The first installment was named the Best Local Music Compilation
of the year, and the second was listed among our top Twin Cities albums released in 2010
. So it's not too shocking that the third volume of the wildly successful Minnesota Beatle Project
series is packed with big names from our local scene.
Once again, the compilation will raise money for music programs in Minnesota schools and is being released by music-oriented nonprofit Vega Productions. They just posted the track listing for this year's compilation to their website
