Elton John, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Robert Plant and Willie Nelson have put their own spin on Fats Domino hits for an upcoming charity tribute album, due Sept. 25 via Vanguard. The double-disc "Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino" includes tracks like "I Want to Walk You Home," "Blueberry Hill," "Ain't That a Shame" and "I'm Walkin'," with proceeds to be donated to New Orleans public school music programs and to rebuilding Domino's Hurricane Katrina-ravaged home.

Additionally, B.B. King, Tom Petty, Lenny Kravitz, Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Ben Harper (with the Skatalites), Toots and the Maytals, Taj Mahal, Herbie Hancock, Corinne Bailey Rae and Bonnie Raitt contributed tracks. John can be heard on "Blueberry Hill," while McCartney tackles "I Want To Walk You Home" and Petty sings "I'm Walkin'." The album also includes John Lennon's previously released version of "Ain't That a Shame."

Domino, 79, donated a portion of proceeds from his last album, 2006's "Alive and Kickin'," to New Orleans musician non-profit Tipitina's Foundation. Organizers at Tipitina's, in turn, organized "Goin' Home" in his honor. "The idea came to me last September when I was trying to come up with a way to thank Fats for donating. I also wanted to create a project that could shine the spotlight on our city's unique music culture," says Tipitina's Foundation executive director Bill Taylor.
