Like Elvis's My Way better than Sinatra. Saw in a doc recently about his inner circle that he resented having to get on stage in his final years but he and his manager had big debts and he never did a big money making overseas tour. In fact he never did any overseas tour. Was supposed to start a new series of performances starting on August 17th 1977 but died the day before
Wasn't his doing hardly any overseas stuff down to Parker?

Yes.

Parker moved to the US from Holland but never took up citizenship and never went back to Holland apparently due to a possible criminal offence he was involved in. He had huge offers put forward for Elvis to go overseas which Elvis was interested in but Parker would knock them back saying they were low ball offers. That wasn't true and Elvis's dad was suspicious and told his son to get a new manager. Never happened.

Also partly due to Elvis spending the 1960s trying to crack Hollywood but his movies weren't too successful and he was never really given serious roles or scripts. The Beatles came along and stole his thunder with the young, largely female audience.

Enjoy listening to the full album when I'm out running/cycling in the night. Puts me completely at peace
