I have just ordered the CD album so please do check back in some days for the relative detailed entry. (Ed.: album arrived on September, 29 and you can find the relative post here).
A tribute live show was held Wednesday night, September the 7th, at the Music Box Theater in Hollywood, with several artists who contributed tracks to the album and other musicians. House band included Lee on bass, Russ Kunkel on drums and Waddy Wachtel on guitar. The show was taped for airing in December on PBS television stations. You can check out a report of the evening here.
