Another dredge through all those Bill & Gloria Gaither's Homecoming Friends videos/CDs to showcase the eclectic singer/songwriter/comedian. It starts with him rather overselling Hank Williams' bluesy oldie "A House Of God" but then the Homecoming Friends aren't exactly known for their musical restraint. Better is the devotional ballad "Make It Real", his rendition of the ancient Bill Gaither song "He Touched Me" and his version of "We Fall Down" though Mark's version isn't as good as its composer Kyle Matthews or gospel's Donnie McClurkin. Less diverse than Vol 1, this set concentrates more on Mark's smooth way with ballads.
