I remember more or less wearing it out especially the last track on side 2
Yes! I remember that. Burning Love, right? I can't really remember a lot of the other tracks even though I played the record all the time as a kid. US Male was one track I liked too. It had some movie tracks on it, if I remember correctly.

The first Elvis record i bought was also the US MALE!!
I remember it was in a rack by the checkout in my local food store!!
The track listing is-
WE'LL BE TOGETHER
IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
LET'S FORGET ABOUT THE STARS
MY LITTLE FRIEND
IF I'M A FOOL (FOR LOVING YOU)
I'LL TAKE LOVE
TODAY,TOMORROW AND FOREVER
LET'S BE FRIENDS
I played it so much ,even today if i'm listening to one of those songs on another cd i still expect the next song to be whatever is on that album!!!
I loved all those Camden/Pickwick albums.I suppose that's why most of us will always have a special place for Elvis' movie songs!!
Keep Rockin' ELVIS

I'm happy to say that RCA's "Elvis' Golden Records" (Vol. 1) did it for me, as well as New York City's Channel 7 (WABC-TV), which would have an "Elvis week" on the "4:30 Movie" in the afternoon.
But, yes, Camden played a role, too. For me, it was mainly Camden's "Pickwick" records and 8-tracks. All of the above mentioned were fun (especially "Almost in Love," "Let's Be Friends," "Flaming Star," "I Got Lucky," and particularly, the two-fer "Double Dynamite" - complete with a cover identical to the original Live New York / MSG concert! It had everything from "Burning Love" to "I'll Be There" to an elongated "Mama."
While some Camden / Pickwicks are border-line good releases, mostly, it's nostalgia that recommends these otherwise heavily flawed, even absurd releases.
