Another of the double sets...remarkable music of the tent revivals
Every now and then, Gaither Homecoming has some remarkable double programs. And this unique concert was recorded at the Billy Graham Library, in North Carolina. You will get a tour. Surprisingly, two elderly guests who performed with Graham are here, Cliff Barrows 89, music and program director for the Graham organization, and America's beloved gospel singer, 104-year old George Beverly Shea.
It is great to see some of the old timers included in the 140 of gospel singers, namely Ben Speer. This wonderful program recaptures the spirit and fun of the old fashioned tent revival gospel music.
The performers have replicated the dress of the 50's and 60's, complete with the huge tent and sawdust on the floor.
To start the program, one of the first songs of the Gaithers that introduced me to the Homecoming Friends...and that is "Yes, I Know", a long-time favorite. I love the upbeat "Jesus Hold My Hand" and one I had not heard before, "Down to the River". Enjoy the classic "When the Saints Go Marching In".
There is a person, new to me, and her name is Taranda Green. If you enjoyed her singing, she does have a strong presence here thoughout.
Country music favorites, the Gatlin Brothers, The Gatlin Brothers Come Home Gaither Gospel Series and more regulars returned, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, Gaither Vocal Band, The Easters, etc.
"Daddy Sang Bass" was sung by Dailey & Vincent, who performed on another of the best concert doubles, Bill Gaither Presents: A Gospel Bluegrass Homecoming, Volume 1 and Gospel Bluegrass Homecoming, Vol. 2.
It is not often that we get to hear Michael Sykes sing. Sykes is married to Tanya Goodman.
Do yourself a favor and own the partner to this Tent Revival, Bill & Gloria Gaither: The Old Rugged Cross ..... Rizzo

Excellent DVD by the Gaither's
By Onkel Sam
Bill and Gloria Gaither have produced a treasure of DVD and CD recordings in the "Homecoming" Series, and they have all been very good; but the "Tent Revival Homecoming" is one of their best productions to date. Recorded at the Billy Graham Library, it brings together many of the Gospel music artists seen and heard on previous "Homecoming" productions, as well as iconic Billy Graham associates George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows. If you love Gospel music, you'll be totally pleased with this DVD, and you'll enjoy the "Tent Revival Homecoming" CD also.
