RCA did not record either of the New Year concerts because at the time, we had been overloaded with live LPs, five in as many years, plus the half live "That's The Way It Is" LP. Fans were complaining about the amount of them, especially after the 1974 Memphis album which appeared to tip people over the edge. As for the Madison Square Garden concert, it was not filmed (other than the first few minutes by a news crew) because "Elvis On Tour" had been filmed just a few weeks before. The "Aloha From Hawaii" concert was delayed by two months because MGM complained that it would clash with the releases of their film. When people wonder why so few concerts were filmed, they should remember that this was before the home video market and an outlet for them.

As for a Christmas TV special, obviously that is what was planned in 1968. The idea changed because neither Elvis nor Steve Binder wanted to do a special filled with Christmas songs, mainly because that is what everybody else was doing. As for Colonel Parker not being able to find a sponsor for a follow up show, that is pure speculation. There is no evidence to support that theory, or indeed, story behind it.
