Lazlo's Corner

This year's Banding Together benefit concerts for the Spondylitis Association Of America is coming together so well. It is a lot of work (even with the extra help I've had this year (thanks!), but so worth it to raise money to help find a cure for a disease that plagues my wife, as well as about 1 in 200 people.

Over the last few weeks I've listened to this year's Banding Together compilation more times than I can count, and not once have I gotten tired of listening to any of it.

All 32 songs on this year's compilation are previously unreleased. I cannot thank all of these artists enough for submitting such amazing songs that they have not made available anywhere else.

My hope is to have the compilation available directly from within the next week. Any donation of $10 or more will get you a download.

Here is the track listing:

1. Shotgun BIll - "My Girl"
2. A Halo Called Fred - "Not My Circus Not My Monkey"
3. Josh Bicknell - "Walking On"
4. Catherine Wacha - "Strait-Jacket"
