The basic home recording of Suppose features Elvis' voice and piano by Charlie Hodge and was recorded sometime in late 1966/early 1967 at 10550 Rocca Place, Bel Air, California.

This session is listed in 'Sessions III' although it is not listed by Ernst Jørgensen in 'A Life In Music'. Perhaps this session was initially intended just to overdub backing vocals to the original home recording, but then the idea was abandoned in favour of recording a new backing track and adding backing vocals, on March 20.
