Rocking In The Free World Shadow for Charity

For todays' shadow, I found a really cool cover of Neil Young's "Rockin' In The Free World".

In 1989 Neil released this classic...

 

 

The Joseph Arthur version I found sounds NOTHING like the original, nor does it sound like anything I'd expect to hear from Joseph.  It's more like a Bat For Lashes, Moby style remix.  I love it.

 

 

When I found out the song was featured on an album for charity, I dug deeper.  

This song is featured on the new COOL FOR SCHOOL album on iTunes. The album crated by Gift Horse Project founder, activist and paper cranes' front woman, Rain Phoenix, brings together artists covering "school themed" songs.

All of the profits go to The Lunchbox Fund charity. Founded by Topaz Page-Green in 2005, The Lunchbox Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a daily meal for disadvantaged and at-risk students in South African township high schools.

You can buy it on iTUNES here.
