★★★★ “A big part of the evening’s enjoyment, in fact were Foster’s narrations of the back stories of the songs and recounting and reflecting on his own musical life at the equivalent times… Especially being played live by one of Adelaide’s finest singers. He has such a lyrical and engaging voice and a flowing gentle feel on guitar… And it was a real treat to hear that beautiful musical soul sing and play and tell his stories once again.” Michael Coghlan, The Clothesline
