Released! Treme Soundtrack Date and Tracklist~Last week, on the 5th anniversary of Katrina, artists associated with the Treme soundtrack including John Boutte, Irma Thomas, Kermit Ruffins, James Andrews, Paul Sanchez, Rebirth Brass Band and Mardi Gras Indians took to the House of Blues stage in New Orleans to participate in "A Night of Treme" fundraiser on behalf of Make It Right. The evening, sponsored by HBO, Geffen Records and House of Blues, was in support Make It Right's program of building safe, sustainable and affordable homes for families in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward who lost everything in the Flood of 8/29/05. Now comes official word that the soundtrack's (digital) release date is 9/28 and as well as the (19 tracks!) tune stack for the album. The HBO series is riveting and the soundtrack album will, certainly, be as well.
