Filmed against the background of the beautiful Red Rocks amphitheatre in Colorado, this DVD finds Bill and Gloria Gaither with many of their familiar friends and musical acquaintances. I particularly enjoyed "Bigger Than Any Mountain" featuring Stephen Hill, Ann Downing and Amy Lambert, and a terrific rendition by Russ Taff, "They Call It Gospel Music". There are some lovely panoramic views of the surrounding areas and most of the music is of a very high quality, including good contributions from the Crabb Family, The Greens and Terry Blackwood. The only downside as far as I am concerned is the comedy, Mark Lowry's clowning with the Gaither Vocal Band I can stand, but the featured spots by Aaron Wilburn and Taylor Mason won't connect with us Brits and spoil for me what is otherwise a very enjoyable DVD.
