Elvis 1977

I ran across this video of Elvis in concert near the end of his life.  His stage presence was in shambles but his pipes were still strong.  I think it is a sad video.  At the very end of the video the audio does not sync up with Elvis's mouth movements.  It would appear that perhaps someone tried to do the King a favor by dubbing in a better finish than was presented live that night....

This was Rapid City, South Dakota on June 21, 1977.  He gave his last performance five days later. 

"His body was falling apart, but his voice remained almost as powerful as ever.  Without any doubt, it's the last great moment of his career", said Rolling Stone Magazine.

Elvis died August 16, 1977.
