Such is the continuing popularity of Anthony among fans of the Bill & Gloria Gaither & Their Homecoming Friends marathon series that the back catalogue of the late pianist has been continually mined. These tracks emanate from 2000 and feature Richard Clayderman-style renditions of hymnody ("Holy Holy Holy"), film themes (theme from Exodus) and even a rendition of Larry Norman's "I Wish We'd All Been Ready" with a vocal by Russ Taff. 'Hands Of Time' also offers three extensive medleys where inspirational oldies are put together in Mr Burger's flamboyant piano stylings. In the US there are even Anthony Burger tribute concerts so clearly, despite his unexpected death in 2006, his legacy continues unabated.
