Aldora Britain records proudly presents AS GOOD AS IT GETS, a 50 song digital charity compilation album in support of Help Musicians' Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund.
Independent musicians have seen their livelihoods decimated over the last few months and there are no signs of improvement in the foreseeable future. These grassroots creators have been forgotten and overlooked. Music plays such a huge part in everyone's life, think of all the songs that you associate with your fondest memories. It is time to stand with the creators of this art form.
Aldora Britain Records and its Community stand with these incredible people endeavouring to live out their dreams. Please support this incredible cause with us.
