You're so true.
But you might change "But based on how EPE/Graceland treats Elvis in 1977, one could easily get the impression that he was simply horrible during the final 8 months of his life" into "the final 4 years".
It seems like EPE feel emberassed about the post-Aloha Elvis and want to everything about it to forget that period. They are nothing better than the gossipmagezines that talked trash about Elvis during the 70s.
You are 100% right Albert, and I should have posted that in my response, but since we were talking about 1977 specifically, that is why I limited my response to the last 8 months of Elvis' life!
But you are dead-on accurate with your assessment, and I have said this to many other fans I have talked to....that as far as EPE is concerned (so it seems), Elvis' career was over after ALOHA!! In fact, we should be thankful that RCA has the final say in what is released (although EPE does have input, but since RCA owns the catalog, they have the final say in what is released on CD)...if EPE had their say, at least 1/2 of the FTD releases would have never seen the light of day!!!
Thanks for bringing that up Albert...I am glad you are in my corner on this one!! (y)
