Shop Vinyl and CDs and complete your collection. 1993 tribute album featuring noteworthy alternative and indie musicians covering the music of Victoria Williams after she was diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis. The intention was to raise money to help with her health care costs and to start a fund (the Sweet Relief Fund) to assist other professional musicians with similar future needs.

Sweet Relief is proof that the best of intentions don't necessarily guarantee a great CD. The first and foremost goal of this CD was to raise money for musician for Victoria Williams, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and had no medical insurance. The CD's songs are written by Williams and covered by some of the hottest "alternative" bands of the 90s. How disappointing, then, that the disc's inspired performances are the exception rather than the rule.
