On Stage is an Elvis Presley live album mostly recorded between February 17 and 19, 1970 at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, and released on RCA Records LSP-4362. It was an immediate follow up to From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis, which also featured live recordings. Unlike the previous release, however, this album focused on songs that were not, at the time, associated with Elvis. This album was released in June 1970 and reached number 13 on both the Billboard 200 and country music charts. It was certified Gold on February 23, 1971, and Platinum on July 15, 1999, by the Recording Industry Association of America.
It features the worldwide number one single “The Wonder of You”, which topped both the United States Adult Contemporary tracks chart and the British music chart. Other selections include “See See Rider”, “Yesterday”, Tony Joe White’s “Polk Salad Annie”, Del Shannon’s “Runaway”, and a version of “Let It Be Me”. “See See Rider” would go on to become Elvis’ frequent introductory number at his concerts up to his last performance at the (now defunct) Market Square Arena in Indianapolis Indiana on June 26, 1977, while “Polk Salad Annie” also became a regular part of his repertoire. The album is notable for not showing Elvis’ name anywhere on the cover.
