Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single "Heartbreak Hotel" forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!
As 1960 was coming to a close, Elvis returned to the studios of RCA Nashville and would go on to record his first smash gospel album His Hand In Mine. The amazing LP featured 12 of his most soulful works ever captured on wax like the hit "Crying In The Chapel" and more classics like "I Believe In The Man In The Sky", "Joshua Fit The Battle" and "His Hand In Mine."
The LP soon went on to achieve gold and platinum status and become one of his most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful albums.
Thanks to his great soulful country workouts on "Known Only To Him" and the wonderful "Milky White Way," this collection of Elvis Presley's gospel hits were just what the fans were yearning for, as the entire album was built around his love for gospel and old time religious church music.
