Great music, great cause
Classic R&B composer/performer Curtis Mayfield was recently paralyzed by a freak accident (a piece of stage equipment was blown into the singer during an outdoor show). To help offset his medical bills, a broad group of admirers has put together a collection of some of his best songs.
From Delbert McClinton's Texas blues version of "He Will Break Your Heart" to Angela Strehli's soulful "Got a Right to Cry" to the doo-wop stylings of Huey Lewis & the News on a cover of "It's Alright," this album crackles with great music dedicated to a great cause.
