Slim Dunlap, former lead guitarist of the Replacements, suffered a serious stroke in February 2012. What started off as a few people trying to find a way to help a dear friend survive a medical crisis has turned into a true musical celebration. By having various artists cover Slim's excellent-but-overlooked original songs and auctioning them via limited edition 45s, the Songs For Slim series raised nearly $150,000 to help support Slim's family and offset the high cost of medical care. All of those tracks have been collected on a 2-CD set featuring 28 songs, including 10 new bonus recordings that weren't part of the auction series. The bonus material runs the gamut from Slim's classic songs to deep cuts to Slim-inspired original compositions. All proceeds go to the Slim Dunlap Fund. Features songs by The Replacements, Jeff Tweedy, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, John Doe, Soul Asylum, Frank Black, Deer Tick, Lucero, and more.
