for lee jackson in space

"This tribute album came together in love and honor of Lee Jackson, writer, music fan, dear friend, who passed in late March 2012 after a struggle with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This collection of songs, nearly all of which are new or previously unreleased, comes from the many bands and musicians who Lee not only covered and celebrated with such passion, but also in many cases befriended over many years of correspondence, concert and festival attendance and more. 12 hours of music/94 bands (including contributions from Valerio Cosi, Six Organs Of Admittance, Charalambides, Pelt, Roy Montgomery, Helena Espvall, Head of Wantastiquet, Charlatan, Tara Burke, Mike Tamburo, Theo Angell, R Keenan Lawler, etc.)

The album's liner notes contain full information about each song as well as thoughts from Lee himself about the contributing artists, taken from his writing work. All profits will go to the Texas chapter of the ALS Association. Please feel free to join our Facebook discussion group if you'd like to learn more about the remarkable man who we all dearly miss; there is also a direct link to this album in Facebook itself"

On June 5th, Brad Rose from Foxy Digitalis interviewed Travis Johnson, Mats Gustafsson, and Ned Raggett. These guys compiled the monolithic compilation "For Lee Jackson In Space"
