The second of two albums assembled by the Country Music Foundation's Jay Orr (the other is Elvis in Nashville), Elvis Gospel 1957-1971: Known Only to Him was a 14-track compilation culled largely from Presley's inspirational records, the 1957 EP Peace in the Valley and the albums His Hand in Mine (1960), How Great Thou Art (1967), and He Touched Me (1972). The music is consistently effective, confirming Presley's affection for gospel. (AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann  )
