lt seemed a bizarre marketing strategy at the
time, and doubly so today. In 1972, "Burning Love" became Elvis'
biggest hit since "Suspicious Minds" some three years earlier, yet
it did not headline a full-price album of newly recorded songs;
rather, it headlined a budget album of often lackluster movie
recordings, some of them quite ancient. Rather than reissue that
original album with bonus titles, "Burning Love" has now been set in
the context of what Elvis was recording and performing at the time.
This is the album that should have been. (from the liner notes)
