"He Touched Me"
With the birthdate of Elvis Aaron Presley January 8, WSVNRadio has been
fortunate to feature some of his albums as album pick of the week. His
Madison Square Garden concert (1991) and Burning Love (1994)
have been chosen the week of his birthday, and for the third time, his He
Touched Me has been selected in 2005.
Elvis Presley's gospel albums are truly some of the greatest music ever
recorded. His two most famous ones, How Great Thou Art and His Hand
In Mine were recorded during the peak of his career. He Touched Me
released long after his death in 1992, captures Elvis in his later years at
gospel recording, and as most songs are as spirtual and moving, the others do
blend in well with the gospel, pop and country styles.
"He Touched Me" has a true gospel feel, where such songs as "I've
Got Confidence," "Seeing Is Believing" and "Lead Me, Guide Me" all
have the pop and country sounds heard in many of Elvis' songs in his later years.
"There Is No God But God" also has the pop and country styles, and is a
very upbeat number. "He Is My Everything" is a revision of "There
Goes My Everything" with lyrics in a spiritual content. "A Thing Called
Love" is a remake, as I can't recall the original artist, but its one of
those songs you have heard before, if you're a fan of music's past.
There are some very spiritual songs on this release -- "An Evening
Prayer," "Reaching Out To Jesus" and "I, John." The latter song is
similar to one of my favorite songs on this album, "Bosom Of Abraham."
Two songs I enjoy the most is "Bosom Of Abraham" and the very very
spritual "Amazing Grace," Elvis' version is never tiring, as his voice
is in great form, with an outstanding choir.
A great mix of spiritual, pop and country sounding in many of the later
years of his career, He Touched Me is another great gospel release by
Elvis, as he always enjoyed his roots of music, being gospel. Of course his
earlier gospel albums are truly outstanding, He Touched Me captures
Elvis in his later years doing what he enjoys best, singing gospel songs, as
they are spiritual and moving for any gospel fan. If you haven't experienced
his gospel releases, any of them are a good start.
