Endorsements

“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!” – Gaither News

“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

Pure Gospel from Bill Gaither's Simple front-porch

Every Gaither live concert DVD recording is a uniquely special event. Songs that have stood the test of time are presented with a new vitality of spirit that always leaves Gaither audiences – at the live event and through the DVD/CDs all the better for sharing in the musical and spiritual experience.

Pure and Simple Volume 2 is no exception. Somehow the band just seems to get better with time. Harmonies are as rich as you’ve come to expect, energy levels are high – though never frenetic, and the music just keeps on coming. This DVD is unique in that mixes live, on-stage performance with live on-the-road comment from the Gaither Vocal Band members.

Packed into a vehicle wired with multiple video cameras and miniature microphones, you get extra insight on the band’s stage show and songs as Bill drives his fellow vocalists around sharing chat, comment and bit of impromptu singing. All this is skilfully edited and mixed into the live recording filmed by Citation Support in Nashville, in front of an audience of friends, family, fellow artists, songwriters and Gaither fans and followers.

The set design takes the band back to its home and gospel roots. Pure and simple, this is a reconstruction of the Gaither’s down-home country front-porch – complete with the rustic furniture, antique fittings and metal signs that give the whole show a warm, intimate and vintage ambiance.

And the sound stays true to the stage set with honest, acoustic-driven arrangements defining both of the DVD volumes as celebrations of the Gaither’s origins and core musical and spiritual values. Songs are rich in their trademark musicality and the staging is visually striking; matching content and spirit of the songs.

Among the strongest Gaither Vocal Band events ever captured for DVD, Pure And Simple gives you all the Gaither regulars plus guest performances by The Booth Brothers, Joey & Rory, and Angela Primm - backed by the ‘Voices of Lee’.  Get a taste of the DVDs quality in spirit and song from the featured video on this page, then take a look at the track list and get yourself a copy of this landmark DVD in of truly enjoyable excellence in the great tradition of revival gospel music. – Les Ellison.

Gaither Vocal Band: Doing Gospel The Way They've Always Done

While studio dependant modern musicians struggle to find the authentic voice of the Christian gospel in song, with ‘Pure and Simple’, The Gaither Vocal Band just carry on doing what they’ve always done – present the message of the gospel in words that go straight to the heart carried on vibrant melodies with pure, soul stirring harmonies and sheer passion and musical talent –plain and simple.

Pure and Simple: the Authentic Sound of the Gospel Message

In the last few years there’s appeared a new trend in Christian music. Performance artists have artists have begun to move away from the heavily sound-engineered studio sound that’s dominated recorded music in the opening decade of this century and closing decades of the last. Contemporary worship and Christian rock musicians have relied heavily on studio expertise to establish their recordings in the commercial sound market. The outcome has been – inevitably, that Christian recordings sound more and more and more like that the music of secular bands. Worse, each Christian band has begun to sound very much like the next… and the next.

Some of this sameness is doubtlessly due to the copycat tendencies of the music business; the best way to succeed is to copy the success of others. Yes, originality is desirable – but don’t be get too original too fast. Be different, but not too different. Sounds and even lyrical content from Christian artists becomes even more homogenous when singers and songwriters have ambitions to get their music used in church worship and sung widely by local worshipping congregations.

Getting Back to Real Voices and Real Musicians

But in the last few years, some of the big bands and brands in Christian music have started to pull the plug on the studio sound. Bethel music have moved decidedly back toward a more ‘acoustic’ sound with their ‘loft sessions’ sub-brand as have Hillsong with ‘Hillsong Chapel’ and casting Crowns with their latest album, ‘The Acoustic Sessions’.

Of course, The Gaither Vocal Band and their friends and guest artists have never really moved away from the authentic sounds of real musicianship. The Vocal Band began and stayed with the sound of human voices joining together unaided by electronic enhancement and trickery. Theirs is a musicianship based on real talent and real passion; they’ve never had to ‘go back to their roots’ – they never left them.

Where ‘modern’ bands have had to ‘cut’, ‘go back’ and ‘unplug’ to rediscover an authentic sound, The Gaither ‘Pure and Simple’ brand only required that Bill and his fellow vocalists carry on doing what they’ve done for the last 30 years – get together and make great heart lifting, soul stirring, foot tapping life affirming gospel music.

Taking the Gospel Message in Music to the World

And Gaither Music has never tried to infiltrate the church with their own music in any veiled attempt to grab commercial advantage from local worshipping congregations. They don’t need to because – again, the Gaither sound was born in local churches, grew up in local churches and has never left the local church. Where commercially biased Christian music has tried to break into church, the Gaithers and friends have done the opposite. They’ve taken the voice of gospel praise and worship outside and given it to the world.

Recorded on a stage set that reconstructs the down-home porch of Gaithers’ musical origins, and mixed with ‘on-the-road’ video footage, the twin volumes of ‘Pure and Simple’ give you words, melodies and harmonies that were born in the gospel and never left it behind. With acoustic arrangements written and performed with real heart and skill, this DVD brings you all the soul and spirit of the live, Nashville performance and leaves feeling better for having a share in this great revival sound. A Gaither music experience not to be missed; play the featured video, it’s all the convincing you’ll need. – Les Ellison
