Well you rock my soul

It surely did rock my soul. Great gospel performance.

Ridiculously short, repetitive, dull and boring. One of Elvis' very worst gospel recordings, if not the worst.

Love it but it's way too short.

A fine performance, and fun to sing along to. I agree that its a bit short on playing time.

Elvis and gospel is an unbeatable combination!

A great performance; the rehearsal is also wonderful.

Elvis obviously had fun doing songs like this and it shows in his performance. The interaction of all the voices and harmonies are beyond words. Just a great rollicking gospel classic.

Good, but not great. From my least favorite gospel LP. Song and LP 3 stars.
