Neil Young Covers Benefit Casting For Recovery

A group of talented women artists have released an album of Neil Young covers with all proceeds going to Casting For Recovery. Casting for recovery is an organization that promotes fly fishing as a means of recovery for vicitms of breast cancer.
Tanya Donelly, Britta Phillips, Lori McKenna, Jill Sobule with John Doe, Veruca Salt, Kristin Hersh, Josie Cotton, and The Watson Twins are just some of the outstanding artists covering Neil Young's most popular songs for charity on this 21 track Double-CD.

All proceeds from CINNAMON GIRL will be donated to
CASTING FOR RECOVERY in memory of Norine R. Spadaro (ALR founder, Joe Spadaro's mother). CASTING FOR RECOVERY is a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer. Casting for Recovery provides an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly-fishing, "a sport for life." The weekend retreats incorporate counseling, educational services and the sport of fly-fishing to promote mental and physical healing.
If the samples from their myspace page are any indication these sultry sounding ladies are making music that even a southern man wouldn't mind having around.
