Elvis recorded Moody Blue one night of February 4-5, 1976, at Graceland. String and horns, which were arranged by Bergen White, were overdubbed later. Moody Blue had a 13-week stay on Billboards Hot 100 chart, peaking at #31. It reached number one (paired with She Thinks I Still Care) for one week on the country chart and #2 on the Easy-Listening chart.
