Beautifully recorded with the his backing groups at the time who were also very gospel inspired, having a great feel for these classic numbers that still stand today as a sincere form of worship to our lord.
All the numbers were recorded between 1957 to 1971.
You can tell the way Elvis sings these gospel songs that he was a man of great faith whose spirituality was very important to him.
Twenty selected tracks opening with "Take My Hand Precious Lord" a very powerful interpretation. He covers "Amazing Grace" which is just so moving.
There is an informal recording of "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus/Nearer My God To Thee, which is incredibly moving.
I love the fast paced "Working On The Building" that's joyous to listen to.
It goes on one great gospel song after another.
This C.D. will move you, inspire you, and make you happy.
