The Allman Brothers Band, the Hold Steady, Primal Scream and Grandaddy are among the artists that will rerelease albums on limited edition pink vinyl as part as this year’s Ten Bands One Cause fundraiser.
Umphrey’s McGee, Less Than Jake, Plain White T’s, Tom Tom Club, Bush and Minus the Bear will also participate in the event that benefits the Red Door Community — formerly known as Gilda Club’s NYC — which aims to provide welcoming communities for people who are diagnosed with cancer, as well as for caregivers and people who have lost someone to cancer.
This year’s slate begins September 24th with pink vinyl reissues of Minus the Bear’s Infinity Overhead, Tom Tom Club’s Downtown Rockers and Grandaddy’s The Sophtware Slump… on a wooden piano. More albums will arrive during October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month) and through November 19th.
“Grandaddy is honored to participate in Ten Bands One Cause,” Grandaddy’s Jim Fairchild said in a statement. “Doing something we love and having it help foster healing, conversation and community for people living through cancer is about as positive as music can be. Thank you Red Door Community for your powerful work.” Other highlights include pink repressings of Allman Brothers’ Bear’s Sonic Journals: Fillmore East, February 1970 and the Hold Steady’s latest LP Open Door Policy.
