"Leo Gillespie" 1991




















Here's a tape I bought about 1993 in Aalborg, DK, Europe.
Leo Gillespie is a street singer (/ songwriter) who sold his
tapes right out of his guitar case. Guess I paid about 5 US§
back then.

In this time you couldn't find anything about Leo in the I*net
and while time passed I thought I have to go back to Scandinavia
to get some more of his music.

Somewhen I found a site who offers a CD with songs by Leo - but
it's just a site without any working link ...
(http://www.cbm-booking.com/)

Then, about 3 years ago a friend wrote me that Leo is in town - somewhere
in Norway. It wasn't easy but finally he managed to get me two CDs of
Leo: "From The Heart" and "Lost In Laos". Three of the mentioned bonus
tracks (below) are from this releases.

None of those albums are still available - so if you like Leo's Music
(... well, that overproduced stuff he sells today ... ;-) ) - buy as
long it is available ...

If you like this OOP album here: There's an addy at his web-site where
you'd be able to send him 5 bucks and a greeting ...

Another site a friend brought my attention to:

http://www.reverbnation.com/leogillespie

Some good songs from Leo as well.

BTW: If you like one of the songs - it's worth to have a look into your "Temporary Internet Files" folder ... just look for files with some MB and rename them into .MP3, double click them and have a listen ...

Leo, thanks for stepping by!

Your music is loved and you are welcome all over the world!

Thanks for so much great music - and maybe someday you'll make an album without too many friends again ??

Sending you my love and a big hug!

I saw Leo many years ago when he play in the band "The Permanent Cure". It's nice to meet him in the web and in this blog now. Best wishes from Braunschweig, Germany

PS. I know I own another MC from this time - it's time to look for it.

Hi, I just wanna add that the song "Tricks of the fish" is on the "From my heart" CD. It says "Ukendt" unknown album on the WMA-file. I know this for sure since it was recorded in my basement :)

All the best to you all!
