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 RCA's 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 RCA generally released hit singles on the main RCA Victor label, and not the budget RCA Camden subsidiary. RCA repeated the experiment a month later with the release of the compilation Separate Ways which similarly featured a hit single leading a collection of older non-hit soundtrack recordings.[2] Upon its release, it reached number 22 on the Billboard chart. It was certified Gold on March 27, 1992, Platinum on July 15, 1999 and 2x Platinum on January 6, 2004 by the RIAA.[3]
