Single taken from the soundtrack of the film Live A Little, Love A Little (1968). Almost In Love, side A, has a seven-second introduction that was eliminated in the version that appeared on the LP of the same title in October 1970. The instrumental part was recorded on March 7 and Elvis provided the vocals four days later. The master was obtained thanks to take four of the instrumental recording and number three of the vocal. No. 95 on Billboard Hot 100 charts.

A Little Less Conversation is a curious topic in Elvis Presley’s career. On the one hand, take number sixteen was used to form the master that would appear on the single and on the film’s soundtrack. For the Almost In Love LP (1970) take number ten was used. Elvis would record it again in the recording sessions for the NBC television special but it was ultimately left out of the program and the soundtrack LP. In the US it would only reach number 69 on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 charts and in the United Kingdom it would not even enter the charts.

In 2002, thanks to a remix made by DJ Tom Holkenborg, known as Junkie XL, A Little Less Conversation became No. 1 in more than 20 countries around the world, including the United Kingdom. Precisely the basis used by the DJ was the recording for the Comeback Special. It was also the central theme of the soundtrack of Ocean’s Eleven (2001) and the protagonist of the Nike advertisement for the 2002 World Cup.

For these recording sessions Elvis has a totally new team of musicians:
Joseph Gibbons, Neil Levang, Charles Britz and Alvin Casey on guitars, Larry Knechtal and Charles Berghofer on bass, Hal Blaine on drums, Gary Coleman on percussion, Don Randi on piano and on backing vocals: BJ Baker, Sally Stevens, Bob Tebow and John Bahler.
