BILL GAITHER’S HOMECOMING HYMNS REVIEWED
“Bill Gaither’s Homecoming Hymns” is another Time-Life exclusive box set dedicated to the 20th century’s pioneer of Gospel Revival music. While the name might not mean a ton to people outside of his target demographic, Gaither has been making music covered by everybody from The Oak Ridge Boys to Elvis Presley. Given that bit of history, let’s address why most of you have never heard of him. The reason being is that his target audience and my target audience doesn’t tend to overlap. Why?
Well, not everything is meant for you. Bill Gaither tends to target older folks and those wanting a traditional approach to their entertainment. Over 10+ discs, I got to see something refreshing fly in the face of modern pop culture. It was a rather public declaration that said this is what I like and this is why I do. If you have a problem, then deal with it. I can respect that and I enjoy that Time Life keeps releasing materials like this.
