Will you allow me to suggest a gift for the discriminating music fan on your list?

Please consider "To Kate, a benefit for Kate's Sake" It's a collection of 15 songs by top alternative-country and roots-rock performers, recorded to benefit Kate Kirk, a three-year-old girl living in Nashville, Tennessee. Kate, and her six-year-old sister Caroline, both suffer from a rare genetic disease. Tragically, by the time Caroline was diagnosed, it was too late for her, but Kate has been approved for a potentially life saving bone marrow transplant.

Her family needs to raise an estimated 150-thousand dollars to pay for the transplant. Their plight reached Garry Tallent, bass player of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band, who came up with the idea of producing the star-studded album with performers including Jeff Black, Steve Earle, Buddy and Julie Miller, Raul Malo, John Prine, Joe Ely and more.

Trust me on this one ---even if you don't recognize those names, you'll find something to like on this CD. And it's for a good cause: all the royalties go to the Children's Organ Transplant Association, and to "For Kate's Sake."

you can purchase this from the fine people at Paste.

You could also check itunes, I'm not sure if it's there.
