From the Vault: The Booth Brothers, "Home Where I Belong"

From the Vault: The Booth Brothers, "Home Where I Belong" June 12, 2015

It gives me great pleasure to brighten Youtube with the (in my opinion) definitive cover of this B. J. Thomas classic. The Brothers don’t seem to have a studio recording of it, which is interesting since they obviously cut a studio track for themselves to use on this performance.
This arrangement hews fairly closely to the Gaither Vocal Band’s interpretation, but the Booths’ harmonies are just unbeatable on this. I would also rate it as one of Ronnie Booth’s best lead vocals. I’ve often thought that in a different era, Ronnie could have had a great solo career in country music. Truly one of the most naturally gifted vocalists I’ve ever heard.

I’m not sure who the gentleman in freeze frame is at around 2:43 (presumably an acquaintance of the group who had passed).
If you’ve enjoyed this, keep coming back for more gems from the vault!

    Thanks for doing these! Ronnie’s voice is perfect for this song.
    My very favorite song from that project is “While Ages Roll.”

  • I can’t confirm this, but I wonder if the freeze-frame is of one of the original Booth Brothers.

  • Lydia

    He is their uncle, as I recall. The DVD is dedicated to him. He died I think it says just five days after the concert, and I think he was present at the concert.

  • I remember this now. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Warren Smith

    Shout out to my friend Pat Terry, who wrote this song.

  • Scott Smith

    Either they sang this to a recorded track OR they were lip-syncing. For some reason they do not sell this track on their website. A friend at church wants to sing this, but I have not been able to remove the vocals from the song with any software tool, since the vocals dominate the song. What a shame we cannot buy the track.
