Playing For Change

Sun, 2009-05-03 22:50 -- Ray

Increasingly, technology is making it easier and cheaper for people to collaborate in new and interesting ways. What we have seen in the recent years is probably just the tip of the iceberg. I'm looking forward what the next 10-20 years will bring.

With the help of musicians from around the world, the guys at Playing For Change have made some great recordings. Check out these fantastic videos of Stand By Me and Don't Worry.

Watching these videos led me to want to find out more about Grandpa Elliot. Check out illegibleme and the NY Times for more information.

This version of Stand By Me is without any (of my) doubts the best Ben King version this dog has heard in a long time. I hear there is a documentary also or soon-to-be available?
