other recording: Dick Brown


Having succeded Frank Sinatra in both the Harry James and the Tommy Dorsey orchestras, Dick Haymes went solo and turned to acting as well as singing. This number comes from a film of the same name in which he played. Elvis recorded the number first in 1966, but rerecorded it in 1970 (in the early hours of the morning of 8 June). The second recording was made more or less as a favour to pianist David Briggs, who thought he could improve on his earlier performance. Perhaps he did, but Elvis failed to match the simple charm of his 1966 recording.




Love Letters

Dick haymes



Love letters straight from your heart,
Keep us so near while apart,
I'm not alone in the night,
When I can have all the love you write,

I memorize every line,
I kiss the name that you sign,
And darling,then I read,again right from the start,
Love letters straight from your heart.

I memorize every line,
I kiss the name that you sign,
And darling,then I read,again right from the start,
Love letters straight from your heart.

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize ev'ry line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And darlin, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight,from your heart.

I memorize ev'ry line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And darlin, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight,from your heart.
