Gaither Homecoming ‘Pure and Simple DVD 1’ is a reminder that, while the Gaither Vocal Band has been creating music to blow your away your spiritual cobwebs and melt your heart for over three-decades, there’s no room for mediocrity in their musical legacy.
At this time in the group’s history, the Gaither Vocal Band has all the voices and personalities a group could possibly need to make a big, better, louder album…. But no, somehow “louder” didn’t seem “better.” Instead Bill and his Homecoming allies give you the songs and messages want and love without over-produced the tracks with studio tricks and gimmicks.
On this first of two ‘Pure and Simple’ DVDs, the five voices with a chosen selection of great the songs present you with an experience that feels like the Gaither Vocal Band - with a few of their buddies on acoustic instruments, is actually gathered on your front porch singing to you! And on a Gaither produced DVD, that looks as good as it sounds.
This DVD is Region 0, and will play in your UK DVD Player.
Pure and Simple Volume 1 DVD by Gaither Vocal Band was published by Gaither in November 2015 and is our 13594th best seller. The ISBN for Pure and Simple Volume 1 DVD is 0617884876593.
"This new album is appropriately named Pure And Simple … a refreshing interpretation of songs that still blow our socks off, just not our ears. The authentic, affirming truth of each song takes centre stage and the voices, more exposed than ever, transport us to the core foundation of each extraordinary song."
"With Pure and Simple, the Gaither Vocal Band has created a rootsy, authentic collection of relevant, light-bearing songs that will keep us encouraged, inspired and armed for many more miles of the journey. A poignant, simple and beautiful addition to an already remarkable collection of albums from five of our favourite voices!"

“Throughout their history, the Gaither Vocal Band has been creating music that could, at once, blow your socks off and melt your heart with. You don’t create a three-decade musical legacy on mediocre music.” – Gaither News
“Through the years, the Gaither Vocal Band has served as a catalyst for Christian music's most legendary male vocalists, including current members Michael English, David Phelps, and Mark Lowry. Although vocal arrangements at times err over-the-top for an "unplugged" set, easy fiddles, gently plucked mandolin, and simple percussion settle nicely beneath their voices.” – Christianity Today
“I think this album explores some new ground for the group, and I for one found it to be a very satisfying musical experience. Despite what the title says, these arrangements are complex and interesting enough to keep me coming back for more. In a genre where many artists are sticking to the same formula, we can always count on Bill and the boys to bring something a little different to the table. This album is a breath of fresh air, and for any southern gospel fan I would rate it as a must buy.” – Southern Gospel Yankee
Gaither Music collaborator and solo artist in his own right gave his impressions of the ‘Pure and Simple’ recording sessions in Nashville, to his official online community: “It was a pretty small intimate setting.” He said, and the studio was “pulsating with talent!
With the studio set fixed up to look like the front porch of an old garage David Phelps found himself sat on a stack of tyres when to sing his "Fool's Gold" number. “It looked like the guys were having fun performing,” he recounts, “they were laughing and cutting up with each other.” Commenting on the playful yet professional attitude of other Gaither Music Vocal Band members, David said that Bill Gaither joked with Mark Lowry that he (Mark) was the reason the DVD had been titled "Pure and Simple"!
On a little stage behind the band - that included Ben Isaacs, Kevin, Sonya Yeary, Greg, and more there was a little choir singing with Angela Primm and others and, of course the Booth Brothers with 3 or 4 numbers of their own. With cameras flying around above their heads to give Gaither Homecoming DVD fans the best possible experience, David commented that the acoustics were excellent and promises that the music is awesome. There are some new songs – “homey and nice with good messages… simple, with not as much grandiosity as some of the other recordings.”
This might sound like a departure from the usual Gaither depth and richness, but it’s very relaxed – like it would be on Bill Gaither’s home porch. Bill tells the stories and circumstances of how some of the songs have came to be written; remarking on how David Phelps himself comes up with the beautiful and intricate harmonies that Homecoming fans loves.
Summing up, David tells Gaither Music lovers something you already know, and the reason you’re looking forward to playing this DVD in your own home: “It’s a great experience… it was a lot of fun being there.”
