Announcing the Wayside Waifs Charity CD
Faithful readers of this blog will know I've been working on compiling tracks for a CD to raise money for Wayside Waifs. The CD is featuring holiday tracks by independent/unsigned bands, most of which are new and/or previously unreleased. Some artists were unable to record new tracks and showed their support by providing existing tracks. Not everything submitted could make the cut...there were quality issues with some tracks, other tracks just did not seem to fit in with the rest of the mix, and some of the previously released tracks were removed from the compilation to make room for the new tracks artists were able to provide.
This CD will be available for purchase soon directly from me or online at CD Baby, both in physical format and as a download. 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity of the Wayside Waifs of Kansas City. In the coming weeks, I will also be talking to the fine folks at Wayside Waifs to sell the CD in their lobby and also to promote through local TV, as Wayside Waifs has some spots on the local news channels. A few stores in the area look like likely candidates to sell physical copies as well directly to folks. More details will be posted as I know them.
Your Christmas will be complete now...the tracks are in, the final selections have been made. Here is the official track list:
