While not, strictly speaking, a reissue, this collection brings together Elvis's last Top 10 hit (the title track) with other songs from the early '70s, plus some previously unreleased gems. Ironically, "Burning Love" was never available on a "proper" Elvis album--it was stuck on a budget-priced album in the '70s with some less-than-memorable songs from Elvis's movies. BURNING LOVE is the great early-'70s album that never was. The King is in fine vocal form throughout, still capable of inserting dark, animalistic growls into "Hound Dog" and the previously unissued medley of "Little Sister" and the Beatles' "Get Back." Elvis brings a real intensity to pop standards "For the Good Times" and "It's Impossible." The gem here is "I'm Leavin'," with its unusual melodic construction and haunted, possessed vocal.
Elvis was going through a divorce at the time many of these songs were recorded. This isn't Elvis the rocker, though he does rock; this is Elvis the singer, the elder statesman of his craft. Though he was playing Las Vegas regularly, he hadn't totally "gone Vegas"--Elvis was still belting it out with soul, and he crooned with conviction.
