“Loving You” by Elvis Presley - album review

TJR says

Arriving in July were both the second Elvis film and the third Elvis album – “Loving You” was his first soundtrack LP and it gave him his third straight number one on the album charts. The title-track was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller who would prove to have a big role to play in the Elvis story in the period which immediately followed, although, on the evidence of the track in question, the artist was displaying early signs of middle of the road tendencies. The bounce back to credibility was immediate with the fabulous “Got A Lot Of Livin’ To Do” getting me back onside. Side 1 featured 7 songs which were featured in the movie itself, whilst side 2 added 5 unrelated tracks including two of the best on the album – the bluesy ballads “Blueberry Hill” and “Don’t Leave Me Now”.
