Recorded live in Ireland on their recent visit, 'Irish Homecoming' is a wonderful souvenir for anybody fortunate enough to be present at one of their concerts. From the opener "I'm Feeling Fine" it radiates warmth and comes through with some strong material that is fresh and substantial. It mixes Southern gospel, country and even the R&B of Jessy Dixon. The Gaither Vocal Band are again in evidence and like their other live albums there is great linkage, mainly from Bill Gaither, giving the album a very nice flow. Very enjoyable.

This live concert recorded at Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast is spiced with Celtic sounds. Russ Taff moves close to the audience to sing 'Ain’t No Grave.' And the Gaither Vocal Band raises the roof on 'It Is Finished.'
