LIVE AT THE SAHARA TAHOE [book]




Sue McCasland / Joseph A. Krein.
2012.


You were allowed to take pictures during concerts when Elvis was on tour, but during the engagements at Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe it was prohibited. Sue McCasland was among the very few fans who were able to take pictures. There was a much more intimate atmosphere in Tahoe, because of a smaller showroom, so the risk was higher to get caught while sneaking cameras into the showroom and taking pictures during the concert. With that knowledge, one can appreciate the value of Sue's photos - a real treasure, so to say. And fortunately, Sue has decided to share her personal treasure with us.

Why is Lake Tahoe such an enigma?
All existing information is based on vague reports, second hand word of mouth and Lake Tahoe memorabilia remains the rarest and most sought after in the Elvis World. It is inexplicable why there is such a vast amount of material about Las Vegas, but close to nothing exists about Lake Tahoe.
Thousands of photos are known documenting Elvis' engagements in Las Vegas. But in contrast, there were engagements in Lake Tahoe where nearly nothing is known - only a handful of pictures and a few reports.
Such a mystery that Ed Bonja, who was Elvis' tour photographer and responsible for nearly all covershots of singles and LPs of the 70s, names the book 'World's Best Kept Secret'.


Many thanks to Rafael.

  9. Additional Info About The Lake Tahoe Shows
    Even tho Ed Bonja may have stated that this was "A World's Kept Secret"- the Tahoe shows were a second income to Elvis who made a good wage playing at Del Webb's hotel in Tahoe
    He started in July '71 whilst playing at the International Hotel .this venue was across the Stateline
    Elvis shows here were more relaxed than at Vegas where he had to do twice nightly shows
    At Lake Tahoe he did some great shows and even 3:am shows to accommodate the fans who ventured from afar to see him perform
    There's not any footage to date if these shows and there are a few shows from '71 ,74 and '76 that do exist on cds and a few photographs that were taken by fans
    These shows were great in the knowledge that Elvis would and did embrace this challenge with open arms and he did his utmost best on the shows
    However especially during the mud seventies at Lake Tahoe in '74 there were a few issues from his security guys such as Red West and company that nearly got "hot under their collars" so to speak - among fans who wanted to get close to Elvis at Lake Tahoe and On Tour. Their behaviour towards certain fans displeased Elvis when he heard about it and words were said - And Elvis nearly faced alimony charges due to this
    Elvis career was on a good path : despite his health as he put weight on and lost it during this time
    Enjoy the info and this book
    Hoping to see more books like this in future especially from FTD and such if possible
    Many thanks
