As the second volume of Elvis: His Songs Of Praise, this book completes the story chronicling a further 51 sacred, spiritual and inspirational gospel songs to add to the 55 songs featured in the first volume. Once again, the story of each song is told in extensively researched detail; also observe the high quality and subtle differences on the front cover and many other photographs of Elvis throughout the 350 pages.
Elvis’ vast knowledge and diversity of spiritual music is fully highlighted within the combined 700 pages, his sincere interpretations of them and how he dipped into music from the gospel category throughout his career.
