Ken LaBrie - Lost & Found 
Ken LaBrie has one of those rich smooth voices, but at least he can alter it to suit the mood. Lost & Found has some very traditional material (such as ‘My Tribute’ and a hymns medley), but there are also a few notable light-rock singer/songwriter moods, like the organ-backed title track, the soft acoustic ballad ‘Jesus Died’ or the folky ‘I’ve Got Something’. ‘The Medicine Bottle God’ talks about our tendency to use God only when we need him, after which we put him back on the shelf. One cut in particular really stands out: ‘Listen’ has a harder rock edge that features heavy electric guitar and organ passages. Ken on lead and rhythm guitar, others on drums, harmonica, bass, piano, organ and additional lead guitar. A few catalog numbers down from the same-label Concrete Rubber Band lp. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
