Righto. "There Is No God But God" is really up there. My mistake.

The worst Gospel Album by far.

However, the Elvis world would not be the same with the superb Amazing Grace track. I also really like Reach Out to Jesus – it’s a bit of a good movie song type gospel number if that makes any sense???!!!

And another thing.

The more I hear A Thing Called Love the further back Elvis' voice gets !

To the point where he's hardly discernable at all !

The original album wasn't like that, was it ?

Or is it an 'age' thing ?

Well, maybe you are right !

This used to sound like a fairly 'normal' Elvis track, albeit virtually sung as a 'duet'.

But when I hear it these days, I wonder where his vocal has gone !

To my ears Elvis has always sounded way way back, almost to the point where he might as well not be there at all.

Thanks !

At least it's not just me then !

But I just thought that his presence made itself known a tad more on the vinyl album, that's all...............

I stand corrected by myself!! :shock:

"Bosom of Abraham" has actually two chords. "I John" has only one.

Voted for "Bosom of Abraham"!
My favorite back in 73 when I got the album as a birthday present would probably have been " I got confidence" or "Seeing is believin"
I still like those songs and really think this is a good album but it sure could need some upgrade, soundwise.
The only song I really don´t like on this album is " There is no God, but God"

I just wish "Bosom of Abraham" were a little longer. They could've done another verse or two of that one.

Seeing Is Believing is great. I really am surprised by this result.

It's pretty good.

The more 'bluesy' outtake is even better !

Hard fight, but "Lead me, guide me" is a good choice.

Thanks for voting!

"I, John" has only 1 chord?
