This DVD is a very nice souvenir of many outstanding performances recorded over the years on other homecoming albums. Bill has personally selected each item and he introduces each track. There are many moving performances particularly when it comes to artists who are no longer with us like Vestal Goodman and Glen Payne. I was most impressed by the acapella version of "In The Garden", by the Mullins Family who I am not familiar with. Irishman Larry Ford's version of "Whispering Hope" I found particularly outstanding. If I had to pick one favourite it would be "Lord, Send Your Angels" from Candy Christmas, Kim Hopper and Charlotte Ritchie. The only draw back to this otherwise fine selection is if you have many of these recordings on previous Gaither releases.
