Editor's note: Dee Dee Tibbits, the lifeblood of this group, still goes on. According to her website, Living Truth was formed in 1979 and performed until 1999 when the Tibbits focused full-time on their family. But you can still book the missus for a show. I'm not sure that she would be willing to play any of this material--seeing as she is quite an accomplished player of many instruments--but you never know. Heck, maybe Russ will even break out the old garb and sing and play along.
Also, since the Tibbits left the group another pair, Elroy and Tammie Kosters, has taken on the torch and now go by the moniker of Living Truth 2.
Other than the above the only information I could scrounge up was a news clipping from the Cass City Chronicle (9-13-1984) announcing a performance they held September 16, 1984. The original quartet was still together at that time along with Tammie Barbret.
By November 1, 1989 (Cass City Chronicle) it was just a trio sans the Ackermans. No word on what happened between those two dates spanning 5 years and I won't speculate either!
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
