CBS Special Presentation: Elvis in Concert (1977)

Old video, but very awesome.

Why Elvis and the Col. agreed to do this show so late in the game is beyond me. Had Elvis not died prior to the airing of the show, I am sure that the career ramifications would have been devastating to him. This special, cobbled together (very poorly by CBS) from two terrible concerts in June of 1977, would have likely ended Elvis' career as he then knew it. Of course, it might have led to a stint in rehab once it became clear to the entire nation that Elvis Presley was in serious trouble.

CBS could have easily edited a much better mix of material had they had any respect for Elvis' music.
