Loving You
Elvis Presley


Loving You is the third album by Elvis Presley, issued on RCA Records, LPM 1515, in July 1957, recorded at Radio Recorders and at the Paramount Recording Stage in Hollywood. It contains a combination of songs recorded for the film and previously released items, and spent ten weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. It preceded the film release by eight days.

The soundtrack includes five songs composed expressly for the movie, from the writers providing stock for the Colonel's publishing company, Hill and Range. Mostly functional as per the requirements of any musical, in this case they give Presley numbers to perform during the film. A sixth, "Don't Leave Me Now," was included on the album, intended for but not appearing in the movie.
