All proceeds from "Red Rocks Volume I: Carved in Stone" -- which features songs by Indigo Girls, Phish, Dave Matthews Band, the Allman Brothers Band, Blues Traveler, and more -- will go to the Preserve the Rocks Fund, which is dedicated to the restoration and upkeep of the venue.
"Carved in Stone" features 10 songs each hand-picked by the artists. "It was important that we represent Red Rocks with bands and songs that feel 'natural' to the venue. A number of artists on the CD have produced their own live Red Rocks releases and already have a connection to Red Rocks," said Erik Dyce, Director of Marketing for the City & County of Denver's Division of Theatres & Arenas, in a statement.
The tracks were recorded between 1994 and 2002 and also include contributions from Rickie Lee Jones, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, String Cheese Incident, and Little Feat. Seven of the album's recordings are seeing their first-ever commercial release on the compilation.
"Carved in Stone" is available for purchase from all 10 Best Buy locations in Colorado, and nationally on Bestbuy.com. It will also be sold at Red Rocks' Visitor Center.
