This value-for-money 20-track DVD pulls out Bill Gaither's favourite video recordings from a variety of albums recorded during the last 10 years. Bill introduces all of the items and there are many poignant moments with artists and singers who have now passed on. Bill must have found "Something Beautiful" from his late brother Danny Gaither particularly moving. However this could apply to several other artists such as the late Howard Goodman with his very strong rendition of "The Unclouded Day" recorded 12 years ago at the Grand Old Opry building in Nashville. Who could not be moved by Andrae Crouch's "Soon And Very Soon" or George Beverly Shea's personal introduction to how he wrote "I'd Rather Have Jesus"? The only drawback to a compilation of videos from which this is sourced is that many Gaither fans may already have many of the original albums. But presumably this is released to find a new audience.
