Following two-disc and three-disc collections of Elvis Presley's gospel material, BMG began deconstructing those sets into shorter, one-disc compilations for a budget market. One of three volumes (along with It Is No Secret and Nearer My God to Thee), He Is My Everything: The Gospel Series includes a few of Presley's sacred classics -- notably "His Hand in Mine," "Crying in the Chapel," and "Swing Down Sweet Chariot" -- along with lesser-known material like "Working on the Building" and "In the Garden." Breaking up his material in this fashion doesn't serve fans very well, though it does make sense for those who don't want to pay for or listen to a parade of 75-minute discs.
