Mark James wrote and recorded 'Suspicious minds' in 1968. After his single was a commercial failure, the song was handed to Elvis Presley, who turned it into one of the most notable hits of his career. It was his seventeenth and last number one hit in the USA.
Session producer Felton Jarvis made the unusual decision to add a
premature fade-out to the song starting at 3:36, mirroring the way
Presley used to perform it in his live Las Vegas stage act. This
fade-out lasts for about 15 seconds before fading back in, conveying a
message of relationship in the song.
