about

This tribute album came together in love and honor of Lee Jackson, writer, music fan, dear friend, who passed in late March 2012 after a struggle with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This collection of songs, nearly all of which are new or previously unreleased, comes from the many bands and musicians who Lee not only covered and celebrated with such passion, but also in many cases befriended over many years of correspondence, concert and festival attendance and more. The album's liner notes contain full information about each song as well as thoughts from Lee himself about the contributing artists, taken from his writing work.

As of December 31, 2012, active fundraising via this project was concluded per the agreement of its organizers. All profits raised were sent to the Texas chapter of the ALS Association; web.alsa.org/DFW2012 has more information about their continuing work, and we highly encourage you to consider donating to them directly in Lee's memory if you enjoy the music that has been presented here, as well as investigating the further work of the many artists who contributed. We will maintain this site as we can as a continuing memorial to Lee.

Please feel free to join our Facebook discussion group at www.facebook.com/groups/323110634410498/ if you'd like to learn more about the remarkable man who we all dearly miss; there is also a direct link to this album in Facebook itself at www.facebook.com/ForLeeJacksonInSpace
