    This was taken in 1970 at the end of February. This was at a press conference immediately after he landed in Houston for his first concert performance outside of Las Vegas. Actually, I read yesterday that the press conference was held at the airport.

    Yesterday I read this

    "With only a couple of days break after this phenomenally successful season Elvis was 'back' amongst the mass audience before 207,494 fans in the next three days at the massive huge HOUSTON ASTRODOME arriving on Wednesday evening 25th February in Kirk Kerkorian's private DC-9 jet (owner of the International). Elvis departed to give the FAMOUS Press conference (right away in the lobby of the Houston air terminal where looking very elegant in white jerkin trousers and a red shirt. Elvis appeared jovial and in great spirits notable Elvis said he didn't consider himself strictly a country singer' and mentioned his Karate interest, Throughout Elvis's lips looks wet and he seems nervous at times, he jokes as sirens are heard outside snd his good natured appeal comes shining through to the fans outside the press room area who were tapping on the windows!"

    But after he finished all of the concerts, this was written:

    "Just before the final show on 1st March 1970 was a brief press conference again with Elvis wearing a two tone Western styled outfit, a waist coat dark patterned paisley scarf and a wide leather studded belt with a 'spokes' design on the buckle. The purpose of this 2nd press conference was to present Elvis with a selection of gifts and gold award discs for his 3 million selling singles: 'IN THE GHETTO', 'SUSPICIOUS MINDS,' and 'DON'T CRY DADDY' also 2 GOLD Albums: 'Elvis in person at the International Hotel in Las Vegas' and 'From Elvis in Memphis'. From the Rodeo officials Elvis received a King Midas Rolex watch worth $2.500 and a Texas Stetson hat! Finally Sheriff Buster Kern presented Elvis and Col. Parker with a highly collectable Gold deputy sheriff's badge. "

    It appears that Elvis has vaseline in one corner of his mouth. Like you sometimes do if you have a fever blister. This entire interview was on Youtube a few months back, but much like evrything else on Youtube, the Elvis police got it.

    I also found this picture and never paid attention to it until this thread:
