Gospel Truth According to Leon[CD]
Leon Laudenbach The Gospel Truth ... According to Leon I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Leon Laudenbach is one of the best and most underrated singer/songwriters in Central Minnesota. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Laudenbach consistently surrounds himself with some of the best musical talent in St. Cloud. Even so, you can have all the support you want, but if the songs don't cut it, the music still will stink. Laudenbach has recorded under a number of monikers, including Taboo Blue, Buddwa Mambos and Lee Harvey and the Buddwas. This time around, it's just plain old Leon, or more properly, 'The Gospel Truth ... According to Leon.' From the name, you might think Laudenbach has recorded his first gospel album. Instead, he sticks to a roots rock vein that blends rock, folk and blues. There are a lot of great songs here, but some of my early favorites include the bluesy '2012,' the countryfied 'The Good Times and the Bad, Bad, Bad' and the endearing 'A Path on the Outside.' On 'The Gospel Truth ... According to Leon,' Laudenbach and company succeed in every aspect of what they're trying to accomplish. They're not in search of fame and fortune. Oh no, these are just a bunch of blue collar musicians looking for answers and friendship in music - and having a good time pulling it together in a record. 'The Gospel Truth ... According to Leon' is available at the Electric Fetus. And that's the gospel truth ... according to Karl.
