"September 27, 1974 was the opening night of his fall tour and it began in College Park, Maryland. He would perform two shows on two different nights, and for years it would rumored that both of these shows had been the worse performances Elvis ever gave on stage up to that point. Stein Eric Skar, of Elvis: The Concert Years noted a story of Elvis arriving to College park, that he simply fell out of the car. "Lying on the ground he refused help from any, and from here he struggled to the stage." This concert can be heard in its entirety now with the import Chaos in College Park.
As the opening rift blasted thru the arena, it was like every other Elvis concert. Everybody went crazy, and was excited to see the man himself, but according to Geoff The Chef in the "Chaos In College Park" album jacket, Elvis "was visibly struggling as he entered the stage ... Right from the get-go, the musicians on stage noticed that something was wrong. Elvis' vocals were weak and lackluster, and his delivery lacked focus and power." There was no joy, no excitement, and it appeared that he was struggling and sometimes out of tune. It had to been the first time Elvis truly did a bad version of "See See Rider" that had no redeeming value. Ignoring the fact that the band completely missed the timing at the end, the audience gave a loud ovation as if it was the greatest performance ever. There was too much going on with Elvis Presley in 1974 involving his ego, drug use, and now fans were cheering him after singing horribly.
While "Big Boss Man" started out as a fairly preformed piece of music, Elvis would crash during the second half of the song by flubbing lines during the second verse and then during the final refrain just threw out weird noises. The fans still cheered, but the rendition ended in a horrible fashion. The audience member near the tape source seemed to say something about Elvis looked like he was "going to go over." Most reported he hanged on the microphone for dear life the entire show, as if he was going to fall off the stage. Elvis decided to do the "Hawaiian Wedding Song," with the exception of a joking falsetto and stopping singing when he'd forgot the words."

Where did I copy this article from?

You would've been one of those people in that audience that were cheering madly as Elvis forgot lyrics and clung to his microphone like he was about to fall over, wouldn't you octo?

I have an incomplete audience recording of College Park on September 27th 1974. Actually, what is on the CD is awesome and Elvis is clear as a bell. The CD captured most of the show up until the band introductions. I also have the next night in College Park, only this time...it is a soundboard. In that show, it's obvious Elvis was trashed but did not forget one word. He was actually very funny because he talked about the media saying that he had a pouch and he said he had to wear a bullet proof vest. Elvis also talked about playboy bunnies following him around in a jet plane. Already know what was written about College Park. Yet, Elvis still had a sense of humor. He didn't have to be perfect.

One of my friends was at that show on the 28th. Everybody knows that it wasn't a good show. I don't have to goggle shit to try and score points. I've had the recordings for years. Elvis changed nightly, tour to tour, engagement to engagement. And obviously, the story of him forgeting words in College Park is also a fabrication. He was stoned off his ass but he did every song without missing a key. Elvis just mumbled here and there and sounded tied. But his dialogue made up for it. A very revealing concert.

A floon would never admit to their hero having faults. I admit that Elvis had a drug problem. Yet, Beatle floons believe that their little British Invasion band was perfect at all times. Simply not the case. Elvis did thousands of shows and not all of them could be good ones. But when he was on target, he was great. Otherwise, why did the fans keep showing up to his concerts? Don't be a moron, Kracker. If Elvis wasn't that good, I certainly wouldn't bother seeking out more concert recordings and studio outtakes on imports. I can read a bad review and listen to the show myself and decide. A lot of times the bad reviews were bullshit.

Besides you, I mean.
Now the way a man chooses to live his life, THAT matters!!
Elvis had joint custody of Lisa Marie. I'm sure if Linda Thompson or Ginger Alden was ever mean or rude to his daughter, Elvis would have dumped them in a heartbeat. Yet, John Lennon ignored his son Julian because Yoko did not like him. So, that is how John Lennon chose to live his life? Elvis willingly paid his ex wife and paid his child support for Lisa Marie. And he saw her regularly. It was because he loved her. She was his kid. That matters.

It is very simple, Kracker...

You made the comment that it matters how a man chooses to live his life.

Elvis took care of his family and friends and never once complained about it. He worked all the time, always paid his bills and was never in debt.

Those are all honorable things.

All John Lennon cared about was Yoko.

He wrote songs about the homewrecking witch.

Julian was his kid. He should've been more important to him then Yoko Ono, right? After all, Julian was his flesh and blood.

Your original comment was that Jina Wild was going to chew my ass about my derogatory comments about John Lennon. And then you made the laughable mistake of claiming that John Lennon lived a more respectful lifestyle than Elvis, which certainly is not true. Like I said before, Elvis took care of his family and friends, paid his bills, worked his ass off, gave his money to help people in need and never did music that praised drug use. His stuff was truly about having fun and/or about peace and love. Elvis made beautiful music and did what he was supposed to do, which was entertaining his fanbase. You seem to confuse John Lennon's angry anti-war, anti-American rants as something that was positive. But in reality, it did not do anything to make the world better. After all, Mark David Chapman was a Beatle fan and he still killed his artist. So, I take it that MDC didn't "Imagine" and certainly did not "Give Peace A Chance" Of course, then you have the little problem of Charlie Manson and his followers using The Beatles White Album as some kind of sick message of a superior race and a springboard to murder innocent people while on acid. Again, where is the peace and love?

And then you have the dirt bag, Phil Spector that worked with The Beatles, George Harrison and John Lennon. Spector later shot and killed a woman in his house. As far as I know, Phil Spector never got punished. Where is the peace and love? Phil Spector still talks of The Beatles. Apparently, the message did not sink in to his demended little brain.

Hey Mo, did you ever answer my question?

You’d probably be one of those fanatics in the audience cheering madly over a song Elvis was just making strange grunting noises to, wouldn’t you?

We owe it him, people!!

THE KING has graced us with his royal presence!!!
