I like all of Elvis' gospel music.

In a lot of the cuts you can hear talking, laughing, and it makes the music even better.

Gospel music was Elvis' first love and at the time of his discovery by the late Sam Phillips he was seriously considering joining the Songfellows, a gospel quartet, instead of signing to Sun Records. Throughout his career Elvis always used full gospel groups rather than backing singers, on stage and in the studio. At the same time that he was recording All Shook Up in January 1957, he was also recording songs for a gospel EP, Peace In The Valley, all of which were included on Elvis' Christmas Album later that year, and also appear here. 

This collection also draws from three gospel albums that Elvis released: His Hand In Mine (1960), How Great Thou Art (1966) and He Touched Me (1971) and a couple of stray tracks including his hit single Crying In The Chapel, plus a medley of two songs he recorded and filmed at the Elvis On Tour sessions but which remained in the can until 1994. 

Although a great rock singer, unlike his contemporaries, Elvis had the range to sing with an unmatched purity and sincerity on both devotional gospels and secular ballads and wasn't afraid to match his voice with the best gospel singers in the business, as this set ably demonstrates

On this impressive collection of gospel songs Elvis is variously backed by the Jordanaires, Sweet Inspirations, Imperials and the Stamps Quartet. Chronologically the material ranges from songs recorded from 1957 to the early 1970s. They are mostly gospel classics but there are also later compositions like Put Your Hand In The Hand which was a pop hit in 1971.

Several styles are represented, from the slow and solemn hymns like Take My Hand Precious Lord, He Touched Me and I Believe to rhythmic uptempo tracks like Joshua Fit The Battle, By And By and Working On The Building with its lovely backing vocals. My personal favorites include the opening track Take My Hand, this version of Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, In The Garden and Where Could I Go But To The Lord.

I was a bit surprized to learn that Swing Down Sweet Chariot is an uptempo rock song, not the well-known Swing Low Sweet Chariot. The music is inspiring and soulful, revealing the devotional side of the magnificent king of rock and roll. The booklet contains an informative history of Elvis' gospel recordings by Brian Nevill and four photographs: full color one of the Jordanaires and Millie Kirkham, a black and white one of the Imperials plus the front and back pics of Elvis.

Elvis was an extraordinary artist who is sadly underrated. More people should be exposed to his gospel music to hear what a genius he really was. This is the music that Elvis really loved and it comes through very clearly .The passion in his voice is very emotional and uplifting. This cd is a great introduction to the gospel music of Elvis Presley .Great sound quality too for a budget release .

These songs sure bring back some good memories of singin in church. I remembered almost all of them and felt just as good singing them as I did as a teenager. To me Elvis Presley's gospel albums were the best of anything he did. whiling listening to him sing you can feel his love of gospel music coming through. As a teenager I had all his gospel albums but they got ruined when I moved from home. Great memories, great singing.

Elvis Presley was a versatile Artist,but to me his best stuff was always his Gospel stuff and that to me showcased his artistry better than anything. His voice was so well Produced and balanced when he performed Gospel music. this Compilations covers all of his best gospel tracks and then some. a must have for any Elvis fan.

This is just a collection of the old familiar tunes I already know, and Elvis does them proud. There is nothing else I can say, except Elvis is one of the greatest!
