RCA's first single-disc anthology of the best of Elvis Presley's gospel recordings, ELVIS ULTIMATE GOSPEL is one of the master's purest records. As the legend of the King states, gospel was Elvis's favorite form of music up until his death, the music he was most likely to sing for fun and for himself. As a result, the 24 tracks here are Elvis at his most relaxed and unaffected, and contain many of his finest and most heartfelt vocal performances.
