Product Description


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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars My dad and Elvis Aug. 16 2011
Format:Audio CD
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars elvis never sang better... Jan. 15 2014
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS GOSPEL OPUS 1 Feb. 4 2010
By alain robert TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis 20th Century Gospel at it's smoothest May 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All these songs are done beautifully. I have had this album and Elvis' other gospel albums since he was alive. His feel for this type of music was real and reveals where some of his musical roots were. He and the quartet have a blend that is somewhere between the Ames Brothers and the Everly Brothers. The songs are fast and slow and all have sweet melodies and hand clapping rhythms. My favorites are "I Believe in the Man in the Sky" (Later released as a single) and "Swing Down Sweet Chariot" and the title tune. There are no filler songs here. If you like really good gospel blended voice style songs, there are no better choices than this. The only others that I would say are this good are Elvis "How Great Thou Art" and "He Touched Me."

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal Communication Between Artist and Audience March 14 2003
By Edith Harvath - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've always felt Elvis' true love was Jesus.
Something in his voice conveys the depth and conviction of his religious beliefs. These songs are beautiful and inspiring and have brought me comfort and a sense of serenity. When you consider Elvis's own difficult life, you realize even though we are weak and frail human beings, we can have a rich and rewarding spiritual life. As a line in the title song says, "And if I fall, I know you'll understand." The songs, the voice, the depth of emotion in this cd make for a very personal communication between artist and audience. Elvis at his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis at his best March 18 2006
By Richard Laycock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've heard Elvis since I was a kid in the '50s but I never appreciated his talent fully until I bought this CD. Everything about it is remarkable. Not only is the singing wonderful but Elvis had a hand in most of the arrangements. The music on most of the tracks is simply produced and sincere to the point of true inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everlasting beauty Sept. 1 1998
By kenneth.jorgensen@seer.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For more than 20 years this album from the early sixties, has been one of my best acquaintances, and I don't think I will ever get tired of listening to these happily swinging gospel songs. Though not being a religious guy at all this album just keeps on moving me each time I play it, and I can truly recommend it to anyone in search for some quality entertainment.
