(Newser) – Close to 40 photographs of a jump-suited, cape-toting Elvis Presley rocking the house at Madison Square Garden in 1972 have surfaced and will be on display next month at Graceland in an exhibit entitled, "Elvis Jumpsuits: All Access." One of them already graces a Times Square billboard. A longtime official Garden photographer discovered the shots while sifting through old files, AP reports.

 "I just never really looked at the files until recently," said photographer George Kalinsky. "He was electrifying in his white jumpsuit, with his cape. He was humble, but he had an aura. Very few people have triple-X charisma, and Elvis was one."
