Born in New Orleans, Christopher “Poppa” Foster began life in this world with deep roots in music. An entertainer from early childhood, he began playing piano at four years old and was writing songs by the time he was seven. Poppa is currently recognized as a lyrical stalwart and soulful composer in the community, sometimes referenced as the Allen Toussaint of Tulsa. You may catch him waking from a daydream to jot down a new epiphany or add an eclectic horn arrangement to an unfinished tune.

Poppa Foster has been specially presented in publications such as NPR and the Tulsa Voice, and has performed as the featured songwriter in various writers’ showcases, even being covered by other local artists on their own albums. He’s played the Cain’s Ballroom stage many times with a variety of projects, and has performed and recorded with a diverse group of local artists including Steve Pryor, John Moreland, Annie Ellicott and Wink Burcham. He played the part of Leon Russell with Russell’s touring band at a memorial celebration, playing piano and singing Russell’s songs. 

Foster’s newest project is Gravy Baby, Poppa Foster and The Grits debut vinyl record. A New-Orleans infused rock’n’roll album, Gravy Baby is delivering a completely unique package including a gateway fold with memorabilia, posters and extra surprises. Music videos for two singles are in production, due out later this year.

As a bonus, many of the top musicians in the mid-south combine to form The Grits, ensuring a high-energy and dynamic performance each time PF&TG take the stage. In front of the ensemble, Poppa Foster leads, ranging from greasy to theatrical, projecting his wide range of experiences and talents onto his songs and performances. “Exploit the Sight. Explode the Sound!”

Yellow Racket assigns condition based on the Goldmine Standard for grading records.
New (N) (Not typically included in the Goldmine Standard)
New records are purchased directly from the label, distributor, or registered wholesaler. Records are still sealed. Jackets may have slight shelf wear, but media has never been played.
Mint (M)
Still sealed. Never played. No observable flaws.  Items have been purchased secondhand.
Near Mint (NM)
A Near Mint (NM) record will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback. The record should show no obvious signs of wear.
The cover (and any additional packaging) has no creases, folds, seam splits, cut-out holes, or other noticeable defects.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
A Very Good Plus (VG+) record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it.
Defects should be more of a cosmetic nature, not affecting the actual playback as a whole. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches.
The disc and LP cover may have slight signs of wear, and may be gently marred by spindle marks, paper scuffs, wrinkled corners, etc.
Very Good (VG)
Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident, but will not overpower the music. Disc may have light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
Labels, jackets, and inserts will have visible cosmetic flaws such as wrinkles, cut-outs, slight splitting, etc. However, it will usually have less than a dozen minor flaws.
Good (G)
A record in Good condition can be played through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise, scratches, and visible groove wear. A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear, or other defects will be present.
While the record will be playable without skipping, noticeable surface noise and "ticks" will almost certainly accompany the playback. 
Poor (P), Fair (F)
The record may be cracked, badly warped, or won't play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeve may be water damaged, split, or heavily marred by wear and writing.
