    That performance is somewhat special to me.

    I remember my first trip to Graceland at the young age of 13 (can't believe its been that long) amd there in the gift shop across the street from Graceland I purchased the dvd Elvis Presley's Graceland on VHS.

    I was a fan of 2 years at that time, and had only seen Elvis in TTWII SE and Aloha From Hawaii. As I watched the dvd, having never seen any footage or photo's of Elvis from 1977 and the How Great Thou Art clip appeared on the television, I loved it. From that moment on everytime I seen that part in the tape, I would crave more and more, a real special performance for this fan.

    Forgot that gem. It was on July 19, 1975 Uniondale, New York.

    Also let me remind everyone of the version of Where No One Stands Alone from Feburary 13th 1977....

    Meledy so many more you remind me of I can't believe I left off.

    1977 for example - best version of My Way from 6-21-77.

    Pieces Of My Life from July 24th 1975 Ashville...Turn Around Look At Me etc..

    gave me a mountain : ????, ????? (help pls) (spoken version)
    I would say personally the version from September 2nd 1974 Closing show on the infamous Desert Storm Cd to be the ultimate, 2nd only to the one on Dragonheart FTD.

    Something about the spoken versions that get me, more emotion, you can feel how Elvis feels in his voice.
