When Elvis was growing up, the Presley family attended The First Assembly Of God Church in Tupelo and subsequently in Memphis. Elvis's music was greatly influenced by attending these churches but religious music came to Elvis in many different shapes and forms. Religious songs were often part of the repertoire for country stars on the Grand Ol' Opry - a syndicated Nashville radio broadcast that the Presleys' almost always tuned into on Saturdays. As a teen, Elvis and his friends would sneak into churches in the black neighbourhoods to catch the lively music of a different musical heritage. The welcoming congregations and uplifting sounds opened up Elvis's understanding of the multiple facets of religious music. Ultimate Gospel “ Deluxe Edition provides testament to Elvis's musical excellence and acknowledges the priceless contribution of the talented songwriters, musicians and producers involved. There is no doubt about the importance of Elvis Presley's contribution to the popularisation of religious music and this CD offers all of Elvis's greatest inspirational recordings on one CD of 25 tracks, mastered from the original master tapes for optimum sound quality, in a deluxe package with great Elvis photos.
