". . . Filled with gardens, guitars, flowers and fun, Rick Foster's video, At Home With the Guitar, blends live solo classical guitar performances with Christian family values and a nearly vanished mode of American rural life. Set against a backdrop of country living in the mountains of Southern Oregon, Rick and his family work, play, and enjoy the bounties of God's creation. In this musical celebration of nature and family you are invited to sit back, catch your breath, and enjoy a peaceful 80 minutes of not only beautiful scenery, but also some of the most beautiful guitar playing this side of heaven."
Precious Memories 1981-2002 gives viewers a look at concert performances throughout Rick's career, as well as intimate "at home" footage of several pieces not featured on his albums. This collection captures the spirit of Rick's concerts through his personal testimony, performances with daughters Jody and Tobi, and solo close ups of his favorite and most requested tunes.
Also included are rare performances by two of the world's foremost sacred guitarists — Jonathan Burchfield and Ray Cummins.
Video samples of these performances can be found on YouTube by doing a search for "Rick Foster."

"At Home With the Guitar is one of those delightful treasures I just happened to uncover that I'd like to share with everyone. Rick Foster brings to life classical guitar playing at its finest. If you just got home from a hard day on the freeway, put this video on, prop your feet up, and reflect on God's goodness. It might add years to your life and it will probably make you a more pleasant person all evening long. And that - in itself - could make this guitar video worth purchasing."
The Church Music Report - April 1993
"Rick Foster's video, Precious Memories 1981-2002, documents his career in performances, as well as in glimpses of the family life that figures so prominently in his music. It's a veritable time capsule, taking the viewer from '70's gospel television programs, to church stages across America, to the casual atmosphere of the Foster's country home in Oregon. Foster shares the stage, as well, with dedicated segments showcasing the performances of other guitarists, whose work brings to light the myriad ways the genre has expanded. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a bit of time travel as you are entertained by one of the guitar world's most important artists.
"Rick Foster's pioneering work in gospel guitar has, without question, reached far and wide, delighting audiences and players alike. From Chet Atkins to Christopher Parkening, Foster's considerable influence has found its mark in significant places."
