An evocatively 'naked' version of
"Let It Be" performed live-off-the-floor by Allison Crowe
is among the tracks on this Beatles tribute/benefit compilation
released on February 9, 2004 by NYC's Art
Monkey Records. This CD commemorates the 40th anniversary of the
Beatles in America and features contributions by legends, stalwarts,
and new bloods of the DIY, indie, alternative and punk rock
communities from North America's east coast to west coast,
Dee Ramone, one of the pioneers of punk rock; More featuring Arion Salazar of San Francisco's Third
Eye Blind; and Sylvain Sylvain, co-founder of proto-punk glam
rock legends, The New York Dolls. Song clips of all 21 album tracks are available on the Art
Monkey Records site.
All proceeds go to Adopt-A-Minefield which raises awareness and funds to clear landmines and rehabilitate landmine survivors in many countries around the world. "Clear a path to a safer world."
