On January 26, 1972 Elvis kicked off his now customary late winter Las Vegas season with the usual mixture of old favourites and newer material. As a number of songs had been added to Elvis' stage repertoire that he had yet to record in the studio, RCA's mobile recording unit arrived at the Hilton Hotel in mid February, and recording commenced on February 14th through February 17th.
Two of the songs recorded by RCA, namely, "It's Impossible" and "It's Over" had been introduced into Elvis' stage act during his previous two Las Vegas seasons in 1971. "It's Impossible" had actually replaced "Can't Help Falling In Love" as Elvis' closing song during his first Las Vegas season of the previous year, and was obviously a favourite of Elvis', who was considering the song for a future single release. "It's Over" (not the Roy Orbison song), like most of the other new songs Elvis' had added to his stage repertoire documented the break up of a relationship, and was indicative of his own personal situation at the time.
The Marty Robbins hit "You Gave Me A Mountain" fitted into the same genre, whilst the Perry Como hit "It's Impossible", was also given sombre treatment from Elvis. The more contemporary "Never Been To Spain", a hit for Three Dog Night, was also covered in fine style, along with Mickey Newbury's "An American Trilogy", which was basically a new arrangement of "Dixie", "All My Trials", and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" that the patriot in Elvis identified with strongly. The song was beautifully performed during this Las Vegas season, and went on to become the centrepiece of many Presley concerts during the '70's.
Although the majority of the songs recorded by RCA were of a reflective, and personal nature, the performances couldn't be faulted, and RCA captured Elvis in fine voice.

In my opinion a very well thought out CD with a few suprises like Get Back & Where do I go from here.It was a real treat to listen to not just speaking as a long life fan of the great man but if your just discovering his music then this is a particularly good album to choose as I think he was at his best in the early Vegas years. My particular favourites on the album are Never Been To Spain, Its only love, Seperate Ways and of course An American Trilogy all sung with so much passion and power.
Enjoy- Dave Chapman

Along with 'For The Asking' and 'Tomorrow is a Long Time', the 'Burning Love' CD is another album that should have been.
Why RCA released an album of hits from Elvis films coupled with Burning Love is still a mystery. Although it sold a million copies in America alone; this only encouraged a similar follow-up with Seperate Ways as the lead track on a similar album??????????
The songs that Elvis recorded in 1971 and 1972 that could have made a great album. Aside from the legendary hits, Burning Love #2 in America and a million plus sold, Seperate ways#20 in America and over 500,000 sold; the music is generallt excellent.
The best song, including the afforementioned hits is 'I'm Leavin', this marvellous folkish/ballad is outstanding yet it failed to crack the top 30.
For The Good Times is excellent, the Kris Kristofferson song is performed gently by Elvis, and definately one of the very best recordings of this song.
It's Only Love was Elvis last top 10 hit in the UK, reaching #3 in 1980....its Ok, hardly a great song, although an alternate on Essential Elvis 4 is stunning, quite different is more committed and could be a hit alln over again.
The live tracks here are exceptional, recorded in Vegas in 1972: An American Trilogy is now legendary, a huge hit in Britain in 72 and a stage highlight.
Its Impossible and Its Over are huge dramatic ballads, performed only as the King could.
A Big Hunk O Love really rocks, as fast as the original plus some superb electric guitar licks from James Burton
Burning Love is an excellent addition to any collection.

This indeed might or might not be the album that was going to be released back in 1972. I'm bound to ask who cares though? Regardless of that fact, it isn't any good and neither would it have been had it been released back then.

Today this is just another excuse to compile yet another sloppily put together album for the record companies to drain more money out of the pockets of the weak willed die-hard fans.

All this material is available elsewhere, in some cases on officially released albums made during Presley's lifetime. So why bother? I also think the original concept was greatly flawed anyway (putting live and studio material mixed up together) and that is why they buried it in favour of the all-live release AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. By this point, Presley's interest in his own releases was on the wain.

And before anyone retorts that the album That's The Way It Is also contained a mix of material, I would remind readers that the production and song stylings was consistent between the two lots of recordings on that release with much better integration. I do not consider that 4 live tracks out of 12 made an uneasy battle between live and studio either. But come on, a live throwaway Hound Dog sitting beside the studio recording of Separate Ways? Elvis must be turning in his grave by now. It's shameful exploitation.
