Sincerest form of flattery
you mention the other versions of homecomings as knock offs, as if the Gaither Homecoming is an entirely original idea; isn’t the Gaither HC just a knock off of the Nitty Gritty Dirt bands “Will the Circle be Unbroken” album from the ’70’s ( and the two followups) this recording brought young and old artists together in a informal recording session, great stories told, great music produced.. I really think it is a stretch to think the Gaither Homecoming is an original idea that others are “knocking off”
Dan is right: Homecoming isn’t original (we’ve been round and round on this issue before so I won’t rehash it here), which is why I didn’t claim it was. Only that it had been imitated. A knock-off isn’t a sign that the thing being imitated is original, but rather that it is/was a success.
Solomon was right: there’s nothing new under the sun, and he probably ripped that line off from his father. What matters is that everyone attributes the phrase to him.Email this Post
