~~ okay, i admit to my blatant plagarism here. i was gonna mention
this on the list, but i saw this on the newsgroup, written up so well,
i figured why not just steal it. ... the cd is great, by the way! :)

haven't seen any mention of this here yet, so i'll pass on the info.
the indigo girls have a live track on the new 99x live x cd.  {99x is
an atlanta radio station, wnnx, 99.7fm.}  all tracks on this cd come
from "live x", a weekly show on 99x that features an artist in a
stripped-down environment doing a half-hour set in front of a crowd of
about 50 people.  proceeds from this album go to noah's ark, a
children's home in metro atlanta.  cover art is by david bowie.  track
listing is as follows:

shawn colvin -- sunny came home
tonic -- open up your eyes
matchbox 20 -- push
marcy playground -- sex & candy
blur -- song 2
k's choice - not an addict
michael penn -- fly
indigo girls -- shame on you
david bowie -- dead man walking
the wallflowers -- three marlenas
squirrel nut zippers -- hell
cake -- frank sinatra
fiona apple -- criminal
love spit love -- long, long time
third eye blind -- how's it going to be
world party -- is it like today
sheryl crow -- home

this album is only available at metro atlanta blockbuster music
stores, and costs $14.99.

the last live x album, rainn songs, raised $82,000 for the rape,
abuse, and incest national network, and sold out within two weeks.
rainn is the only nationwide toll-free number available for victims of
these crimes.  it was started in 1994 by tori amos, in response to her
fans' stories of rape and abuse.  the toll-free number for rainn is

{in fact, if anyone would like a copy of the rainn songs album, i have
one extra copy.  {i bought some for folks, but had someone back out on
me at the last minute. :/ }  the price on this is $18 {$14.99 is the
album price, plus tax, plus shipping -- i'm -not- making a profit on
this.  track listing available upon request.}

hope this helps someone out there! :)
