Elvis wore his gold lame jacket (for the last time) and dark blue dress pants.
His fifteen-song set was an exquisite overview of his seven-year career to date, including his first single for Sun ("That's All Right"), his first single for RCA ("Heartbreak Hotel"), two back-to-back tracks from Elvis Is Back! ("Such A Night," "Reconsider Baby"), a song from His Hand In Mine, his superb gospel album released just a few months earlier ("Swing Down Sweet Chariot") and a bunch of chart-topping singles.

Every performance is filled with joy, humour and energy, and the band plays with great skill throughout.

Elvis would never again present such a vital, commercially-successful show, or confront a crowd as wild as any from the 1950s.

The show raised nearly $65,000 for the USS Arizona Memorial building fund, one of the biggest single private donations to the cause.
.................................................................
For those who couldn't be there, the first chance to hear this landmark event came 17 years later, around Christmas time 1978:
............................................................
Elvis' 1961 Hawaii Benefit Concert
was made avaialble to collectors on a collectable LP Record on Vinyl of this event .
.............................................................
The collectors album was a deluxe affair, with fold-out cover, 16 page booklet, custom labels and inner sleeve.
It was an amazing package, then and now.
...........................................................
RCA released a slightly longer, but less ornate, official version of the recording in 1980, as part of a massive box set:Elvis Aron Presley (RCA, 1980)
Aka- Silver Box Set - Comprising Of 8 LPS .
...........................................................
In 2011, both LP and CD versions are long out of print and are highly collectable -
I Own both versions on Lps and Cd In my collection
- Happy Hunting -
