    Re: VEGAS '69 - the new book

    Great book with many pics that we've seen before. Shame there isn't a section on the FTD CDs from the 1969 opening although all the shows are listed and the CDs to find them on. Sonny West sums up Elvis's live performances (see pic);and Elvis signs contract to perform at the International Hotel.

    There's a great pic from 1969-70 of Elvis and Nancy Sinatra,Frank Sinatra,Fred Astaire and Joe Esposito – Additionally there's loads of pics of Presley in his black suit rocking out with the band.

    Here's just a small taste from the book which really is essential for fans of Elvis's sensational 1969 Las Vegas opening–and your sure to play your 1969 CDs after thumbing through the book.

    Those pictures were taken Friday August 29th at the after-party for Nancy's first show at the International. She followed Elvis.

    In the book, she's quoted as saying she and her dad Frank attended Elvis' closing show, but she is mistaken. Frank never saw Elvis live.

    What would be the point? July 31 to August 28, 1969 - two shows a night for 2200 people each. All sold out. Done.

    As for the outfits, there is not enough detail as to a) what was worn and b) when they were worn. Also, there are no tracklist details for at least half the shows, and they haven't come to light ... yet.

    It would just be nice with a list in the book although i have it already. As for the outfits it's sad the details are missing. But we knew that anyway.

    I also am curious why Frank never saw Elvis live-and why Nancy thinks they saw him together?
    Dean Martin saw him I know, so did Sammy Davis many times, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop all seem to have seen him-why not Frank?
