Japan charity album released

Two weeks after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northern coast of Japan, an all-star charity album has already been released to aid reconstruction efforts.

Four big record labels - Sony , EMI, Universal and Warner - are working together to release the 38-track album, which will raise money for the Japanese Red Cross.
