Billboard in its August 12, 1972 issue put the single "Burning Love / It's a Matter of Time" on the recommended list (New Radio Action Billboard Pick Singles, section "Pop").[4]


While the A-side ("Burning Love") made it to number two on the Hot 100,[5] the flip side ("It's a Matter of Time") charted both on the Billboard Easy Listening and Hot Country Singles charts.[6]

"Burning Love / It's a Matter of Time" became the last Elvis Presley's single to be certified platinum.[7]
