The group who appeared with Elvis so often during his later years, the Sweet Inspirations, had a number 5 R&B hit with their original recording of "Sweet Inspiration" in 1968. The number was recorded in Memphis on 24 August 1967 and released on Atlantic 45-2476. The opening instrumental bars are remarkably similar to those used in Elvis's "Suspicious Minds."
At the time of their recording, the Sweet Inspirations consisted of Cissy Houston, Estelle Brown, Sylvia Shemwell, and Myrna Smith. Cissy Houston was Whitney Houston's mother.
