They both send shivers down my spine every single time I listen to or watch them.
I hope you love them as much as I do!
I never, never, understood why any sane person would qualify anything from the CBS shows as "two of my favorite performances" or state "they send shivers down my spine every single time I watch them" ...
What the CBS tapes show us, is a very sick man. A man who's dying. A man who is completely out of touch with reality, completely out of touch with himself. A man who has become a caricature of himself and who looks even worse than the most horrible jumpsuiting Elvis imitator you've ever seen. A man who has no strength left and who has clearly given up on life.
Watching Elvis like this, sends shivers down your spine???
Seeing Elvis in that terrible state sends tears down my face.
