CD for Katrina survivors

Lutheran-Episcopal Services of Mississippi is a beneficiary of a CD, Forgotten but Not Gone . It showcases the talents of Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Lee Roy Parnell and others. Nashville music industry songwriter Ric Kipp and producers Phillip and Rebecca Wolfe brought together country, folk, blues, gospel and Cajun music artists to raise funds for continuing recovery work after Hurricane Katrina.

Thanks for making your readership aware of this terrific album and the good work it supports. Giving due credit, it should be noted that Phillip Wolfe is not just a producer -- he wrote or co-wrote nearly half the album's songs and performs on eight of the tracks. Several of the artists are winners of Grammy or Americana Music Association awards, and all donated their time and talent to the album's creation. Also worth noting: every single penny of sales is going to the two organizations selected as partners -- Lutheran-Episcopal Services of Mississippi and Episcopal Community Services of Louisiana.  The album is great musically, but also great as a testament to the power of volunteerism and grassroots activism in bringing help to others.
