Double-disc benefit CD set for November.
Coldplay, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt and Barbra Streisand are among the acts appearing on a double-disc benefit CD being released through the EMI, Sony BMG, Universal, Warner and Concord labels. The project, expected for mid-November, will aid those ravaged by the recent Rita and Katrina hurricanes.
"Hurricane Relief: Come Together Now" will include new material like the previously-unreleased Streisand track, "I Believe," along with live versions of Coldplay's "Fix You," James Brown's "Try Me" and John's "I'm Still Standing," which he recorded in New Orleans.
The Recording Industry Assoc. of America (RIAA) will donate its entire net proceeds on behalf of its member companies and all of the artists, publishers and songwriters involved to the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund.
Other featured artists include Harry Connick Jr., Fats Domino and John Fogerty.
