Side 1

How Great Thou Art
In the Garden
Somebody Bigger Than You and I
Farther Along
Stand By Me
Without Him

Side 2

So High
Where Could I Go But to the Lord
By And By
If the Lord Wasn't Walking By My Side
Run On
Where No One Stands Alone
Crying in the Chapel

Inner Sleeves
To identify the inner sleeve that is most appropriate for each release, look at the Inner Sleeves page on this site.

Depending on the source, the release date of this LP is either 2/20/1967 or 3/8/1967. It charted 3/25/1967 and peaked at number 18 to remain on the charts for 29 weeks. The Grammy Awards were held 2/29/1968. All copies of this record that I have seen with the Grammy Award Winner sticker have had the 20-112-21 40D insert, which is 6/1968. Additional reading has indicated a great push for Elvis in 11/1968, which is when the orange label LPs were introduced. The Grammy Award Winner sticker was only around for a few months. The Grammy Award Winner printed on back was likely introduced in the 11/1968 push.678910

Also released in monaural as LPM-3758 How Great Thou Art and re-released as AFL1-3758 How Great Thou Art.
