What did Elvis listen to in 1970,was it mostly gospel ??
(I just took a random year)
I've read that he also listened to Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary....

I know early on Mario Lanza was one of his favorites.
It definitley was not just gospel Elvis loved all types of music. Which would explain the variety of music him himself covered throughout his career.
