Elvis : Live at Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe - 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'.

Among the fascinating photos there are stories by fans
Among the fascinating photos there are stories by fans who share their memories of the moments with Elvis.

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 the world. Almost every existing photo of Elvis' performances in Tahoe from 1971-1976 has been tracked down and restored for the use in combination with historical information in this visual experience. You will see Elvis in a great mood, smiling, entertaining the audience and enjoying the moments where there is interaction with the audience. See him wearing a gorilla mask, see him having fun with Mickey Mouse ears, see him kissing his female fans, singing spontaneously rare versions of 'Young and Beautiful', 'Return To Sender' or an exclusive rendition of 'Happy Birthday' and witness the moment where Elvis gets caught in a water pistol fight. It's amazing!

An excerpt of the 'Tahoe '76 Engagement' – chapter - Never before seen photos with complementary items.

The photos are real gems and one of the biggest surprises is the collection of more than two dozen shots from October 1974 showing Elvis in the Sundial suit. The myth that this suit was only worn in 1977 comes now to an end, definitely. That's one of the reasons why this book is call a 'definitive book'.

Different perspectives, different angles and a vast collection of different stage outfits portray Elvis on stage. Complementary items like tickets, newspaper articles, reviews, advertisements, banners, posters, menus, napkins, ashtrays, dice, casino memorabilia, postcards and a lot more.

This book will definitely provide you information and shots you have never seen before and present you the most comprehensive photo collection of Elvis' performances in Lake Tahoe.
