Product Description

Product Description

2008 digitally remastered and expanded edition of Elvis' first Gospel album from 1960 featuring four bonus tracks: 'Peace In The Valley', 'It Is No Secret', 'I Believe' and 'Take My Hand'. Elvis grew up listening to Gospel music and, over the years, he evolved from a faithful interpreter to a cutting edge pioneer of the genre. As with his secular music, Elvis invented his own version of Gospel, drawing from every element of his vast musical knowledge without any musical prejudice or racial barriers. Legacy.

Amazon.ca

Elvis was a walkin', talkin', singin' combination of indigenous American music and styles, but probably the first music he heard as a child was gospel--in Southern Baptist churches, on Memphis radio (where white Southern gospel quartets flourished during the '40s and '50s), and from black churches. Presley released an EP of gospel music in the '50s, around the same time he performed "Peace in the Valley" on one of his Ed Sullivan appearances. This 1960 release, however, represents his first full-length foray into gospel, and while it's a bit more produced than the EP, it still features beautiful singing. Staples such as "Joshua Fit the Battle" and "Swing Down Sweet Chariot" sound like they came directly from a Memphis service. Of course, for Presley, gospel included everything from the title track by Stuart Hambler (who ran against Eisenhower on the Prohibition ticket) to Rodgers & Hammerstein. After all, hybridization was his magic. --Bill Holdship

When I was a little girl, my dad, who wasn't an Elvis fan, had this album. I remember him playing it in our living room and singing along. I lost my dad to cancer in 1987, before I got married and had my son. But I found this album on Amazon, after reading a book on my Kindle which mentioned it, and ordered the CD immediately. Can't tell you enough how much I'm enjoying this wonderful music in my car. Brings back very special memories of a great dad. The melodies are perfect for Elvis' voice - very uplifting (and I'm not even religious).

1960 was one of the best year in ELVIS's career.Two of his best lps were release during that year.First,there was ELVIS IS BACK that showed how ELVIS had matured as a singer.Then there was HIS HANDS IN MINE,a wonderful gospel record.I am not too fond of gospel in general,but here ELVIS uses his talent as a singer so well that i am forced to give him the accolade for letting us discover the music that he loved as a young kid in TUPELO and MEMPHIS.In fact,people who still think that ELVIS was a degenerate because they hated HOUND DOG and JAILHOUSE ROCK should listen to this disc,it might change their opinion about the man.It is my beleive that ELVIS never sang better.All the songs are enjoyable,but i am particularely fond of the title track,MANSIONS OVER THE HILLTOP,I BELEIVE IN THE MAN IN THE SKY and WORKING ON THE BUILDING.The added tracks are there because they were the first ever gospel recordings by ELVIS.If you don't have this one,your ELVIS collection is not complete.

His Hand In Mine is more than a gospel record. Elvis singing is pure magic. I don't think he ever sang better in his life. The voice is rich, deep and there's some velvet in his voice when he reachs some notes. Just a fabulous collection.
