2010/2011 Gift Of Music

Soul Tree Records uploaded the 2010/2011 GIFT OF MUSIC the other day. If you aren't familiar with this project, it's basically musicians doing requested covers to raise money for the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Each year money is given to charity, and individuals get the gift of having a song of their choice covered by an artist. And of course the songs are all uploaded for anyone to download for FREE. You can find MORE INFORMATION about the project over on the website.

I'm not going to review all the songs entered, but I will list a few of my favorites. It's kind of hard to review & judge people when they all had very different songs to cover. You should head over to Soul Tree Records to find your own favorites though.

Spin's Top 4:
