    Tom Petty Records A Classic For Fats Domino Tribute CD
    Tom Petty has recorded the Fats Domino classic "I'm Walking" for an upcoming charity tribute album due September 25. Other artists who are participating by putting their own spin on Fats Domino hits include Elton John, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Robert Plant and Willie Nelson. The double-disc \"Goin\' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino\" includes tracks like \"I Want to Walk You Home,\" \"Blueberry Hill,\" and \"Ain\'t That a Shame\", with proceeds to be donated to New Orleans public school music programs and to rebuilding Domino\'s Hurricane Katrina-ravaged home.

    A full list of artists and songs recorded is listed below.

    Domino, 79, donated a portion of proceeds from his last album, 2006\'s \"Alive and Kickin\',\" to New Orleans musician non-profit Tipitina\'s Foundation. Organizers at Tipitina\'s, in turn, organized \"Goin\' Home\" in his honor. \"The idea came to me last September when I was trying to come up with a way to thank Fats for donating. I also wanted to create a project that could shine the spotlight on our city\'s unique music culture,\" says Tipitina\'s Foundation executive director Bill Taylor.
