Title track country gospel lp. Written by his father. Melody, rhythm and timing as in gospel Soldier Of The Cross, as cut by The Zion Travelers for Doo Tone. It also leans against In The Chapel In The Moonlight (see there), musically and lyrically; or are the possibilities to characterize a chapel (by day or by night) as per definition limited?
Orioles [n°1 R&B]
Lee Lawrence [banned by the BBC, but Presley's version passed]
Four Dukes [rhythm 'n blues version]
Wolfgang Sauer [as Tränen in den Augen]
Gustav Winckler [as Nur Kirkeklokken ringer]
Elvis Presley [n°1 UK in '65, the year Hill & Range obtained publishing rights]
Sonny Til [ex Orioles as Back To The Chapel]
Little Richard [in a reli mood]
Bobby Solo [as La Casa Del Signore]
Elvis turned it into pure gospel. He cut it during an all-gospel session, late at night as always, with sleepy sounding Jordanaires in the background.
