    You're not alone! I've yet to find anyone who doesn't find that passage very hammy. But the gangbusters ending redeems the performance: "A-me-Ri-CAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    I bet a bald eagle flew out of Elvis's mouth when he sang that.

    It is the In Concert version apparently, I am not sure about edits, or overdubs I'm afraid.

    I'll need to pull out my set, but I'm pretty sure the version on Elvis Aron Presley is the single master, so no spoken intro.

    For me, Elvis' recorded legacy basically sums up everything that I love about music.

    Some of it is meaningful. Some of it is fun, disposable fluff. Some of it is life-affirming. Some of it is simply thrilling.

    Some of it makes me happy when I listen to it. Some of it makes me less unhappy when I listen to it.

    Some of it makes me sit up and think about what I'm hearing, and how it might relate to (or reflect upon) my life. Some of it is simply pleasurable to listen to.

    There's not a single phase of Elvis' career that I would want to be without. Some are more consistently brilliant than others, but every era contains performances that resonate with me in one way or another, performances that I want to listen to over and over again. I doubt I'll ever find another artist that I love as much as Elvis, but that's fine with me: the recordings that he left behind are enough to last me a lifetime.

    Well done Shane and thanks for explaining the whole drug issues surrounding Elvis's voice in the last part of the 70's about as well as anybody ever has on this forum. Both you and @Revelator show that there are still examples when Elvis shows great power and range with his voice and right up to those last shows for Elvis In Concert. Elvis author Robert Matthew-Walker has also said that Elvis never really lost any of his great vocal range, right up to those last performances. Yes, his vocal ability could fluctuate dramatically and even day to day. Just listen to some of the range Elvis shows on Merry Christmas Baby in 1971 and compare it a another song from the same session on a slightly different day and you can hear a difference. No, Elvis's voice was not shot in 1977, and in many ways his actual vocal range and power were amazing for a 42 year old male singer, but clearly their were days when his pharmaceutical abuse affected his breathing as well as his overall vocal control dramatically. One needs to be able to notice the difference between those fluctuations in his vocal prowess to make an astute review of a particular song performance by Elvis.

    Once again, Dirk is able to say something so eloquently and beautiful that I will just highlight it, so other form members will be sure to take notice of it in the future. His statement simply and succinctly captures everything I feel about my love for the music Elvis made. I listen to new music almost every day in the great hope that I will one day find a voice or some music that touches me the same way Elvis's voice and music did so many year ago.

    Perfectly stated DirkM! Whether someone is touched deeply by Elvis' music or they think he's overrated, no one can credibly deny the influence he brought upon popular music. To this day, his influence is felt throughout popular music. Elvis paved a road into uncharted musical wilderness that is a beacon and a warning. The beacon of his style and talent has inspired so many great and not so great musicians to make music. The way that he was ensnared and consumed by the fame and fortune is a cautionary tale to any entertainer that may find great success. Elvis has permanently left his mark on music and entertainment!

    Reading these comments, this is the first time I really have ever even thought about why she left. I never construed it as anything sinister. But what if it was a misunderstanding, and he felt he needed to convey significant information to her that she truly didn't know?

  10. This sums up my feelings as well. Brilliantly stated Dirk, one of the best posts (out of many, many contenders) in this series of threads.

    I remember this commercial, even down to the obviously redubbed "$7.98" price. I think it went up in price once Elvis died.

    Oddly, I remember another commercial where the album shown was "Welcome To My World," but that was NOT the album they were selling in the ad. Does that ring any bells?

    Exactly, they are all (also the Close Up, Live In Las Vegas and Today Tomorrow And Forever box sets) around only 10-15€ for a boxset in the reissued format. An unbeatable price. That's why I bought the 50s/60s/70s sets in spite of having all the official albums before.
