I Believe: The Gospel Masters
Every few years brings another and different iteration of Elvis Presley's gospel recordings, and at four discs, I Believe: The Gospel Masters is the biggest ever released by RCA, including every song from his three gospel LPs and one gospel EP. That accounts for only three-quarters of the program, the other fourth consisting of sacred odds-and-ends throughout his catalog, mostly from his soundtracks or the live show Elvis on Tour, which included a five-song gospel set. Also included are three home recordings and one track from NBC-TV Special, the 1968 comeback show. Elvis' gospel work is still among the best that's ever been produced in that large and talented genre, and he excelled in virtually every setting.
