“Of Hands And Hearts: Music For The Tsunami Disaster Fund” to be released March 15, 2005

Ohahonesheet The Asian Tsunami was a disaster of epic proportions and the response to the needs of the people in the countries affected has been overwhelmingly positive. There have been and continue to be numerous fundraising events put on for the victims of this tradgedy and one that caught my eye is the “Of Hands And Hearts: Music For The Tsunami Disaster Fund” double CD compilation that will be released March 22nd, 2005 by Norwalk Distributors. This CD compilation features a lot of great bands pumping out a ton of great music with a lot of it unreleased and is a bargain at the suggested price of $13.98. Even more importantly, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this CD go to the humanitarian organization CARE so in essence there really is no reason why you wouldn’t want to buy it. It should be available at your finer indie record stores and at most online stores including the wonderful Not Lame Records. For more information on each of the bands and links to their websites check out the “Of Hearts and Minds” website at Norwalk Distributors. Great music raising money for a needy cause is something that The Rock and Roll Report and I am sure you will always support. Mark March 15th, 2005 on your calender and pick this CD up. I know that I will. The full track listing is:
