"Ain't That Loving You, Baby" is a song written by Clyde Otis and Ivory Joe Hunter and originally recorded by Eddie Riff in 1956.[1] It was recorded by Elvis Presley on June 10, 1958, but wasn't released as a single by him until September 1964 (with no comma in the title) when it reached number 16 on the Billboard chart, with "Ask Me" as the flipside.[2] It is a standard shuffle in E major. The song, along with "Ask Me", were later included on the 1968 compilation album Elvis' Gold Records Volume 4, and an alternate take with a faster tempo was released in 1985 on the compilation album Reconsider Baby.[2]
