    Best Elvis

    If you had a crowd of about 50 people and wanted to show them why you though elvis was the best performer ever, what 5 live performances would you show them?

    Mine would be:
    -Hound Dog-Berle 56'
    -Stuck on you- Sanatra 60'
    -Trying to get to you- 1st sit down show-68'
    -Polk Salad Annie- Aug 11,70 -outtake
    - American Troligy- Aloha 73'

    It's really hard to choose just 5 performances... anyway...I can try:

    1- Ready Teddy - Ed Sullivan Show
    2- If I Can Dream ('68 Comeback Special)
    4- Suspicious Minds (TWWII)
    3- An American Trilogy (Aloha)
    5- My Way (CBS 77)

    I'd say:

    1- Peace in the valley - Ready teddy (Ed Sullivan Show)
    2- If I can dream - Saved or If you're looking for trouble ('68 Comeback Special)
    4- Suspicious minds - Mystery train/Tiger man (TWWII)
    3- An American trilogy - How great Thou art (Aloha)
    5- My way - Unchained melody (CBS 77)

    It's difficult thou, because there were many strong songs in all thse concerts.
    I was also thinking about the shows with Milton Berle. They were often funny too.

    Can't agree with that. My Way '77 is a much more emotionally-charged performance

    I love buth but I agree with you...I've always seen that performance as the best...maybe because it's taken from his last tour
