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. http://www.pastestore.com/product/1228

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