Occupy Wall Street CD to feature Crosby, Nash, Lucinda Williams and...Third Eye Blind? - Reverb

Occupy Wall Street CD will feature Crosby, Nash, Lucinda Williams and…Third Eye Blind?

Well, the lineup is a little random, but anything is better than nothing, right? Why is it that the protest singers of yore — Crosby, Nash — are still leading the fight in 2011? Where are the young troubadours when they are truly needed? And why, (seriously, why) do organizers assume Third Eye Blind will help propel the album’s lofty sales goals? See below for the full story.

NEW YORK (AP) — Occupy Wall Street will soon have a soundtrack.

Participants in the protest movement said Wednesday that they are putting out a benefit album with music from Third Eye Blind, David Crosby and Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, DJ Logic, Ladytron and others.

Jason Samel, a musician who is putting together the disc, says the goal is to raise between $1 million and $2 million to help fuel the movement that is protesting income disparity.
It will be available this winter, at first in digital form only.

    It’s wonderful to see people come together in solidarity across the world and for these musicians to lend their voices.  The Occupy Movement is NECESSARY for our citizens to expose the corruption which Big Business has infected our Government with.  Every single person occupying the streets and protesting Corporations is a hero and a patriot.  I was compelled to lend a hand and create some new posters for the movement which you can download for free on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/11/propaganda-for-occupy-movement.html
