The dB's recorded a new version of the great Jimmy Ruffin song "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" earlier this year, I guess as part of their reunion activities. They're now offering it as a Free Download on their site to anyone who makes a donation to the New Orleans Musicians' Relief Fund.
The band's Peter Holsapple relocated to the Crescent City, and formed the Continental Drifters, many years ago - according to the site he's doing fine, though like many other residents, he doesn't really know if he has much to go back to... He was also the source of one of the good perspectives expressed in one of the many many articles I've seen about Katrina's aftermath, from Salon.com:
"My guitar tech said yesterday, and I keep repeating it like a mantra: love people, use things. I lost things, but I didn't lose the biggest things, like my wife and family and friends."
