    Hollywood, Florida, 12th February 1977 Footage

    I have uploaded a clip featuring the reprise of 'Hurt' (listen for the spectacular crowd reaction) and the beginning of 'Funny How Time Slips Away' from Elvis' performance in Hollywood, Florida, 12th February 1977

    I know we have a lot of 1977 enthusiasts on the forum, and I hope some of you will enjoy this little clip.

    He seemed lively and energetic in that 12/2/77 concert, even though he didn't look the best

    Thanks for the footage. Very interesting.

    Can you tell me please - if you know that - how much footage is available from this particular concert from February 12th? Also can you tell me something about the quality of your copy as it seems to be a pretty good one - the clip is heavily compressed or am I wrong on this one?

    Kind regards, J?rn

    Incredible footage, Mark. Many thanks.

    You know, I've said this fairly recently but it can't be stressed enough...Most people would be surprised at the overall level of quality of Elvis' performances throughout '77.

    People make judgments based on the photos they see--those from this venue probably being the best example--and assume he must not have put on much of a show. It is asked over and over what happened in the < six week period which fell between New Year's and this night, and that is understandable because physically the changes were indeed drastic. But the voice was still golden.

    Alright, I gotta watch it again.

    Fantastic footage

    And the way Elvis starts "Funny How Time Slips Away" gives me the December 1976 feeling. What a show this must have been (and what a contrast with the pictures that were taken during that tour -and fontly used by the press because of Elvis' bad looks-).

    I've seen quite a bit of footage from this show and it looks like a good, involved performance. from memory, isn;t this the show his guitar strap breaks after CC Rider and he does IGAWoman with just the microphone stand?
