Album Stream: Various Artists - The 30th Annual John Lennon Tribute Live from the Beacon Theatre NYC
Seventeen artists including Jackson Browne, Patti Smith and blues legend Taj Mahal gathered together in New York, N.Y. on Nov. 12, 2010 to pay tribute to John Lennon. The former Beatles frontman’s catalog was dissected from the early years all the way into his solo career including renditions of “God” by Meshell Ndegeocello, “Come Together” by Taj Mahal, Deva Mahal & Steph Brown and a chilling, mellow version of “Help!” by Alejandro Escovedo—which we premiered this past Wednesday.
The album is set for release on Nov. 15, with proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross for its ongoing Earthquake and Tsunami Relief efforts. You can stream the album below.
