If you like your musical purchase decisions to have an extra reason beyond the music being good, then you should definitely check out this beautiful 13 track compilation of Will Stratton covers (well, 12 covers and 1 live recording of Will himself). All proceeds from the compilation go towards helping Will cover the medical bills that are accumulating in his battle against a recently diagnosed cancer.

Will Stratton was diagnosed with stage III testicular cancer last September, and has spent the better part of the last year fighting his way back to recovery. He’s hard at work on a new record, which we all can’t wait to hear. It’s been an honor and a privilege to be able to contribute to and help usher along this benefit compilation. The love and enthusiasm all the artists have put into the project has been totally inspiring. We hope you enjoy the music. All proceeds go directly to Will. We’re hoping to help him deal with some of the medical bills from his treatment, and get him back on his feet as soon as possible.

It's sad to hear that such a young talent (check out the originals and more on his Bandcamp pageis facing such a tough battle, but seeing a bunch of people get together in support of Will's fight reverse that sad feeling.
