Richard T. Hall

Taking it back to 1983...
These cats are too fonkie! If you like bopping your head to a mpls track, you've gotta get this! No studio stuff here. Back when cats played everything, including the wall. Keep it coming...

R Williams

Funktastic CD
Excellent LIVE funk album featuring the cream of Minneapolis musicians....If you like your mpls funk you'll love this!!!

Stoff

The Truth is that it's really good
This CD is a must have for MPLSound lovers. The band is great and funky. (St Paul is a wonderful human-being and kind enough to let us listen to the forthcoming The Family 2.0 rough version. Hope a real CD will be release on CD-Baby)

Kick Ass!!!
Got my copy of Live By The Truth about three weeks ago and what can I say, but WOW. This is some serious Funk and the cd has been in my rotation non-stop ever since. The band consist of group of talented musicians who have worked at one time or another with Prince, The Time, The Family and other gifted musicians.


Here is the line-up
St. Paul Peterson (The Time, The Family): bass, vocals, keyboards, guitar; Kip Blackshire (Prince): vocals, keys, guitar; Chance Howard (Prince): keys, vocals; Odell (Mint Condition): guitar, vocals; Jellybean Johnson (The Time, The Family): guitar; Jerry Hubbard (The Time, Jesse Johnson): bass, keyboards, guitar, vocals; Eric Leeds (Prince, The Family): saxophone; Donnie LaMarca (St. Paul, Giorgia, Ann Nesby, Jonny Lang): keys, vocals; and Kirk Johnson (Prince): drums, vocals.

The album starts off with a trio of old school funk jams that do exactly that. They Jam. Next comes a Family mini concert. St Paul is in fine form with Jellybean Johnson and Eric Leeds making making me think its 1985 again. High fashion(which should have been a Time song) is always a favorite and Mutiny is FONKY as hell. The cd is worth the price just for that, but wait there's more. Chance takes over vocals for Jungle Love. Very Cool to have 2 guys from the Time mixing it up(Chance singing, Jellybean on Guitar)

Next is the madhouse classic Ten followed by Chance doing his best Larry Blackmon imitation for She's Strange. The album closes with a trio of Prince songs. D.M.S.R. is very similar to the version done on the Musicology tour(which is a good thing). This is a serious Jam and probably the highlight of the album for me. Just when you think it can't go on, BAM, Erotic City come alive. The album closes with a spirited version of America.


I would highly recommend this album to anybody that is fan of the Minneapolis sound or old school funk in general. Buy it. You won't be disappointed

Funk lives!
Minneapolis funk at it's best! This is the funkiest album I've heard in a long time. Very groovy live performance form brilliant musicians. Don't miss it!

Tony V Steele

The Truth "LIVE"
Great performance and musicianship on this cd. The band is tight almost reminding of the original Time band from the "What time is it?" days.My favorite cut on the cd is the Madhouse jam "Ten" they truly do rock that song. This is a must for all funk fans and lovers of live music.

David Walmsley

Yes! Funk is back!
I heard some these tracks and I gotta say, funk is about to make a grand return! Please don't make this a one shot deal! I support funk and what it stands for.
