Here's more of what the music community is saying about Rick Foster's Remembrance of Chet Atkins:  

 "As I listen to Rick Foster's Remembrance of Chet Atkins, I'm reminded of Chet's wide-ranging musical interests—his love of not only country music, but of classical, jazz, and even the old hymns, all of which are represented in this special collection. But more importantly, I realize that this record is about Rick Foster's love for Chet Atkins, his longtime friend and mentor. In this gentle, almost reverential, album, it's obvious that the pieces Rick chose are those that resonate most deeply within his own spirit, making the performances especially heartfelt. I can't recall when Rick's playing was ever better.
    "The album's title brings to mind a conversation I had with Chet some ten years ago. 'The best way to be remembered,' he said, 'is through your music.' Chet wanted to be remembered. And Rick's memories are some of the fondest and finest."

John Schroeter, Founder, Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine

"Rick Foster is a wonderful guitarist. His playing is characterized by purity of voicing and cleanliness of attack and style. His latest CD presents the best of Rick and offers a little bit of everything. In addition to the gospel favorites, Rick incorporates a number of classics also performed with masterful precision. I highly recommend this CD for the casual listener or guitar buff alike."

Bill Bay, President, Mel Bay Publications

"Rick, your new recording is very good—some of the nicest playing and tone I've heard."
John Standefer, U.S. National Fingerpicking Champion
"A great album by Rick reflecting his biggest influences and inspirations."
George Winston, Dancing Cat
"Your new CD is wonderful, Rick—great sound, great playing, great arrangements."
Scott Tennant, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, 2005 Grammy winner
"Rick Foster is a master craftsman on the guitar. His playing is both an act of worship and a wonderfully restful experience for the listener. His latest labor of love pays homage to Chet Atkins, who had a tender place for songs like these. Here they are played with great sensitivity and heart on the very guitars Chet played and enjoyed so much. Keep it up Rick—Chet would be proud."
Buddy Greene, Musician, Singer/Songwriter, Composer of Mary Did You Know?
"I REALLY enjoyed your CD. You have that rare ability to transport your listener's soul to a very special place. It was a treat to hear. What beautiful music!"
Douglas Niedt, First Place winner—Chet Atkins International Guitar Competition
"Often it's gentle musical messages that have the most power. That's why I love this new CD of hymn classics from Rick Foster. The strains of his guitar inspire, refresh, and help fix our eyes on the Savior whom he honors. I listen to it all the time!"
Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends
"There is some soothing power that comes over you when listening to this simple yet rich, pure, music!"
