    I totally agree with you. 1969-1970. Although each of the years following were unique and in a way the best, imo.

    Yup Rosanne, in '69 and '70 (TTWII) were definitely his best years. As a second (or third), I would have loved to have seen him in 1975 even though he'd gained weight, his face and body were fuller but healthy looking and in all the photos of him he looked like he was having a great time.

    I was fortunate enough to see him 10 times from August of 71 to December of 76.....he looked great in 73 as well, around the time of AFH.

    I would pick ...1970. It was the first time I saw ELVIS in person so may be of some influence on me (be still my heart). My favorite year(s) for ELVIS were 68, 69, 70, 71.

    I will never forget you Rosanne.

    I'd say its a tie for me. 1956, and 1969 when he started playing live again. Two different Elvis's in amazing form as a performer both at the top of their game .
    Most performers are short lived , but Elvis lasted so long he rose to the top twice and that second time in 69 reminded us why they started calling him King the first time around.

    I'm not going to say one specific year but I am going to say 68-73 (Aloha).
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    He was simply beautiful in the 68 Comeback Special, but he looked also gorgeous in 1969 and in 1970 in 'That's The Way It Is'!! I think he was in his top physical shape in that film. And he also looked great in 'Aloha From Hawaii' in 1973.
