Whala....VISION OF HEAVEN was produced with the donations of time & money from gigs of local musician friends. This album is AWESOME.....Vocally & musicly. IT'S A MUST HAVE

Ron would be proud
Thanks to everyone that made this CD happen. Ron would be pround. It is a great CD. I find myself singing along to the songs. "Gimme, Gimme" is a favorite. Reminds me of the late great Levon Helm. This CD is full of some great bluesy rock n roll. We miss you!

A Vision of His Own!
This guy has soul and feel. His strength is that whether or not he wrote the song, he owns it! That's the mark of a true artist and Ronnie "Byrd" Foster was a true artist. He mixes rawness and sensitivity perfectly for a whole-hearted blues experience. This man was a master of his craft and it's wonderful to have this piece of work that he left behind for us!
