My personal favorite moment in charity song history is the final paragraph from the Life magazine article on USA For Africa, as pictured at the top of the article (and quoted on this page of the Steve Perry fan club Website). "Lionel Richie's house. Lionel has been sleeping since 10:00 a.m. The phone rings. It's Steve Perry, calling from his L.A. hotel room. Perry says he just had to call somebody. Lionel asks him what's wrong. Perry says that he slept well. He got up and ordered room service. They brought him breakfast. He sat down. He pulled the silver cover off the food. And then he started crying." And then, of course, he ate the food, his tears lightly salting the meal.

The Concert for Bangladesh was created due to the famine and drought in the emerging independent country of Bangladesh.

THat happens to be the finest George Harrison Record in my book (Bangladesh Concert)


I saw "The Concert for Bangladesh 1971" (2 DVD set) for the first time while I was in a store today. It's been 34 years since the concert. Are profits from the sales of the DVD going to charity in Bangladesh still or just into the pockets of the artists and producers?

Thanks for posting that early 90's Arbor Day PSA commercial with John Denver, Heston, Bridges, and Eddie Albert. I first heard that when I was in college; a local top 40 radio station played that. Haven't heard that in 15 years, now. That's a classic!
