Reviewed by Dave Brassington

This album is great! With the Homecoming Friends becoming a veritable Southern gospel production line even the most avid supporter of Gaither and their select bunch of friends can sometimes feel a certain déjà vu when faced with the latest Gaither Music release. But as it turns out, the songs here contain some of the most emotional and meaningful Christian lyrics ever! Beginning and closing with two truly timeless hymns, Robert Lowry's "Nothing But The Blood" and William Newell and Daniel Towner's "At Calvary", this is a musical and theological tour de force though one could criticise the inadequate packaging of this compilation for only telling us that these two songs were performed by "the Homecoming Friends" (though we are advised that the first hymn has Buddy Green on harmonica). Elsewhere we have "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" and Larry Ford singing "The Holy City". Bill's original classic "Because He Lives" is here sung by the Gaither Vocal Band, as is "At The Cross". The Isaacs add some country class on "I Will Praise Him". On reflection I think there is one major omission on such a release: the non-selection of "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord". All in all though, some fine Easter music.
