Since I was two years old, all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release.” Elvis fans are well aware of their idol’s veneration for gospel. Fans who are always willing to expand their already XXXL music library. Even when the attempt ostensibly looks like a cash grab… This Where No One Stands Alone celebrates the King’s gospel side. Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, the album released in August 2018 features re-orchestrated versions performed with artists who worked with Elvis on stage or in studio, like Darlene Love (who sang with him for the first time during the NBC TV special in 1968) and Dr Cissy Houston (who, along with the Sweet Inspirations, performed with the King on stage from 1969). Where No One Stands Alone also includes a duo with his daughter Lisa Marie Presley on the eponymous song. “It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father, she writes in the album’s sleeve notes. The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I'm certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way.” Also featured are some classics so dear to the King, like Crying In The Chapel, How Great Thou Art, You’ll Never Walk Alone and Saved composed by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, as well as So High, Stand By Me, In The Garden and the indispensable Amazing Grace. Titles for the most part borrowed from two gospel albums, How Great Thou Art released in 1967 and He Touched Me in 1972. Concretely, only the King’s voice was retained. The parts with the Jordanaires, guitarists Scotty Moore, Chip Young and James Burton, Floyd Cramer’s piano and D. J. Fontana’s drums were all scrapped. For those who know the original recordings, it’s a painful amputation. Even upsetting… Yet the work offered here is honest and doesn’t distort the King’s initial intention nor the spirit of his interpretations. Quite logically, this 2018 production brings a “contemporary” touch without vainly and hypocritically trying to remain young and modern. The master’s voice remains intact and staggering as ever. The union between the King and the Lord could only be divine… © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Since I was two years old, all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing.

Aretha Franklin, Atlantic’s Queen

Between 1967 and 1979, Aretha Franklin recorded her greatest albums for the label Atlantic. It was in these albums that she blended the gospel from her childhood with rhythm’n’blues and ultimately re-defined the boundaries of modern soul music.

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

Elvis, Still The King?

40 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled precursor. But even if his most important performances of 1954/55 for Sun Records remain the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the aura today of the King seems to be fading in favour of younger generations such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys among others. And yet…
