SEO - Would many posts linking back to my homepage with the Homepage's focus keyword be considered spammy?

Last Modified: 2017-03-24
Morning All,

In an attempt to make my homepage rank for the keyword "AA Speakers", almost every post on my website contains a link back to my homepage with "AA Speakers".  Totally duplicated content, I understand, but if you look at an example post (of which i have over 6000), you can see that the content is really the recording and whatever comments visitors make (e.g., http://www.recoveryaudio.org/aa-speaker-tapes/tom-i-steps-12-primm-nv-2007-12-07.

Would a few thousand instances of posts linking the focus keyword back to my homepage be considered spammy?

By the way, I might be interested in hiring someone in helping me make modifications to the site in order to capture the #1 ranking for AA Speakers (currently #3).  It already holds over 150 #1 keyword rankings, but I can't seem to get the most valuable keyword above #3 (and this site is far superior to #1 & 2 in terms of usability and content)
