Elvis at his best? A peak vocal performance? Well quite probably. It is well known and documented by now that after leaving the army Presley wanted to get back to his recording career as soon as possible whilst also pursuing a film career where he hoped to become another Marlon Brando, his screen idol. Having just recorded the album Elvis Is Back he pursuaded RCA to let him record a full album of gospel songs, something of a favourite of his mother's.

This album is the result of an all-night recording session during 1960. And it is simply brilliant. Working with little more than a gospel quartet, piano, bass and percussion, the focus is entirely on the voice of Elvis singing praises to the 'Man In The Sky'. To a non-believer, it might seem a bit hard to take but believe me (if no one else!), it isn't. It's an exhilarating ride and you'll be jumping up and down in the aisles praising someone very soon, if not the Lord, the record company which had enough foresight back then to let the greatest entertainer of the Twentieth Century do whatever he wished at a time when he was peerless. Hallelujah!

I absolutely love this, his voice is pure, the songs well selected for the album, and after an initial clean, which I give all new albums, its tone is perfect. Well pleased

What a voice, what a talent and although he was so talented, I don't believe he ever forgot where he came from. God certainly blessed him, maybe he sings in a heavenly choir now.
