“The song lists and performances of the period Elvis On Tour bring something rare: a legend from the fifties who was working in the early seventies and who was still taking his audience to new places… The main band, including Ronnie Tutt, James Burton, Glen D. Hardin, Jerry Scheff, John Wilkinson, Charlie Hodge, Sweet Inspirations, JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, and an orchestra led by Joe Guercio, had reached a place where Elvis could inject spontaneity, allowing the arena shows to have a measure of the unexpected… 1972 was a year of one hundred and sixty-five performances. In Jorgensen’s words, it was a ‘career climax’ for him.
