Elvis' press conference held in the New York Hilton on the afternoon of 9 June 1972 has become the stuff of musical legend and folklore and remains not just his final press conference but one of the most frank and honest public appearances of his lifetime. The conference took place just hours before Elvis' first of four consecutive shows in the city's Madison Square Garden Arena. Much of the footage remained unreleased for many years apart from some excerpts seen in "This Is Elvis" but it's authenticity was depleted by the use of the overdubbing of actors' voices with the questions asked of Elvis and some of these were only paraphrases of the original questions. In 2012, as part of the "Prince From Another Planet" some of the video footage of this press conference was released officially by Sony but only half of the event was seen on the DVD. The audio of the press conference has never been released officially and as such some questions from the press core remain inaudible and many of the transcripts show some guesswork has taken place and even in parts where the sound is clear still have wildly inaccurate depictions of the questions. in this video I have tried to place subtitles over the parts which are difficult to understand and have written what I believe to be the questions being asked but in some points are too difficult to hear so in those cases I have just placed "inaudible".
