It is extremely difficult to discover just who originally recorded this Mosie Lister song. Mosie probably wrote the song for The Statesmen in 1955, and they released the number as "Jesus Knows What I Need" on a 78 (number 1041) on their own Statesmen label, backed with "I Believe In The Man In The Sky," but I have been unable to confirm the recording date. Still, it is likely that this was before that of the Blackwood Brothers, who made their own version, now titled "He Knows Just What I Need," in December 1955 and released it on their 1956 RCA Victor album, "Hymn Sing." Composer Mosie Lister was a founder member of the Statesmen Quartet in 1948, for whom he also wrote and did arrangements. He soon became so popular and prolific as a songwriter that he gave up singing, however, to concentrate on churning out countless superb songs in the gospel tradition. Both the Statesmen Quartet and the Blackwood Brothers were great favourites of Elvis.
