Music for Hope CD: Buy It, Enjoy It

It's been a while since I wrote/published an entry pertaining mainly to music here, but this one begs to be written. The "Music for Hope CD" for sale by Good Charamel Records is an excellent benefit CD, and if you don't have it, you should buy it now.
The CD offers 11 songs by Buffalo/Western New York artists for only $5, and the proceeds benefit Summit Educational Resources, which works with children with autism, and the Music Is Art Foundation, which was set up by Goo Goo Dolls bassist Robby Takac to help schools with serious financial needs provide musical instruments and programs.
The music is mostly darn good and quite varied; as well as a live Goo Goo Dolls song, "Here Is Gone," there is the CD's best song, "The Answer," by the Last Conservative, a raw rocker on which TJ Zindle sings about a telephone call he wanted but never received from a friend who committed suicide. Other standout songs include tunes by Ani DiFranco with Amungus, Takac's industrial music project (a remix of DiFranco's "Napoleon"), Terry Sullivan, Agent Me, the Juliet Dagger and Alison Pipitone. Check out the Good Charamel Records link along the right side of this page for more information.
