THE TRIBUTES ARE HEARD: Since Alejandro Escovedo was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and forced to retire from daily music making, one hell of a tribute album has been coalescing to help him with medical costs. The album, Por Vida, is due out on July 13th (US) and includes stuff by Lucinda Williams, Cowboy Junkies, Ian McLagan, Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey side project the Minus 5, Son Volt, Jon Langford and Sally Timms, Chris Stamey... this is starting to sound like the cast of a Royal Command Performance, if the Queen was twenty-five and shopped at Rough Trade... Sheila E, Whiskeytown... and so it goes on.
