Additional information:

This is a 352 page hardcover book (30.5 cm x 25.5 cm), including 1 CD.

Follow That Dream released the second volume of Elvis: His Songs of Praise and this book completes the story chronicling a further 51 sacred, spiritual and inspirational gospel songs, to add to the 55 songs featured in His Songs of Praise, Volume 1. Once again, the story of each song is told with extensively researched detail. Also observe the high quality and subtle differences on the front cover and many other photographs of Elvis featured throughout the 350 pages.

Elvis’ vast knowledge and diversity of spiritual music is fully highlighted within the combined 700 pages, his sincere interpretations of them and how he dipped into music from the gospel category throughout his career.
In addition, the 32-track CD that runs for over 79 minutes, features many rare and officially unreleased tracks. These include many Pure Elvis undubbed studio masters, a dozen rare performances from 1956 to 1977 taken from live shows, studio and movie outtakes, plus impromptu recordings. An added bonus is the officially unreleased December 3rd 1967 Christmas Radio Special, Season’s Greetings From Elvis, shipped to 2,000 radio stations across America for the festive season.

 

Extra Notes:
There are some mistakes on the track listings:

Track 9 - Padre is listed in the section "undubbed songs", but it is the master (mono) with all overdubs.
Track 10 - You'll Never Walk Alone is listed as extended master, but it is take 2.
Track 16 - Listed as March 31, 1972 recording, but it is spliced from March 29, 1977, Alexandria (Bosom Of Abraham) and March 31, 1972, rehearsal (You Better Run) recordings.

Track 1 - I, John was recorded on June 9, 1971 and not on June 10, 1976, as listed.
Track 4 - Reach Out To Jesus was recorded on June 8, 1971 and not on June 9, 1971, as listed.
Track 31 - The First Noel was recorded on May 16, 1971 and not on May 21, 1971, as listed.
Track 32 - O Come, All Ye Faithful was recorded on May 16, 1971 and not on May 21, 1971, as listed.

Tracks 4 and 8 are listed as undubbed alternate takes. This term is needless, because only master takes are overdubbed.
