This Week's Interesting CD Releases (February 12th, 2008)

Cinnamon Girl: Women Artists Cover Neil Young for Charity is my personal favorite release of the week for the following three reasons: I am a huge Neil Young fan; women with guitars make me weak; and all proceeds from the album go toward a great cause, Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer. Stream some of the tracks at the album's MySpace page.
