The budget album released under the big hit title was pretty o.k. - remove about three negligible numbers and you've got a decent collection (including a powerful track that even the most supportive critics always seem to miss, "Tonight Is So Right For Love"). Anyway, this CD comes about 27 years later and contains more than enough for a great record - strong material, well produced, well performed. But we have to eliminate six tunes for the '72 album that shoulda been.
It's unusual to begin by listing these tracks which ofcourse stand alone mightily - the brilliant, patriotic "An American Trilogy", probably his best rendition, could have been saved for an *Inspirational* l.p., along with "The Impossible Dream", a compelling workout, which unfortunately reveals some small inconsistencies in Elvis' vocal. He may have bitten off more than he can chew on this soaring ballad. "Never Been To Spain" is one of Presley's best lesser-discussed set pieces but it would belong in a more typical, eclectic E. P. record at that time. "Hound Dog", "A Big Hunk...", and "Little Sister"/"Get Back" are engaging but also would belong elsewhere.
Now we are left with space for 12. And "Burning Love" would naturally lead off. It seems Elvis himself did not care much for the song or for singing it, but it became a late-career classic. The bass run at midsong is irresistible. Red West's ballad "Separate Ways" still sounds great, and still is Top Ten material. "I'm Leavin'" also missed the Top Ten slot it deserved. Perhaps the unusual "beat ballad" was...too unusual. It is a tribute to the man that he could effortlessly transform his own voice for the sake of the song. "It's A Matter Of Time" could be described in the same way - more commercial (in the Country-pop direction) but no off-hand B-side.

Until the mid-'90s, the great "Burnin' Love", Elvis' last top-ten hit, could only be found on the skimpy and misnamed _Gold Records, Volume 5_ or the utterly wasteful and wretched _Elvis Sings "Burning Love" and Hits From His Movies_. This compilation is designed to replace the later and represents the first concerted effort to compile all of his 1972 recordings on one CD. The concept alone warrants this collection four stars. The quality of the music, however, keeps this from being five stars.
For example, do we really need yet another one-minute throwaway live version of "Hound Dog"? What about "Little Sister" or "A Big Hunk O' Love"? The answer to all of these is a resounding "NO!" The other live tracks (all recorded in Feb. 1972) included in this collection benefit from the fact that they were relatively new to Elvis' set list at the time. This results in performances of "You Gave Me a Mountain", "Never Been to Spain", and "An American Trilogy" which are vastly superior to the later versions of these songs included on _Live at Madison Square Garden_ and _Aloha From Hawaii_.
As for studio cuts, they range from abolutely outstanding ("Burning Love", "It's Only Love", "Always on My Mind) to forgettable ("I'm Leavin'", "For the Good Times", "It's a Matter of Time")
At the time the studio tracks were cut, Elvis' personal life was in the embryonic stages of the downward slide which would finally end on August 16, 1977. Not the least of these problems was the fact that Elvis' marriage was in deep trouble.

The contents of Burning Love were originally scattered randomly on singles and as bonus tracks on various albums during 1972 and 1973. This is the album that RCA, Elvis' record company, should have released at the time. Elvis had scored a massive hit with Burning Love on the singles chart - RCA then decided to release a sub-standard collection of some of Elvis' 60s movie songs, plus Burning Love, on a release originally entitled "Burning Love And Hits From His Movies". An opportunity lost. In 1999 the record company finally released this album which collects live and studio performances from 1972. Aside from the superb title track, there are vocal performances that match anything else he recorded: Always On My Mind is the definitive recording (Elvis' emotional performance is clearly better than Willie Nelson's later ponderous cover version), while Seperate Ways and I'm Leavin' highlight Elvis' ability to get to the heart of a song like no other singer. In the 70s Elvis often rushed his 50s hits in concert but on this release he does an exciting version of A Big Hunk O' Love, originally a hit in 1959. Other highlights include You Gave Me A Mountain, which would become one of his signature songs, and the epic An American Trilogy.

Back in March of 1972, Elvis went into the recording studio and taped seven new songs. Seven songs isn't enough for an album, so there was never a proper album featuring the material from that recording session. Instead, the March '72 songs were released on various singles and "budget" albums. This CD brings all those songs together for the first time. Of course, seven songs still isn't enough for an album, so the CD is padded out with songs recorded live in Las Vegas in February of 1972. Plus, there are two songs that were recorded in May of 1971 included (good songs, but I'm not sure they really belong here). March of '72 produced Elvis' last big hit, "Burning Love", which is a great rocker. All the other songs he recorded at the session were ballads about love gone sour (obviously a personal topic to him at the time). These ballads are of a high quality, especially "Seperate Ways" and "Always on My Mind". As for the live Vegas material, it's enjoyable enough, but it includes a lot of the same songs he played over and over again live. Elvis fans should enjoy this CD.
