Let All The Children Boogie: A Tribute to David Bowie
Spare the Rock Records, formed in 2010, has released three albums, all benefit albums. As of the end of 2013, the label has donated over $115,000 in proceeds.
In November 2017 Spare The Rock Records released Let All The Children Boogie: A Tribute To David Bowie, an all-ages album dedicated to the music and artistry of David Bowie. The album features new interpretations of his work from a diverse group of artists with the mission of sharing his legacy and messages with a new generation.
Proceeds from the record benefit the It Gets Better Project and its mission to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them. In short, It Gets Better works towards a world where all the children can boogie freely.
Artists who recorded for the project include Ted Leo, Sally Timms and Jon Langford (The Mekons, Wee Hairy Beasties), Rhett Miller (Old 97’s), Antibalas, The Honeydogs and Chasity Brown, Gina Chavez, Walter Martin (The Walkmen), Tracy Bonham and Uncle Rock, Wunmi, Elizabeth Mitchell with You Are My Flower featuring Simi Stone, Storey Littleton with Marco Benevento, Justin Roberts and the Not Ready For Naptime Players, Gustier Yellowgold and The Pop Ups, Red Yarn, Colin Brooks (Dan Zanes and Friends), Rachel Loshak with the New Standards, Nakia with the Barton Hills Choir, Molly Ledford, Lloyd H. Miller and Dean Jones, and Sonia De Los Santos and Elena Moon Park (Dan Zanes and Friends).
