MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Music lovers bundled up and headed to stores early this morning to get a copy of the Cities 97 Sampler, volume 26.

One of the reasons some of the fans get up so early is because there are only 35,000 copies available.

The CD is a compilation of established artists as well as newcomers.

Sales of the disc benefit Minnesota nonprofits.

This year’s album is expected to raise close to a million dollars for local charities.

WCCO was told there are limited CDs still available at some Target stores.
