Album Review

An expanded three-disc collection that attempts to trump a 1994 double-disc set (Amazing Grace: His Greatest Sacred Songs) by offering virtually every single Elvis recording of a sacred song, Peace in the Valley: The Complete Gospel Recordings accomplishes the mission in its title, but at a hefty price that won't appeal to any but the most obsessive-compulsive fan. Obviously, it includes each track from his three gospel LPs — 1960's His Hand in Mine, 1967's How Great Thou Art, and 1972's He Touched Me — plus scattered alternate takes that are previously unreleased. The third disc is padded out with an array of Elvis' sacred recordings that are easily available elsewhere, like the 13 gospel tracks on the raw Million Dollar Quartet session recorded at Sun in 1956, the "Gospel Medley" from his 1968 TV Special, and a version of "(There'll Be) Peace in the Valley" originally aired on Ed Sullivan's television show. Though there's no doubt that Peace in the Valley: The Complete Gospel Recordings is a complete set, most Elvis fans will gain little from owning it.

While I am a tremendous Elvis fan, this album is very disappointing. Much of it seems to be tapes of tracks recorded during jam sessions, with very poor quality. It seems to be just a money making release not a good compilation of Elvis gospel.

The Lord

Beware that The Lord's Prayer is a version where he laughs and talks. I downloaded it for my grandmother's funeral music not realizing and it wasn't appropriate.

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s,...
