I was just a baby since Arthur Fideler died. He made a lot of classical albums for RCA's Red Seal label over the years.

Default July 13, 1985

The year was 1985. The event was the Live Aid concert for African famine relief. The place was Philadelphia, PA and it was also, London, England. Electrifying performances from Philly’s JFK Stadium, London’s Wembley Stadium and other venues were telecast world-wide. The all-day and much-of-the-night concert featured some of the biggest names in rock music including Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Madonna, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney. The audience was equally as big - 162,000 attended the concert and another 1.5 billion viewed it on TV.

Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof organized the Live Aid concert, gathering the big name stars, all of whom performed without pay.

Live Aid ran for some sixteen hours and raised over $100 million.

Exclamation Live Aid - The B-Sides

Why isn't Live Aid remembered as fondly as Woodstock, Monterrey, the three Isle of Wight festivals, or even Kralingen? Because it was an overblown spectacle that amounted to nothing.

How so? Let's examine the evidence:

The day at the Philadelphia outdoor venue - take it from one who was there - was extremely hot and humid, and the seats were unconfmortable.

The bathrooms were so disorderly and chaotic, it took me forever to use one and so I missed Teddy Pendergrass's appearance, one of the few genuinely emotional experiences of the day.

The sound system was so bad I wouldn't go to another stadium concert for five years.

The money raised to feed Africa's starving people only provided temporary relief for the continent, and no one was encouraged to devote time to fighting hunger for the long haul.

The very cause - being against hunger - was a noncontroversial cause anyone could support without having to be committed to it. Hey, do you know of anyone in favor of hunger? Other than Newt Gingrich?

Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran later looked back on it as a concert that did nothing to help Africa's most fundamental problems. If Simon Le Bon could figure out something wrong with Live Aid, it had to be a crock!

Phil Collins - Phil Collins! - shamelessly grabbed a lot of attention by playing the same two songs at both the Philadelphia and London concerts. Phil Collins?

People who were at Live Aid - like me - don't brag about having been there like Baby Boomers brag about being at Woodstock, even though a lot of these same Boomers never were at Woodstock.

This was not a sociopolitical revolution that helped the world's poor. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: As Gil Scott-Heron noted, the revolution will not be televised. Live Aid was.

Unhappy July 14th, 1978

Radio station KRIZ signed off the air at midnight. No music format has changed but the station went dead air the next morning. If you like to listen to the last hours of KRIZ, here is the link:
http://www.reelradio.com/mh/kriz0778.html#kriz0778

If you listen at the end of the aircheck, you'll hear Chucker Dean talking about a TV station in Phoenix called KOOL-TV, channel 10 in which they have shows like "All in the Family", "Hawaii Five-0", "Kojak", NFL football, "Rondia" and others shows including a movie that you've tuned in at 12:00 AM to watch the rest of the movie "Corbine Williams" with the late Jimmy Stewart. That movie was made in 1952 (I know that TCM will show it soon). The aircheck features the song by Douglass Alan David singing a special song called "Tonight's the Final Night". The song was edited because it was a scoped aircheck. The song would probably be a collector's item.

Cool 7/17/68 - We all live in a yellow submarine!

I almost forgot - thirty-six years ago the day before, July 17, 1968, the Beatles's animated movie Yellow Submarine premiered in London. (Its American premiere in New York took place in late November 1968 - just in time for the holiday season! )

Cool 7/19/68 - Music In a Doll's House!

On this day in 1968, July 19, the British rock band Family, a very popular Leicester band in the British underground scene, released their debut album, Music In a Doll's House, on the U.K. Reprise label.



Produced by Traffic's Dave Mason, Music In a Doll's House is regarded as one of the best rock debut albums ever and is in contention with the Band's Music From Big Pink for the title of best debut album of 1968.

After a serious NYC summer thunderstorm forced an early end to the show the night before, Diana Ross came back to Central Park on a pleasant Friday evening to perform before an estimated half a million people on the Great Lawn, proceeds of the show going to a children's playground located in the park in Diana's name.

Default Re: Live Aid - The B-Sides

well, you have to admit that Live Aid's most popular with those in their late 20's and early/mid 30's. To these people, Live Aid is a defining moment for 80's kids. It was filled with the bands who defined the 70's and 80's, much like Woodstock was with the 60's.

When Live Aid comes to DVD next year (apparently the entire show is going to be released as a DVD box set), I might get it, whereas I really couldn't care less about buying Woodstock. The performances by Tina Turner, Madonna, Queen and Led Zeppelin would be worth it alone IMO

I'm considering buying the dvd as well (by the way BuffySlayer, it's coming out November 2). The Tina Turner/Mick Jagger performance is the one that has stuck in my mind all these years.

will it be a mammoth box set featuring the entire show, or just a "the best of" compilation?

Not mammoth, it'll be four discs. Here's a press release:

Warner Strategic Marketing is pleased to announce that the biggest concert in Rock n' Roll history, Live Aid, will be released on DVD worldwide on November 2nd, 2004. The unforgettable global event, staged in London and Philadelphia on Saturday, 13 July 1985, was watched on television by over 1.5 billion people around the world. These concerts led to pledged donations and royalties of over $140 million towards the devastating famine in Africa.

Billed as The Greatest Show on Earth, Live Aid was described by the world's media as "The Global Jukebox," "The Day Rock and Roll Changed the World" and "The greatest live show ever."

Live Aid was cited as the second most memorable event in two generations and only two weeks ago was defined, in a consumer poll, as the single greatest moment in the 50-year history of rock 'n' roll, beating not only the launch of MTV and Elvis' first record but also topping the poll ahead of the seminal festival of the '60s, Woodstock.

Live Aid, the greatest artists playing the greatest music for the world's poorest people and changing the global political agenda forever.

Live Aid was uniquely staged simultaneously on two continents and features an unbelievable line up of major Rock & Pop acts that took to the stage in July 1985 at London's Wembley and Philadelphia's JFK Stadiums.

Even today, after almost 20 years, the line up of stars put together by Bob Geldof in a matter of months remains both remarkable and unsurpassed. It is a who's who of contemporary music; united in their unequivocal support for Live Aid to prevent mass death for starving people.

The extraordinary line-up includes: U2, Sting, David Bowie, Elton John, George Michael, The Who, Madonna, Queen, Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Duran Duran, Neil Young, Ozzy Osbourne & Black Sabbath, Spandau Ballet, Dire Straits, Paul Weller, Sade, Paul Young, Adam Ant, The Boomtown Rats, The Cars, Bryan Ferry, Bryan Adams, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Crosby Stills & Nash, The Beach Boys, Judas Priest, The Style Council, Simple Minds, Thompson Twins, Nile Rodgers, Hall & Oates, Status Quo, The Pretenders, Elvis Costello, Howard Jones, Teddy Pendergrass, Alison Moyet, and Kenny Logins.

Since that great day this historic concert footage has remained locked away and the announcement of its imminent DVD release is therefore indeed momentous. Unscrupulous bootleggers have tried to sell the concert on the black market but have been shut down and prosecuted on a number of occasions.

This has forced the Band Aid Trust to seek permission from all the artists to be included in the four-disc Live Aid set, an eventuality that was never anticipated at the time of Live Aid.

Now in time for the 20th anniversary of Live Aid and after 19 years in the vaults, Warner Strategic Marketing will release those unforgettable performances on a Live Aid, 4 DVD package out on November 2, 2004.

Currently in production with the master videotapes and over 10 hours of performances the DVD will be superbly presented and re-mastered in multi-channel surround sound and stereo audio options. Within the set additional gems include the "Food, Trucks & Rock 'n' Roll" documentary (sub-titled in 8 languages) and inspirational Live Aid performances from other parts of the globe.

Live Aid on DVD is the most eagerly anticipated music DVD of the decade.

oh ok, that kicks ass. I was just dreading it'd be a lame single disc "the very best performances" disc, but 10 hrs and 4 discs sounds worth it to me

Cool July 22, 1972 - The Eagles debut!

On this day (July 22) in 1972, the year of country rock, Asylum Records released the Eagles's self-titled debut LP. Although the Eagles were immediately dismissed by the pop press as a bland retread of the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, this album spawned three major hit singles - "Take It Easy," "Witchy Woman," and "Peaceful Easy Feeling."

Also, today is Don Henley's birthday - he's 57 today.

Oops, I almost forgot. . .

Thirty years ago yesterday - July 29, 1974 - British rocker Steve Harley's backing band, Cockney Rebel, resigned en masse. Was Steve deterred? Not at all. he got himself a new Cockney Rebel band - including future Rod Stewart guitarist Jim Cregan - and recorded the single "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)," a Beatlesque tune that made it to number one in the U.K. in 1975.

oh ok.. I only knew the song from the Erasure remake from last year, so I finally know who sang the original.
