Burning Love and Hits from His Movies, Volume 2 is a compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley. The album was released on November 1, 1972 on the budget label, RCA Camden.[1] The contents of the album consist primarily of soundtrack recordings from various Presley films of the 1960s, augmented by both sides of his 1972 hit single, "Burning Love". This was unusual, as Presley's recordings were generally issued by RCA on the standard Victor label, and not their budget Camden subsidiary. The experiment was repeated a month later with the RCA Camden release of a similar compilation album Separate Ways, which also featured a recent chart hit leading a collection of older, non-hit soundtrack recordings.[2] Upon its release, it reached number 22 on the Billboard chart. In the mid 1970s, RCA Records leased the rights to reissue certain RCA Camden recordings by Presley and other RCA recording artists to the budget label Pickwick Records. Burning Love was reissued with the same cover art on the Pickwick label. After Presley's death in 1977, RCA reclaimed its rights to their Pickwick/Camden recordings. The album was first reissued on compact disc on the RCA Camden label in 1987. The album was certified Gold on March 27, 1992, Platinum on July 15, 1999 and 2x Platinum on January 6, 2004 by the RIAA.[3] RCA reissued the album on CD again in 2006 as part of a reissue series featuring most of Presley's RCA Camden albums.
