"Kissin' Cousins" was Elvis' 14th movie release, although of course it was filmed after, but released before "Viva Las Vegas".
The "Lost Album" session had only been four months previously and the preceding "Viva Las Vegas" sessions were just a few weeks beforehand.
The soundtrack session was planned for September 29 and 30, 1963 at Nashville's Studio B, however Elvis had a bad cold and didn't attend.
Without Elvis' presence in the studio there was no driving spark or interaction to help lift the songs above mediocre. The musicians play professionally, but perfunctorily, having no leader to bounce off.
At the overdub session on October 10, 1963 Elvis sometimes tried to add some enthusiasm, but his vocals sound disconnected to the band, often sounding as if he is only reading the lyrics, which he was!
