    If this journal entry is showing up on the page of one of your favorite artists, that is because one of your favorite artists is on it (see list below). My apologies to those who knew about this album already, but it seemed awfully isolated and neglected - only 58 listeners! - so I decided to do a little bit of promotion. There are some real gems on here that all of you true fans should know about!

    Nobody's Child: Romanian Angel Appeal is an album compiled by George and Olivia Harrison and released in 1990 to benefit Romanian orphans, in aid of the Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation. All of the songs were previously unreleased, and "Nobody's Child" b/w "This Week" B/W "With a Little Help from my Friends" was released as single.

    Track listing & notable credits:

    1. "Nobody's Child" – The Traveling Wilburys. (For those not in the know, the Wilburys were Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, and Bob Dylan)

    "And today's for sale /
    And it's all you can afford /
    By your own admission /
    Well, the whole thing's got you bored"

    I woke up to this song this morning, and as I lay there listening to it, I realized the SotD has never highlighted this local hero or Michael Stanley Band! For shame!

    Cleveland (Rocky River) native Michael Stanley was a lesser known but well-connected part of the early 70s "singer/songwriter" era, releasing two solo albums before forming MSB in 1975. They were a major draw in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio in the late 70s and early 80s, but they only achieved modest success nationwide. Almost no one - and not just Clevelanders - doubts that they deserved more national success.
