Here is what some others have said about the album "the Family of Man":    

" Again you have hit the mark with a "STUNNING" cd, faultless and engaging. Story telling at its best in a myriad of styles. Rick for me you have certainly followed up with a gem of a album. Here at PBS 106-7 FM, , we are certainly going to love to play this album as we did "Evolution". You write about relationships and this cd will go a long way to build even more relationships with our listeners... Once again Rick thank-you for your stunning music and for generously sending us this cd. All the best and take care.... regards Peter Merrett PBS 106-7 FM Melbourne, Australia. "        


   "Rick Garvin returns with his second project “The Family of Man” following the first solo album “Evolution” which has achieved a high interest from the audience. And one wants to say that Rick Garvin’s new release is an even stronger work than his debut CD.

   The language of Rick Garvin’s music is very simple and at the same time it is breathtaking in the right way. The artist plays very melodious Americana country/folk guitar compositions and at first impression sings easy songs. But their special charm is in the deep sincerity of the artist’s performing and his laconic and very precise instrumental accompaniments.

   Some beautiful artists help Rick Garvin to record this project. I’d like to point out the expressive guitar of an outstanding player Wendell Ferguson among them.

   What does Rick Garvin sing about? His songs are about relationships between people and loved ones, friends and strangers, people and their society and even relationships with our planet. His newest album “The Family of Man” is indeed worth a listening. This is the music from the very roots."  Serge Kozlovsky

Great folk CD. I enjoyed it all and have aired several tracks and placed the CD in our new tracks box. I'm just heard "The Degenerate Song" on a fellow DJ's folk show as well. The title track is outstanding; fine guitar work, clever lyrics, and a classic folk voice. Larry Newman Country Folk Show KGLT Bozeman, MT
