Various Artists :: Songs for Slim

by

songs-for-slim_coverBob ‘Slim’ Dunlap was gitarist van The Replacements, een van de beste bands ooit. Daarnaast maakte hij een paar sublieme soloplaten. Februari 2012 kreeg hij een ernstige beroerte en zoals dat in Amerika gaat, dan is er geen afdoende verzekering. Dus schoten muzikale vrienden hem te hulp en begonnen singletjes te maken die per opbod verkocht werden. Die nummers zijn nu verzameld op Songs For Slim – Rockin Here Tonight: A Benefit Compilation For Slim Dunlap. The Replacements, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Jakob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy zijn een handvol bekende namen. Maar ook de onbekendere goden zijn top met hun interpretaties van de Slim-muziek. Twee CD’s met heel goede muziek voor een heel goed doel.

When guitarist Slim Dunlap suffered a debilitating stroke last year, the music community rallied around him and came to his aid. His former band The Replacements reformed and headed into the studio in support of their old friend. The resulting session, the Songs For Slim EP, consisting of five covers, including two of Slim’s songs, was released in January of this year as a limited edition auction-only 10-inch record and propelled a nearly year long project to help pay forSlim’s long term medical care.
