+ Elvis Concert Review 1969

An eye-witness review by Joan Gansky

... "The atmosphere throughout the entire hotel was nail-bitingly electric! It is difficult for me to describe and paint a true portrait of attending in person this unique occasion - Elvis' Return to Splendor LIVE in 1969 - but I'll try my best.  I want, and hope, you will understand the excitement of what has to be the pinnacle of Elvis' career to date!"

Joan Gansky was lucky because not only was she in the audience for Elvis' TV musical renaissance of the '68 NBC Special but she also saw Elvis at his most dynamic - first at his August 22nd 1969 Midnight Show and then the following night at his August 23rd Dinner Show.

Joan Gansky has written this insightful article for EIN in 2019, fifty years later, looking back at this special event from 1969 as well as providing her take on the new RCA vinyl album of the August 23rd Dinner Show.

We were so lucky because not only was I in the audience for Elvis' TV musical renaissance of the '68 NBC Special but together we also saw Elvis at his most dynamic 'Return To Splendor' first at his August 22nd 1969 Midnight Show (still not fully released) and then the following night at his August 23rd Dinner Show.

Joan Gansky has written this insightful article for EIN looking back at this special event from 1969 as well as providing her take on the new RCA vinyl album of the August 23rd Dinner Show.

It was incredible when I heard the news that RCA were about to release the 1969 Las Vegas performance that we had attended after all these years. We actually heard of this marvellous surprise nice and early as RCA had asked us if they could use Paul's photo of the marquee as the inner cover of the new double album.

That in itself was lucky as Paul was very fortunate to get the photo with his newish Pentax camera which he put on the roof of a car and clicked getting it with only one shot - and it worked!

Paul Gansky writes...

My very English Ford Cortina! It's maiden run was to Las Vegas, so we could inspect the International Hotel under construction.

It did not seem likely it would open on time. However, they had three or more crews working 24/7 and proved us wrong! But, only the lower 16 floors were ready for guests. 

Later that year, in November, we attended  Blood, Sweat and Tears concert in Santa Monica's Civic Auditorium. After, we were horrified to find our Cortina was broken into, and the 8-track tape player was stolen.

I was nervous - yet excited - to listen to this previously unreleased August 23rd concert we had attended - that has been sitting in the RCA vaults for fifty years!  Nervous, because those '69 Elvis concerts have remained some of the most special Elvis memories in my heart! So how would it be possible to live up to my expectations and memories?....

Fans often talk about the difference between Elvis' Midnight and Dinner shows, and to be honest we did notice that Elvis seemed more "into" the Midnight shows! In 1969 and subsequent visits we attended as many of the shows as we could but, if we had to make a choice (due to $$'s - or lack there of!), we would always attend the Midnight show, and in the following years, also the 3 a.m. shows (for $10 in the balcony) when they happened!!

Reviews often seem to imply that after the dinner was served the Showroom tables were being "tidied up" even as the show started!  But that is not my recollection. I actually remember feeling somewhat rushed by the table staff, so everything could be totally cleared away BEFORE the start of the show.  Even after the lights were turned down, it seemed we waited a few anxious minutes for the show to actually begin!  Maybe Elvis picked up this busy / hectic atmosphere in the showroom? Also, I think he realized that many in the audience were his fans - attending the late shows specifically to see HIM - not just for a Vegas "dinner and a show"! 

Joan and Paul Gansky ready for Las Vegas action in August 1969

We were so fortunate to have been in the audience for Elvis' first season of live performances at the International Hotel. As fans, we had only being able to see Elvis "sing" on a movie screen for so many years. 

This realization still takes my breath away - we were actually there in 1969, in the audience! A dream come true indeed!  Knowing Elvis looked incredible and his voice was perfection and he would throw himself body and soul into each performance in '69. This created extra excitement in my anticipation of finally hearing this recording of one of the shows we attended.

FIRST, I felt kind of melancholy and also in awe after listening to the new Vegas album.  Paul and I listened together and we talked over our feelings about it.  We both felt somewhat shocked at how much we had "forgotten" and the memories we held were different to the proof found right there on the record!


We have to keep in mind that 50 years have passed us by "in a flash"... Remember, during that time, that Paul and I saw Elvis many more times in Vegas (20+) and also on tour in Anaheim, Long Beach and Inglewood Forum California.  Also, we have seen the movies "That's The Way It Is" and "On Tour" too many times to count... along with a multitude of performance video clips on the internet.  So, with the passing of the years, all these "viewings" have had a huge impact on our collective memory cells!

The first thing that surprised us listening to the new album was how much "talking" Elvis did to the audience on this night. We remembered him talking and reminiscing yet on the first two sides of the new album Elvis seems to talk almost as much as he sang!

My observation is that because this album was recorded the 2nd night we went to see Elvis, it was probably over-shadowed in our memory by the very FIRST show we attended - seeing Elvis perform the night before. (please see my review from 1969 below)

Elvis' performance is sensational and so power-packed but listening to this new release, fifty years after the event, I was surprised to hear Elvis sing "Runaway" although I do recall seeing him perform it, but in my mind, it was later on in the '70's!  This is no doubt due to the fact that RCA saved it for the 1970 'On Stage' album. So not only did the new LP re-confirm that it was August '69  but my write-up did too when I re-read what I wrote all those years ago after listening to the new LP!

"Tiger Man" was another welcome thrill!  Actually, I was surprised there were such a number of songs that Elvis performed on the '68 Singer Presents show that were also on this August '69 album recording! i.e. Mystery Train / Tiger Man, Baby, What You Want Me To Do and Memories.

Mystery Train / Tiger Man proved to be the most interesting for me as I had absolutely no memory of him singing them back-to-back at this '69 show. Of course I do have an indelible memory of Elvis jamming with the guys on Tiger Man at the Burbank '68 rehearsals! Whenever I hear this track, my mind goes back and I see the Burbank session! Mystery Train is such an exciting original Sun track - a favorite, and one I listen to often. It does not disappoint from the original at all - in fact it sure stands up extremely well on this live performance recorded in '69! The addition of Tiger Man just enhances the pure magic and high energy! Elvis is "on fire" - obviously thoroughly enjoying performing this "song-duo" for his fans in the Las  Vegas audience! WOW!!!  I can't BELIEVE I don't recall this particular performance!?

On this Dinner Show I note that Elvis left out 'Funny How Time Slips Away' that I so enjoyed the previous night. Being there for this song on our first time seeing Elvis perform - it was pure magic for me...and I can only presume there was a moment of sadness that he did not sing it the following night. But, I can't say that I stayed sad long! I was so into just "being there" in the same room, breathing the same air, sleeping under the same roof - and Elvis IN PERSON AND ALIVE and singing..... right in front of me!

The live version of 'Funny How Time' would only be released on the Madison Square Garden album two years later and it is odd that I never really considered why it didn't get released on 'On Stage' the following year. I guess that I had my precious memories - and I just LOOKED FORWARD TO AND EAGERLY ACCEPTED EACH AND EVERY RCA release as issued. Only looking back do I realize how many careless mistakes were made!

In this newly released monologue Elvis mentions L.A. DJ Robert W Morgan. I loved to listen to "pop" radio back in the day and so I do remember Robert W. Morgan as a DJ on K-RTH F.M. (aka K-Earth) which focused on "oldies" at the time.  Yet, I don't specifically remember Robert W. as being a big Elvis fan?  He was a very popular DJ in the Los Angeles area, with a very recognizable voice - and I am sure many of the people in the audience in Vegas would have known his name! 

When most of the LA radio stations stopped playing Elvis (early '90's?) I then switched to listening to Country stations mostly but always continued to listen avidly to K-RTH D.J. Brian Beirne aka "Mr. Rock 'n Roll" who always has been a devoted Elvis fan and continued to play Elvis recordings and talked a lot about Elvis on his regular radio show! In the late '90s Brian used to hold a quiz every year and the winner would accompany him to Memphis for Tribute week!  Brian was also a guest speaker at Graceland.


There is always an emotion when listening to Elvis finish every recorded performance. But with regard to the finale I certainly do not like Elvis' voice being drowned out by audience noise, and for the concerts in Vegas, my memory is that the audience was well behaved (!) and saved their enthusiasm and appreciation until the end of each song. But on this particular recording, I was deeply involved in listening to "Can't Help Falling In Love With You" - which is a heartfelt version - yet it ends quite abruptly. The last notes, then nothing. I wanted more.. something, anything?! Maybe I was waiting for the roar of applause or even Al Dvorin (or whoever was "the voice" in '69) - suggesting we go buy Elvis souvenirs! 

So this left me more with some feeling of sadness as it was "the end", rather than being rejuvenated by hearing Elvis’  voice, humor and showmanship... and be left in a "happy place". .. as we always were after seeing him perform. ...

Listening to the new album it is amazing to realise that we were hearing the stunning 'Suspicious Minds' before it was even released. In my article I wrote soon after (see below) I happened to comment that I hoped it would make a Number One for Elvis.

"Now I excitedly must ponder - what are his future plans? - what is in store?! My dreams are for another No. 1 with "Suspicious Minds",  a personal appearance tour across the USA and a definite plan to perform in England. Can we now even dare hope for negotiations for Elvis to star in a good (worthy of his considerable talents) movie?!!!”

Looking back from 2019 I realise that two of my dreams - the U.S. Tour and Elvis’ Number 1 - came true. Fans sometimes question whether we could have asked more of Elvis and did all his dreams come true?

To be honest I am so eternally thankful for all the available music recordings and documentaries Elvis left for us to enjoy - and still more seem to become available every year... and I also love and appreciate (many of) his movies, too!  I do have times of feeling sadness, disappointment - even anger, when thinking of what could have been. Mostly due to mistakes made my others - mainly in not understanding Elvis' full potential as an artist and not giving him the chance to continue to grow in his life's work. 

Elvis needed new challenges and continued support and confirmation of his amazing talents. I think this approach to his career would not only have made my dreams come true, but fulfilled Elvis' own dreams for himself. I don't think we can begin to consider "expecting more from Elvis"  -  let's just keep in our thoughts the words to "Walk a Mile in my Shoes".. and happily delve into all the precious material we do have of Elvis to constantly enjoy and share now and forever!

I would add, that IN GENERAL (not this particular LP) I have found most CDs of Elvis' live shows do NOT really compare to seeing him perform in person. Songs like ‘Polk Salad Annie’, ‘Suspicious Minds’ come to mind.... just listening to them.... they cannot compare to seeing Elvis perform them LIVE. While Paul and I were listening to this album together, I would comment a number of times..."WHY IS THERE NO VIDEO?!!"  That continues to break my heart.

I do think that looking back tends to give one an entirely different perspective. In this case, we now know all too well what happened in Elvis' all-too-short career.  When I wrote the review, (at age 26) Elvis' life and future career possibilities seemed filled with such promise.

So, after hearing the record and also re-reading my article written at that time, my feelings were complicated. I felt sadness, but always so very thankful that I was "around and involved in everything Elvis" during his lifetime, and still am, today.

Below Joan Gansky's personal account of ELVIS in Vegas from 40 years ago!

Dressed in a chic black tunic and bell bottoms that matched his long but neatly combed black-tinted hair. Elvis Presley stepped onstage last week at the International Hotel in Las Vegas and launched into the driving beat of 'Blue Suede Shoes'.

The audience of 2,000, most of them over 30, roared and squealed in nostalgic appreciation. In spite of his updated look, Elvis hadn't changed at all in the nearly nine years since his last personal appearance.

Shaking, gyrating and quivering, he again proved himself worthy of his nickname, The Pelvis. Oozing the sullen sexuality that threw the America into a state of shock in the 50's, he groaned and swivelled through a medley of 'Jailhouse Rock,' 'Don't Be Cruel,' 'Heartbreak Hotel,' 'All Shook Up' and 'Hound Dog'.

It was hard to believe he was 34 and no longer 19 years old.

- As reported by Newsweek August 1969.

Super-fan Joan Gansky was also there to witness the rebirth of ELVIS LIVE.

A prelude - Joan Gansky's story
I was born in a small town in the English Midlands countryside. Elvis played a major part in my life since 1956. I can hardly recall there being no Elvis! I followed his career through the never-to-be-forgotten Picturegoer magazine days, and the beginnings of Elvis Monthly. In 1966 I sadly had to relinquish my Northamptonshire Branch Leadership of OEPFC  (Official Elvis Presley Fan Club) - only because I had decided to travel... to the USA!

- August 23, 1966 was my first day in America.
- August 18, 1967 was my first meeting with Elvis.
- June 1968 I attended the NBC television "Elvis Special" recording.
- August 22 1969 I saw Elvis on stage at the International Hotel in Las Vegas.

YES! My fiance and I were to attend a live Elvis performance -  Elvis on stage for almost 1 1/2 hours - in the elegant night-club surroundings of the grand International Hotel - surely a place truly fit for a KING!

An eye-witness review by Joan Williams (now Gansky) written in late August 1969  - 50 years ago!!

Earlier this year (1969) I wrote a report on a preliminary visit to Las Vegas when Paul and I went to check on the International Hotel being built, and I promised to write an article on my next visit.  I was planning to see a live Elvis performance in the elegant night-club inside this palatial International Hotel – surely a place truly fit for a KING!

August 22nd 1969 - An enormous stage, a magnificent 2,000 capacity audience, elegant ladies (all seemed fresh from the Beauty Parlor!) glamorously dressed in their finest gowns - pure excitement apparent in their sparkling eyes, many accompanied by their smartly suited escorts!

Certainly a few teenagers were present among the sophisticated crowd, but somehow the 25-40 year age group seemed to predominate.

The atmosphere throughout the entire hotel was nail-bitingly electric! It is difficult for me to describe and paint a true portrait of attending in person this unique occasion - but I'll try my best.  I want, and hope, you will understand the excitement of what has to be the pinnacle of Elvis' career to date!

For our very first show, we were a party of six (three couples) having reservations for the midnight cocktail show. My fiancé, Paul, was almost "first in line" at 7:40 p.m. - the first show was still in progress! While waiting in line, maybe to ease their own tension, people happily chatted to the strangers around them like they were old friends. What a variety of people had journeyed hundreds, even thousands of miles to see Elvis in person at last!  As these precious minutes ticked slowly by, the line of people grew, snaking alongside gambling tables and slot machines, around the Hotel's restaurants, longer and longer it stretched, eventually reaching way back to the foyer entrance! An amazing sight to behold!

At last the doors opened - it was a little after 10 p.m. How fascinating to observe the expressions on the bright faces of the first-house (dinner show) audience exiting the showroom. As one by one they slowly walked passed us, the incredible joy and excitement of what they had just experienced flowed among everyone! If there was a pensive, sad look on someone's face, then it could only mean that that person was simply reluctant to leave the showroom magic behind! They would gaze enviously at us - we became those lucky ones, who had yet to experience ELVIS - LIVE - in action!!

To our great joy and total surprise, after a small tip to the Maitre D, we were seated at a table at the foot of the stage! Then there was an arduous hour and a half wait for the show to commence! Each minute seemed an eternity.

My heart was thumping wildly in anticipation... I perched myself on the edge of my chair, nervously sipping my drink, yet unaware of the taste of it! I tried to absorb each and every split second, every moment in this room . . . my long held dreams had come to reality! Being an Elvis fan, living in England  through the late 1950's and early '60's, it seemed unbelievably far fetched to even consider the possibility of ever seeing Elvis perform live on stage in the USA or anywhere!

I vaguely recall the Sweet Inspirations perform - followed by a seemingly lengthy act by comedian Sammy Shore. The audience grew impatient. At last! The curtains closed. A pause.

A white shoe, a hand "peeked" round the curtain - now open - the thrill of a lifetime as Elvis simply stood there.

He smiled happily, looking far more dynamic than any photo I had ever seen of him! - attired in white, with a long sash (belt) and a splash of color in the red kerchief (scarf).

His long, black hair was neatly combed in inimitable "Elvis Style" . . . but not for long! - a wild rendition of Hound Dog and Jailhouse Rock soon took care of that!

He seemed to explode with life and energy with each and every song! What a truly magnificent performer! His humor seemed to bubble over as he chatted and joked back and forth, with his ever attentive audience clinging to his every word and move!

(Right:Elvis in his White Shoes & White Herringbone suit)

The Las Vegas crowd is a mighty critical audience to win over, but any tension that may have existed in the cool and somewhat impatient atmosphere during the comedian's set quickly melted away. Elvis held his audience enthralled - he had a complete connection with them, even from the stage.

At one point he sat on a stool and told us about "his side of the story" - mentioning that much had been said, but he wanted to clarify it all for us personally. He confirmed that his first record was for his personal use. He joked that people in his own town were even talking about him, saying "Who is he? . . . WHAT is he?!"!! He laughingly told us how he found himself in Hollywood "before I was ready for IT, or IT for ME!"

He talked of his few early TV appearances with the restriction on his movements, the necessary Tuxedo outfit on Steve Allen, and the hound dog he was forced to sing to! He briefly told of being drafted and laughingly said he was always finding himself in trouble, as he couldn't stop treating his rifle like a guitar and would "shoot up" the barracks at night"! and (possibly tongue in cheek) "they called me a squirrel, just out of the woods"!!!

He became so engrossed in talking about his past experiences that he had to be reminded by old friend Charlie Hodge (guitar player) to finish what he had begun to say! Elvis briefly listed a few movies he had made, and explained how these had become like a habit, but now he was back. He assured us he had missed performing for a LIVE audience so much, and couldn't wait to get out of his movie contracts, and get back on stage.

Elvis advised us that this actual show was being recorded that evening, to be released on an album shortly! Among some of the songs he performed were a selection of his early hits including Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Mystery Train, and Are You Lonesome Tonight (complete with spoken dialog). He paused to tell us how a particular favorite song of his was "one Del Shannon recorded back around 1927"!!!! - and performed "Runaway" - a completely new rendition, with Elvis' own special magical touch.

He also sang "a song from my TV Special, that didn't do too well" (?) - the beautiful Memories. A surprise song was the poignant Yesterday - followed by Hey Jude where he had some lucky females in ecstasy as he bent over the stage to their tables and kissed them!

One little boy received special attention, and Elvis gave him his kerchief (scarf). A young teenage girl from the back of the room cried that she wanted Elvis' water glass. He gave her one and also a kiss! - she scurried back to her seat - crying tears of joy!

Elvis then introduced some celebrities in the audience, Diane Ross, Pat Wayne and Michael Ansara. Elvis mentioned that he had made a movie with Michael's lovely wife (Barbara Eden in Flaming Star) and of course, Michael himself appeared in the (maybe best forgotten) Harem Holiday/Harum Scarum movie.

Just one of the many highlights for me, was Funny How Time Slips Away. There was a hushed silence and then the following avalanche of applause at the end of this beautiful number.


It was only to be surpassed by a masterful rendition of In the Ghetto - and the new spellbinding Suspicious Minds. The emotion Elvis poured into this is incomparable to anything I have ever experienced. He became completely involved . . . he not only threw himself body and soul into the song, but actually across the stage using his dynamic Karate movements in intense emotion. The beat grew stronger and that unmistakable powerful voice built up and totally enveloped the huge room. Then it was quiet, slowly he crouched, softly he whispered.

(EIN Note: 'Suspicious Minds' was not released until 4 days after this concert)

This time his velvet notes echoed around the huge showroom, caressing each of us, his awed audience. He received tumultuous applause and a deserving standing ovation.

Elvis closed his show with Can't Help Falling in Love with You - opening his arms and heart to the semi-dazed audience, knowing the show was over - yet they responded  in such a way that you could feel their tremendous love for this unique entertainer.


I know I am one of a small percentage of Elvis fans who found it possible to made the pilgrimage to Las Vegas for this epic Elvis event - his return to live performances after almost a decade. I hope that I have managed to paint a picture and convey -  even to a small degree - how truly exciting it was for all who were lucky enough to be there and share this incredible experience of a lifetime.

This was only a very brief but memorable visit to the fascinating ever alive Las Vegas, just 48 hours. We were lucky to see two performances the Midnight Show August 22nd and August 23rd the following night. Elvis completed his 4-week engagement there on Thursday last week. I had heard that Elvis was to stay longer and attend Nancy Sinatra's show opening there.

After we returned to Santa Monica, my fiancé and I thought it would be nice to drive up to Elvis' home in the Trousdale area of Los Angeles, to catch the breath-taking view, and maybe take a "night-time" photo of Elvis' home. It was a beautifully clear night, mild with a soft breeze.

When we arrived at the top of the hill and pulled close to the curb next to Elvis' home, I was taken by surprise to find a guard on duty at the gate. He chatted to us and was pleased to hear we had so enjoyed the Las Vegas show. He told us that we echoed the opinion of other lucky fans who had been to Vegas and then talked to him about it during the preceding 4 weeks!

We were happily chatting when, seemingly out of nowhere, a "long black limousine!" purred softly into the driveway right next to us. We looked down as it rolled slowly by and the gates automatically opened. I saw a blur of faces. I hardly dared to stare, but there was no mistaking those twinkling blue eyes and the face that turned around and gazed at us out of the back window! - Elvis! - he was accompanied by his lovely wife, and beaming father, and two close friends! He had arrived home from Las Vegas!

Our eyes peered anxiously after the car, into the blackness of this enchanted night - our gaze following down the curving driveway - searching, straining to catch another glimpse of Elvis!

A tall dark figure climbed out of the car, Elvis was wearing black (probably a Western type outfit) and a wide striped belt. He stretched, tossed his head and waved to us a couple of times. He then flung his light colored jacket across his right shoulder (an inimitable Elvis mannerism!). Another quick wave, and was it my imagination? - or did I see a large yawn!??? Another wave, and he disappeared through the open door, safely inside his peaceful home.

We waited a few minutes, everything was so quiet and still, even the waterfall-fountain ceased to flow. Elvis was home with his wife, child and father. He is certainly due for a well-deserved vacation and complete rest.

Now I excitedly must ponder - what are his future plans? - what is in store?! My dreams are for another No. 1 with "Suspicious Minds",  a personal appearance tour across the USA and a definite plan to perform in England. Can we now even dare hope for negotiations for Elvis to star in a good (worthy of his considerable talents) movie?!!!
