Christmas & Gospel Greats

October 12, 2020 | Music

From the 'Not Now Music' label a double-CD 'Public Domain' 24-track release combining:

  • DISC 1 - Elvis' Christmas Album,
  • DISC 2 - His Hand In Mine.

The publicity notes: So entrenched was the public perception of Elvis as a hell-raiser, that the announcement he was making a record of Christmas songs sent the world into a tailspin. Released in 1957 Elvis’ Christmas Album, showed that Elvis had created a template for all future Christmas recordings: no rock star had ever undertaken such a project and it was Elvis who paved the way…

Over the years, Elvis would always warm-up in recording studios and before live performances, by singing his favourite Gospel songs. But it was not until 1960, with the release of the LP His Hand In Mine, that the wider world understood the full extent of their rock & roll idol’s fondness for inspirational music. Enjoy this superb 2CD set including "Santa Claus Is Back In Town", "If We Never Meet Again", "Blue Christmas" and many more...

Love the cover, that’s the nicest of all Christmas albums. But won’t be buying it though.

Have always disliked cover photo. Already own the songs many times over. Won't buy.

If this was a Sony album I would buy. There are still dozens of albums on my wish list, my priority for now is the Nashville album out next month. What I would really like to see is an album of duets with Lisa Marie. I generally don't like duets, but I have been listening to some of the duets with Lisa Marie (In the Ghetto, Don't cry Daddy in particular) and I think an album could be a big hit if properly promoted.
