Both times I remember being so confused and disappointed by the majority of tracks on both albums. Just was not the Elvis who had captured my attention, nor the voice that was unlike anything I'd ever heard before. A real shame.

It was a real shame. Seriously, it is hard to believe RCA put Elvis' biggest single in years on a compilation of movie tracks. Talk about confusing the record-buying public and selling the single's potential short.


It all gets back to "what were they thinking?"


Maybe, that their artist hadn't fulfilled his obligation to record an entirely new, strong studio album to follow up on the success of the single.

There was enough material for a such album from the 71/72 sessions.
Here's a possible track-list:

1- Burning Love
2- Separate Ways
3- Where Do I Go from Here?
4- For The Good Times
5- Fool
6- Love Me Love The Life I Lead
7- Always On My Mind
8- It's A Matter Of Time
9- It's Impossible
10- (That's What You Get) For Lovin' Me
11- Don't Think Twice It's All Right

This would have been a good album. Not great,but good. Definitely much better than Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies

Better than the compilation release, but little more than passable, IMO. If that had been released, I think we'd still be talking about a missed opportunity.

That's right! Are you a local then?

I only noticed last night that they've put a red and gold plaque outside the place.

Nice to meet you on here, mate.
