Billboard Review Ultimate Gospel Compilation

Billboard magazine seems to appriciate Elvis and his work more and more. Here is their review of the latest gospel compiltaion "Ultimate Gospel". During his phenomenal career, Elvis Presley won only three Grammy Awards, and they were all for his gospel recordings. Featuring 24 tracks on a single CD, this collection beautifully showcases Presley's deep gospel roots. The packaging includes quotes from his mother, Gladys, commenting on how her son always loved to sing in church. Indeed, Presley's appreciation for the music is revealed on tracks like "Swing Down Sweet Chariot." Timeless standards -- including "How Great Thou Art," "Amazing Grace" and "He Touched Me" -- are delivered with a passion and authority that is truly moving. And depending on the track, he is backed by the Jordanaires, the Imperials Quartet and others. This collection is not just a must for Elvis fans but for anyone who loves great gospel music sung with power and conviction.

Hey Guy's, am I alone here. Did anyone buy this new Gospel CD. One thing I like is having 25 Gospel songs on 1 CD. On some of the 70's recordings, you can hear the sonic enhancements. Anyway, Rolling Stone magazine, doing a write-up for Elvis's Gospel music, should give us hope that popular culture might start heading in a positive direction...

Great news. His passion for Gospel music comes through, in such a way that the ego is completely surrendered to the spirit. 'Where no one stands alone', and the others mentioned are testimony to that. When Elvis sang Gospel, the passion came right from his Soul, thru his mind, into his heart, and out of his mouth. When the rest of the world gets that on a deeper level, they will finally start to understand the importance of Elvis. As far as the music world is concerned, and popular culture in general, There is 'Elvis', then all the others. It will alway's be that way... I hope they figure out a way to get this new "Ultimate Gospel" out there in a real big way.
