Elvis Presley : Vail, Colorado : January, 1976

January 4, On the spur of the moment Elvis decides to fly to Colorado for a vacation. After checking into a Denver Hotel, Elvis dispatches Joe Esposito and two Denver Police officers, Jerry Kennedy and Ron Pietrafeso to Vail to find enough rental accommodation for the group.

January 8, Elvis spends the evening of his 41st birthday in a rental home on the slopes of Vail Colorado. with Jerry Schilling and Myrna Smith, who have been living together for more than a year and will eventually marry.

Many of the guys and their wives and girlfriends have been taking skiing lessons, but Elvis wears a full face Ski mask during the day but mostly only appears on the slopes at night in a rented ski mobile, causing eighteen-year old Susan Ford, daughter of the President to protest his violation of local regulations.

The Lone Ranger

After a skiing accident at Vail Colorado, with Dr.Nick's (George Nichopoulos) son Dean needing medical attention, Elvis, Dr Nick and Dean went to the local hospital. (Date unknown).

George Nichopoulos: 'Finally we arrived at the hospital. I pulled out my Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance card with Elvis Presley Enterprises printed on it and handed it to the busy receptionist.

She must have thought she was being cute, 'cause she smirked back, 'Yeah. So where's Elvis?'

Still wearing his ski mask, Elvis looked all around, left and right, up and down; then he answered mischievously, 'He's here ... somewhere', 'And who are you?' the receptionist shot back. 'The Lone Ranger', Elvis replied matter-of-factly. But she had already returned to her paperwork, paying no attention to the silly masked man. (X-rays showed Dean's knee was badly sprained and bruised with contusions.

From the book: The King and Dr. Nick by George Nichopoulos.

January 14, As a thank you gesture to his friends on the force, Elvis purchases two Lincolns and a Cadillac for Jerry Kennedy, Ron Pietrafeso and police surgeon Gerald Starkey, along with Cadillacs for Linda Thompson and Joe Esposito's girlfriend, Shirley Dieu. In all the bill comes to $70,000.

January 20, In reporting the story of Elvis generosity to his police friends it is said that Denver television newsman Don Kinney jokes on air that he'd like a car, too and that Elvis buys him a Seville. 'Elvis, if you're watching - I wouldn't mind getting a car too.' Don Kinney contradicts this and tells his story.

CD The Jungle Room Sessions FTD CD

Since the FTD CD series began it has given us the chance to hear some classic unreleased Elvis Presley material but none more essential that their fourth release 'The Jungle Room Sessions'. After 'The Jungle Room Sessions' the majority of the original releases on 'Moody Blue' and 'From E.P Boulevard' now sound so disappointing. Of all the Elvis Presley CDs produced by the FTD team this is the one you must have, whether you are a fan of 70's Elvis or not. This truly is an astounding packed 72 minutes of essential listening that is also an amazing documentary capturing some extraordinary moments of Elvis' life. >> More Elvis Alternate Take CDs.

Elvis Presley Video Video Preview: Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered Unreleased Film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don’t Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. This is an excellent release no fan should be without it. The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people.

We love Elvis Presley !!!!!!!! : So ... Stop, look and listen baby that's our philosophy ... First thing in the morning, last thing at night ... look, stare everywhere and see everything inside ... Stop, look and listen!
