This is a two CD release to aid the Tsunami Victims. I got mine a few days ago. There are some good pices on the disc, but it's all about the cause anyway.

 

 

Like countless other online communities, the membership of the Spock’s Beard message board was deeply saddened by the events this Christmastime in South Asia. After much discussion, an idea was born – “The Tsunami Projekt.” As a group, the forum decided to produce a CD made up of progressive music submitted by forum members, with all of the proceeds going to aid relief in the affected areas. But, upon seeing the tremendous support the project was garnering among their fans, several of today’s progressive rock superstars generously agreed to contribute music to the project as well.

Artists contributing to the fan-based project include Nick D’Virgilio (Spock’s Beard, Tears for Fears), multi-instrumental solo artist Neal Morse (former front man for Spock’s Beard and Transatlantic), bassist Randy George (Ajalon, Neal Morse’s band), Mark McCrite (Rocket Scientists), New York-based progressive band IZZ and British proggers IQ. George’s band Ajalon will be providing a song that features Rick Wakeman on keyboards.  Jimmy Keegan - tour drummer for Spock's Beard, is also contributing a brand new track to be written and produced by his brand new Power Trio project.  All of the artists generously donated their time and music for this project.

Conceived by forum member Barry Thompson, the project will encompass two discs of great progressive music, comprised mainly of contributions from the board members’ own bands and musical projects. The board has many experienced musicians among its membership, from all parts of the globe, making this a truly international project. In addition, forum member Brian Cobb will produce the album, Barry Thompson will maintain the website and Martin Kornick will provide artwork production.  Martin was the person who recruited most of the professional artists involved in the projekt.

On a similar theme, my copy of the Progaid single "All around the world" arrived today. It has 5 different versions on it, including a 12 minute "Definitive mix", plus a video track.

Musically, the single is a bit too like other such aid songs, but as you say Danbo, it's all about the cause anyway.
