I have always thought that Alohas "What Now My Love" is the best vocal performance Elvis ever did on TV.
It has everything in it, wide range, huge climb at the end, soft tender notes in the middle...and Elvis proves he can sing this middle of the road number and make it anything but-middle of the road.
After that I think "If I Can Dream" and "Trilogy"
but will acknowledge I love "Fame and Fortune" from the Sinatra special...just such a smooth velvety performance that grabs you.
Some of the Dorsey show performances were incredible. Money Honey was amazing!
You just cited two great EP perfomances on the Dorsey show. Well done ROR!
Reddy Teddy, I Was the One, Stuck On You, Trying to Get To You, If I can Dream, What Now My Love, Unchained Melody.
I think for me it's really hard to chose between If I can Dream which is an amazing performance vocally and the emotion he puts into the song and What Now My Love that just showcases his vocal ability to the hilt, and he makes it look easy the mark of how true his greatness and mastery of his voice was.
