Elvis' third and final gospel album, He Touched Me, is distinct from both of his previous LPs -- it was not only recorded five years after the prior album, but included a far different set of songs and musicians. This is Elvis' contemporary gospel record, including material from Bill Gaither (the title song), Andraé Crouch ("I've Got Confidence"), and Dallas Frazier ("He Is My Everything"). His vocal backgrounds come from the Imperials and J.D. Sumner & the Stamps, and the instrumental arrangements leave space for electric guitar and electric bass. Though it's spiritual, it doesn't have the sacred feel of 1960's His Hand in Mine or the first half of 1966's How Great Thou Art.
