October 21, 1975
Elvis had contractual commitments to RCA and the Colonel had come up with several ideas to fulfill these.
A collection of movie title tracks, an album especially for children and so forth. RCA had not yet responded to any of his suggestions, so now the Colonel went to RCA with a telegram from Elvis:
" I would like to work on an album for early '76 release, where I would do a combination, part conventional and part live from Las Vegas, during my Dec. 2-15 engagement. This would give a much better flavor with all the new material. Best regards, Elvis"
Nothing came from this suggestion.

After a stay of almost 3 months in a veterinary hospital in West Boston, Elvis' chow returned home.
