This photograph has  been taken at the August 12th 1970 midnight show. That night Elvis took his Gretsch electric guitar, sat on a stool and sang  in this order : Little Sister/Get Back (released first on the Elvis Aron Presley box-set), I Was The One (released on the BMG '70S box-set), Love Me and Are You Lonesome Tonight ?. This show has been released during the Summer of 2000 by BMG on the triple CD set " That's The Way it Is - Special Edition ".

The above songs were filmed by MGM, in fact they belong to the show where Elvis sings : Polk Salad Annie, One Night, Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Suspicious Minds, All Shook Up,etc...in the movie T.T.W.I.I. Elvis has performed these songs at the guitar right after " All Shook Up ",but obviously they weren't included in the movie or neither in " Lost Performances " video. The Special Edition of T.T.W.I.I. had " Are You Lonesome Tonight ? " included during the closing credits but removed later on for copyright reasons.
