Regularly covered throughout the 50′s and 60′s by the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Sam Cooke '(There Will Be) Peace In The Valley' is the eighth track from Little Richard's March 1962 gospel record – 'The King Of The Gospel Singers'.
'The King Of The Gospel Singers' led to the regeneration of Little Richard's career and a return to his old rock n' roll sound. 'Peace In The Valley' however finds Little Richard in a different place to the wild man stage antics and song delivery that founded his influence upon so many future performers from Hendrix to Bowie.
