Mahalo From Elvis is a compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, released posthumously in 1978.


Side one consists of five previously unissued tracks Presley recorded in Honolulu on January 14, 1973 for inclusion in the U.S.-version of the live concert TV special Aloha from Hawaii (these tracks were, in fact, recorded after the audience left the building when the concert had finished, therefore they are not considered as "live" recordings). The recording of No More, however, was not used in the special. All songs on side two were previously issued recordings originating from various Presley movie soundtracks in the 1960s, it was certified Gold on 9/15/2011 by the RIAA. The album was assembled by Pickwick Records by arrangement with RCA Records, who leased Pickwick the rights to reissue certain Elvis recordings previously issued on the budget RCA Camden label.
