    The Best of Both Worlds

    Few can deny Elvis Presley's overwhelming influence on the rock music genre. If he didn't invent the style, as a handful of dissenters contend, he certainly defined it and inarguably reigns, by a staggering margin, as its number one selling artist of all time. BMG's latest Elvis release, "Christmas Peace," demonstrates the sphere of his influence goes beyond the parameters of rock and roll, impacting two musical sub-cultures: Gospel and Holiday Seasonal. Elvis's song catalog from these genres is voluminous and his overall record sales for each group far surpass the totals of any respective competitor. In fact, according to the CD's liner notes, the "King of Rock and Roll" has sold over 100 million Christmas and spiritual records in his career!!!! "Christmas Peace" is a savvy pairing of the two similar styles and spotlights 20 of Elvis's finest gospel tunes and an equal number of his Christmas recordings. Following the pattern established with last years mega-hit "Elvis 30 #1 Hits" and this years Top-Ten release "Elvis 2nd to None", BMG offers in chronological order, samplings of Elvis's songs from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Disc 1 (Christmas) highlights include Elvis's signature holiday song, the brooding "Blue Christmas" and the rollicking "Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me." "If Everyday Was Like Christmas," "If I Get Home on Christmas Day," and the very soulful "Merry Christmas Baby" are standouts, as is "Winter Wonderland"; a song so infectiously bouncy you cannot help but sing along!!! Disc 2 (Peace) features all of the King's most important spiritual selections. The standard classics include "Peace in the Valley" and "How Great Thou Art" (unfortunately, the 1960s studio version, not the more sweeping and moving concert version of the early 1970s) and "Amazing Grace." "Crying in the Chapel," a 1965 release that hit Number 1 on the pop charts is a beautiful ballad but seems out of place in this grouping. Of the 1970s offerings, "An Evening Prayer" and "He Touched Me" best demonstrate Elvis's remarkable vocals. Disc 1 is just a good a compilation of Elvis's Christmas material as any previously released. Disc 2, because of the 20 song limitation, merely provides a glimpse of Presley's brilliant gospel catalog (to get the complete picture, one must purchase the 1994 box set "Amazing Grace: His Greatest Sacred Performances). But for those seeking to capture the best of both worlds, "Christmas Peace" is a collection worth having.
