If you ever have a chance to listen to the whole Dimension Mix album, you won't be disappointed. It's a tribute to the music of children's musician Bruce Haack and his collaborator, dance instructor Esther Nelson with all proceeds going to the charity Cure Autism Now. From Beck to Liza Jane to Brother Cleve, the album features a unique blend of children's, electronic, space age pop music with silly to inspiring lyrics. Released in 2005, it's still available from Eenie Meenie Records. Fantastic Plastic Machine covers "I'm Bruce" and kicks off this most recent edition of Centerstage Minnesota. Other music from the show includes:  Peter Mayer, Romantica, Haley Bonar, High Drama Blues, Erik Koskinen, Dead Horses, , Feeding Leroy, Mark Andrew Band, Charlie Parr, Tina Schlieske, Ipso Facto, Jose James, The Blacksmith's Daughters, The Pines, Dave Frishberg, Sleeping Jesus, John Collins, The Slamming Doors, Woodblind, Janiva Magness, Surahoolies, Heatwave & Landman, Keith Secola, Josh Swensen, Larry Long and Friends, Billy Dankert, and  Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles.
