Elvis On Stage is a hard cover book with full-color Elvis photos, taken by the author when attending Elvis Presley shows. Most of the Elvis photos were taken on tour, because in Las Vegas no cameras were allowed. The book is very well done and contains good shots of Elvis on stage starting from 1973 to 1977.
The concerts include:
July 3, 1973 Atlanta, Georgia (last time when Elvis wore a cape)
June 26, 1974 Louisville, Kentucky

So, as you can see 30 different concerts in total. The most interesting photo, to my mind is from December 30, 1976 Atlanta, Georgia. Needless to say that this was a great show, but the photo captures Elvis Presley with a real and not "showmaking" face - he is surprised with something.
Other interesting shot is from March 20, 1976 Charlotte, North Carolina. Elvis stands in his famous pose singing Polk Salad Annie and we can see his black (!!!) tongue. He just took some drug to go through this song and it colored his tongue in black. His face is terrible.
Too bad that only 2 backstage photos are presented. The reason for this is probably that the author is not an official Elvis photographer and he had no chance to get close to his idol. However, this candids are from 1977 (June 1 and June 26) which are rather rare, so thanks for them either.
Anyway, this is a high quality product and is recommended to everybody!
