Pulling together 20 tracks from the popular Homecoming Friends videos/CDs, the earliest here is 1994's version of "He Leadeth Me" by the Martins and the latest 2001 tracks by Ray Boltz and Avalon performing oldies much loved in Billy Graham rallies. Styles vary hugely from genuine Southern gospel to theatric smaltz but many of the songs - "Precious Lord, Take My Hand", "I'll Fly Away", "Precious Memories" - are much loved classics. If you missed all those original releases you might want this 20-song compilation.
