Limited Edition Shape EP with four tracks from the tenth (and first gospel) full-length album by the legendary American Rock’n’Roll singer.
Several years after his first Rock success, during a single late-night-and-early-morning session in October, 1960, Presley recorded the material for his first full gospel LP, "His Hand in Mine". Combining the spiritual force and the physical release he'd experienced from the best gospel singing, Elvis revealed himself as an all-time-great gospel singer, someone who had energy to spare (hardly a surprise) but also immense reserves of control and precision (a rarer commodity among Rock & Roll singers). Most of the songs were standards from the Statesmen, Blackwood Brothers, and other classic quartets Elvis loved, and represent some of the best ballad singing of his career. He's fantastic serving as the lead voice in a group vocal and he shows off his excellent high-tenor singing in a range of situations. "His Hand In Mine" isn't just one of Elvis' best albums, it's one of the best (and best-recorded) gospel sessions of all time!!
