Cool! I would have thought it was somewhere near / in Memphis! I wonder how the heck they chose that one? It is beautiful, but there must be a story behind the choice...
I know! Of all the picturesque churches and chapels in the USA, esp. down south where he was from, a church on Cape Cod was used. I have never found out why.
It is a puzzle as to why they chose to use that church on the album cover but it is a lovely little church.As for Elvis, my hubs likes his music and has many of his records. Me, I can take him or leave him, but at Christmas time I would prefer to skip over his Christmas CD that John always loads into the our CD player's magazine - guess I just don't appreciate Elvis's versions of Christmas carols. :D
As someone else said theter must be reason for choosing a certain church for the cover.
That pic of Elvis in front of the church looks photoshopped.
how cool---one of my grandfather's favorite hymns :)
That is cool! That is one of my all time favorite spiritual songs and was also played for both of my parents funerals. Awesome JoJo.Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com
That's a Swedish hymn! So that church is in your town?Tina @ Life is GoodCo-host, April 2013 A-Z Challenge Blog@TinaLifeisGood, #atozchallenge
That is cool!
I AM an Elvis Fan. Nice to know where that church is at long last ;0)
That is very cool indeed! A tid bit I never knew. I'm not a big Elvis fan either. Sshhh!!
That is very cool. I never knew that. We listened to a lot of Elvis growing up. My mom is a big fan.History Sleuth's Writings
It's like a giant cake decoration or something.
It is a very cool looking church, and how cool it was on the cover of his album. ValerieEveryday Inspired
That's pretty cool JoJo! Cute little church. :)
Oh I don't believe Elvis posed for the picture....It definitely looks like it was overlaid with the church. There is absolutely no info that he ever came to Sandwich. Believe me if he had, it would be part of the town's history. It's just cool that the church was used on his album cover!
Yeah, what Maureen said, I always assumed it was a Memphis (or Tupelo) church.
That is very cool, I'll bet there is a story behind the choice of that church. You'll have to do some digging.Thanks for visiting my post about Lakota the Appaloosa. Prince Frederick was a naturalist and traveled up the Missouri river in 1823 where he observed the Sioux hunting buffalo. That was my error, it was not in the 1600s. I've corrected the article.Thanks,Dan Miller
I have a love for antiquity.I love the architecture of former times when buildings were planned for beauty AND function.Now so many new structures look like we're waiting for a visit from the home planet, it seems to me. ;)Beautiful church.
