Recorded in Binaural.

At around 13 minutes into the movie 'Loving You' a forty second instrumental version of Candy Kisses can be heard but it's unknown when this was recorded or it it was just recorded on the movie set. It had been rumoured over the years that Elvis actually laid down vocals for this song, but no proof has ever surfaced.
