ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was no secret that EP loved the voice of Sherrill Nielsen. During a Las Vegas show, Elvis introduced him as “the greatest tenor in gospel music.” In Elvis’ final years, Sherrill became an integral part of his music both on stage and in the recording studio. To name a few, you can hear Sherrill singing harmony with Elvis on “Blue Spanish Eyes,” “Help Me” and the high falsetto ending on “Unchained Melody.” Sherrill is well known to fans for singing “O Solo Mio” as an intro to “It’s Now Or Never” during Elvis concerts, and for the unusual “Softly, As I Leave You,” where Sherrill sings and Elvis recites the words. This duet with Elvis was ranked six in the nation and nominated for a Grammy®.

Sherrill Nielsen passed away at 11:06 am on December 10, 2010 in Cullman, AL. However, during his life Sherrill sang with some of the most outstanding groups in the history of Gospel Music, such as The Statesmen, The Singing Speers and the original Imperials. Sherrill also received Grammy awards and is in several Hall of Fames.

Summarizing the talent of Sherrill Nielsen is an analogy for “The Impossible Dream.” His commitment to excellence and his love and appreciation for an audience had to be experienced to be fully understood. Perhaps Elvis said it best, when on the back of Sherrill’s first paycheck he wrote, “God loves you, but He loves you best when you sing.”

This four disc package of 77 songs (plus Sherrill’s personal comments) was produced by Harrison Tyner, engineered by 8-time Grammy® winner Tom Pick, and arranged by the legendary Harold Bradley. Some of the greatest musicians in the world recorded these songs in various Nashville, TN studios. Musicians such as Pete Wade, Reggie Young, John Lee Christopher, James Capps, and Harold Bradley on guitar – David Briggs, Robert Ogdin, and Hargus “Pig” Robbins on piano – Henry Strzelecki, Mike Leech and Bob Moore on bass – Buddy Harman, Jerry Carrigan and Larry London on drums – plus strings and horns from the Nashville Symphony. Vocal Accompaniment by Hurshel Wiginton, Jeanine Walker, Donna Sheridon, Dennis Wilson, Janie Fricki, Lea Jane Singers, and The Jordanaires.

Disc 1 is titled TREASURED MEMORIES. There are 37 tracks on this disc containing both Sherrill’s comments about being with the King and the songs Elvis loved so much. Prior to his death, Felton Jarvis (Elvis’ producer) wrote, “If you are an Elvis Presley fan, Sherrill’s personal recollections prior to each song will touch you. If you attended Elvis shows, then you too will relive many of the occurrences. Sherrill was Elvis’ favorite singer. Elvis brought such happiness to so many of us with his music. Sherrill brought such happiness to Elvis with his music. I have spent many, many hours sitting with Elvis at Graceland, on the road, and in recording studios, listening to Sherrill sing for him. I believe this to be some of his happiest times. Elvis’ spirit surely must have been hovering over Sherrill while recording this album, done in total love. He sings so good! It is so touching! This great collection of Elvis’ favorite songs by Elvis’ favorite singer.”

Disc 2 is titled A LOVING HEART. There are 23 songs of faith on this disc, including Sherrill’s touching song dedicated to his only daughter, SherRee’. She was killed by a drunk driver at the age 20. Sherrill states, “Only those who have lost a loved one can understand the pain the loss brings. My song is not only about the pain, but also about that which makes it bearable – the wonderful promise that believers treasure; the promise that makes even our tears rejoice. The promise that when we join them in heaven, forever’s going to heal the pain.” Ray Walker of the legendary Jordanaires wrote, “Sherrill Nielsen made his mark on the Gospel Field and on the Commercial Field as well. Sherrill’s heart went into everything he did. His association with Elvis was a highlight in both their lives. Elvis enjoyed and respected Sherrill’s heart, artistry and his willingness to share with him and others. Sherrill was one of the good guys.”

Disc 3 is titled TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS. There are 17 commercial songs on this disc, such as “Dream Baby” and “Games People Play,” along with some memorable Irish songs, such as “My Wild Irish Rose,” “I’ll Take You Home Kathleen,” and others. Harrison Tyner wrote, “Sherrill was always a joy to work with – a true professional; a legendary singer and performer. Listening to his performances, either through recordings such as these or through memories of him on stage, one quickly realizes that Sherrill Nielsen was truly a one-of-a-kind, special entertainer. But, after all these years, that which I will always cherish most about him was his unwavering loyalty, dedication and friendship.”

Disc 4 is titled SHERRILL’S UNRELEASED WORK. There are 18 commercial songs on this disc, such as “Pretty Woman” and “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling,” along with more Irish songs, such as “The Rose of Tralee,” “Mother Machree,” and others. Harrison Tyner wrote, “Professionally, non will ever compare to Sherrill Nielsen – he was simply the best of the best. I know that Sherrill was Elvis’ favorite singer, as Felton Jarvis stated, and Ray Walker’s comment that Sherrill was one of the good guys I know to be true from personal experience. Sherrill was always loyal, dedicated and supportive of his loved ones and friends, of which I am proud to say I was one.”
