His Songs Of Praise Volume 2

The second and last volume in this series on Elvis' gospel recordings by Trevor Simpson. This is what FTD says about it:

As the second volume of Elvis: His Songs Of Praise, this book completes the story chronicling a further 51 sacred, spiritual and inspirational gospel songs to add to the 55 songs featured in volume 1. Once again, the story of each song is told with extensively researched detail. Also observe the high quality and subtle differences on the front cover and many other photographs of Elvis featured throughout the 350 pages. 

In addition, the 32-track CD that runs for over 79 minutes features many rare and officially unreleased tracks.
