A track by Blues Traveler John Popper and another featuring Joan
Osborne dueting with Isaac Hayes will be two of the highlights on a new
Rhino Records release called Schoolhouse Rocks The Vote. It's a
combination Kid Rhino/ABC Schoolhouse project and Rock the Vote
The Schoolhouse series is a Saturday morning instructional cartoon geared
for young adults; Kid Rhino, a division of Rhino Records, releases
rock-oriented audio companion CDs. Rock the Vote is a campaign that
encourages political and social awareness in young people.
According to Rhino spokesperson Cindy Laudati, the record, which will also
feature Schoolhouse regular Bob Dorough, is a mixture of the usual
Schoolhouse music and tracks by well-known contemporary rock artists, most
of whom are in the process of being confirmed. The release is tentatively
scheduled for late August.
