Elvis Presley

Christmas Classics and Gospel Greats: Limited Edition Silver Vinyl LP


Release Date: 23 October, 2020

Elvis Presley’s first holiday album was 1957’s “Elvis' Christmas Album”. The original 1957 LP consisted of six popular Christmas songs, two traditional Christmas carols and four gospel songs which had been released earlier in 1957 on the EP “Peace in the Valley”. Those included two spirituals by innovator Thomas A. Dorsey, "Peace in the Valley" and "Take My Hand, Precious Lord”. This Vinyl Passion specially expanded version of the Christmas Album includes a further four Gospel tracks taken from Elvis’ 1960 Gospel album “His Hand in Mine”. These four tracks “Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho”, “He Knows Just What I Need”, “I Believe In The Man In The Sky” and Swing Down Sweet Chariot combine with the original 12 tracks from “Elvis' Christmas Album” to create a programme of both secular Christmas songs and the gospel numbers that Elvis himself grew up with.
