      A great album with great tracks that differ from the norm.

      In Elvis`s career he recorded close to 1000 songs and amongst them were many gospel tracks, everyone remembers at least a few Elvis tracks but they tend to be either his best known Ballads or the rock tracks that he was famous for.

      Some of the best tracks Elvis ever recorded were gospel tracks and this 3 CD album offers the chance to hear them if you have not done previously or enjoy them again if you do remember the Elvis gospel tracks.

      Peace in the valley is a must for collectors and fans but it should also be considered by anyone considering an Elvis album. This album for me really shows off just how versatile the great man's voice really was as he turns from the hip shaking rock and roll idol we all loved into what is basically a choir boy.

      The title track and how great thou art are two of my favourites on the album but there are many, many more that I love. As well as the recorded gospel tracks this album also offers us some great live gospel tacks and the power of the kings voice really comes through when he sings live.

      I am not a religious man and that is not what this album is about for me, it is all about the greatness of the king's voice and the beauty of the tracks on this album.

        Peace In The Valley

        It is sometimes forgotten that in amongst the 800+ songs that Elvis Presley recorded, some of the best ones are gospel songs. Elvis of course made his name with rock 'n' roll in the mid-to-late 50s, but he was also a very religious man, who liked nothing better than getting together with other singers and singing gospel music. For this reason his gospel songs are often sung with a lot more feeling that a lot of his other work.

        PEACE IN THE VALLEY is an excellent 3CD set, with the subtitle THE COMPLETE GOSPEL RECORDINGS. This includes both studio-recorded songs, and also some live gospel tracks from the many concerts Elvis gave in the last 8 years of his life. My favourite track above all is the live performance of HOW GREAT THOU ART, although other excellent tracks include BY AND BY, BOSOM OF ABRAHAM and the title track PEACE IN THE VALLEY.

        This CD set comes highly recommended.
