"Mark Lowry is a very clever comedian, as well as an excellent singer, and this DVD focuses on his funny routines during the thirteen years he spent with the Gaither Vocal Band. The way it is presented, is that Mark and Bill Gaither are shown in a relaxed setting, as they sit and talk about the clips they show from the many Homecoming Series concerts around the country, as well as one in Ireland, and a short piece in England. It also includes some terrific music with the comedy, and my favorites are the two versions of "I'm Gonna Keep On", with Bill trying to sing the song while he is interrupted by bird calls and Mark's mischief; it's a terrific combination of wonderful music and harmonies, and at the same time totally hilarious.
There is also a clip from the Gospel Singing Jubilee, of Mark when he was a teenager, singing "If it Keeps Getting Better".
The final clip shows us Mark's remarkable vocal talent, as well as his songwriting skills, as he sings "Mary, Did You Know ?", which he co-wrote with Buddy Greene. It's a perfect song, performed with such feeling it is thrilling and fresh no matter how many times one hears it, and it never fails to bring a tear to my eye.
The DVD "extras" include twenty additional minutes of mostly music, with one song featuring Michael English.
Well edited, this is a fast moving one hour and thirty-five minute show, interesting as well amusing, with often laugh-out-loud humor. Good clean fun is hard to come by, and Mark is one of the best at it.

"I need a good laugh at the end of the day, after putting in some hard work, putting up with difficult people and situations, putting out some good food for dinner. This hits the nail on the head, with good clean fun and inspiration. Mark Lowry at his best, what a talent!"
