A remastered, expanded edition of the soul-stirring 2005 benefit album Our New Orleans is available on vinyl from Nonesuch Records. The expanded edition includes five previously unreleased tracks as well as the original performances by Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas, Wild Magnolias, Buckwheat Zydeco, Randy Newman, and others. The album has thus far raised $1.5 million Habitat for Humanity’s post-Katrina rebuilding effort. "Rife with stirring performances," says the Washington Post, "Our New Orleans has the soul of the city." Still images courtesy of Habitat for Humanity New Orleans (http://www.habitat-nola.org/​)
