final shows he did for unclear reasons. He probably felt comfortable in the Mexican Sundial Suit with only 2 buttons on sleeves?
