Hear Elvis Presley's Rare, Stripped-Back Take of 'Suspicious Minds'
Track will appear on soundtrack to new HBO doc 'The Searcher'
A companion album to HBO's upcoming documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher features his hits, as well as some different versions of his best-known songs. One of the more notable rarities is an alternate take of "Suspicious Minds" – the 18th and final Number One single of the King's career.
Where the single version sports a bright horn arrangement, backing vocals and a false fadeout, the alternate version – dubbed "Suspicious Minds (Take Six)" – is a more stripped-back production. In addition to the standard rock instrumentation (guitar, bass and drums), there's a little organ in the background, making for a more subdued performance. Presley, too, seems to be holding back when compared to the hit – though in some ways his restrained vocal performance seems to play up the depression that can come with suspicion.
