Product Description

Product Description

Elvis Presley’s love of gospel music had long been evident, for he had previously recorded and released an EP of gospel material and used gospel songs to warm up before live performances. The idea to devote an entire album to gospel appealed to Elvis as a singer and in particular to his manager Colonel Tom Parker, who wanted to break Elvis into films and Hollywood; gospel would help Elvis project a family-friendly image. During the course of 14 hours on 30 and 31 October 1960, Elvis recorded a total of fourteen songs; twelve gospel songs together with new material in Surrender and Crying In The Chapel. Whilst the latter two tracks would be held over for single release, the twelve gospel tracks were released as His Hand In Mine in November 1960. A #13 hit in the US, the album surpassed expectations in the UK, where it would power its way to #3 and spend nearly six months on the listing.

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.
