The His Hand In Mine Sessions

By ElvisNews.com/ Lex, May 03, 2021 | Music

Last week I received the latest FTD outing: The His Hand In Mine Sessions. Basically I can leave it at a referral to my review of the release in the “Classic Album”-series in December 2006. A view seconds were added, the material was reshuffled (a bit) and spread over 3 CDs instead 2. It is still the same motivated Elvis singing the same great music. The sound quality is still great. Okay, the booklet is different, with a nice essay by Ernst Jorgensen, a lot of different covers and info on the single releases. 

Anyway, I don’t get the point in this series. It is nice if you missed the original (don’t know if that one is still available) or if you really are a completist (like I was once).

Nevertheless, I still enjoyed playing it a couple of times.
