When was this song recorded? It is one of my favorites. I was thinking 74?

What a great tune ...

This song was recorded at "Stax" studios in Memphis, Tennessee on December 13, 1973.

It was also included in Elvis' Lp, GOOD TIMES, released in March of 1974.

You were close !!! LOL

Hope this helps ...

As have I. That and Goodtime Charlie's Got The Blues, recorded the same day, are among the best ever in my opinion. Though I love listening to alternate takes, the masters of these two songs are impeccable and pure Elvis magic.

"Dreaming of the arms that held me tight..."

Holy canoli, that is some serious singing.

Don't forget the version Felton Jarvis re did for the Guitar Man/To Much Monkey Business releases.I think this one works well with the new backing

Agreed! That's definitely one of the remixes Felton did that really works.
