Arthur Alexander's original recording of "Burning Love" was first released on his epomynous LP in February 1972. It is therefore very likely that Alexander recorded the track in 1971, but I have been unable to find an exact date for the recording. Author Dennis Linde recorded his own version of this number in 1973. J. D. Sumner and The Stamps to provide backing vocals on Elvis's recording of Burning Love. This was the first time that Elvis used this group in the stduio, though he had admired them since before himself becoming a star and had already performed with them on stage. Note that the version on "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits" is indicated as being a "mixed and mastered" version, so presumably it is based on the original single take, despite the fact that it is six seconds longer...
