Christmas CD Countdown 2023! December 24th


A couple years ago, or maybe just last year, I can't remember, I started packing away CD"s I was buying between October and November to have myself a CD a day Christmas countdown. It's like getting a gift every day leading up to the holiday. It helps tied over the excitement of the coming day, and well, it's just fun.

This year's focus was live albums, and 80's discography clean up. The latter meaning that it wasn't necessarily an album I had on my want list for a specific song, but rather to have an entire decade collection of a specific artist.

The Christmas countdown wraps up with a DVD.

It's the greatest live concert of the 80's, and possibly of all time. Live Aid filled stages in both Wembley Stadium in the UK, and John F. Kennedy Stadium in the US for a whopping 16 hour show. All proceeds went to famine relief for Africa, raising over 140 million dollars when it was all said and done. The lineup featured more than 75 acts, including Elton John, Queen, Madonna, Santana, Run DMC, Sade, Sting, Bryan Adams, the Beach Boys, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Duran Duran, U2, the Who, Tom Petty, Neil Young and Eric Clapton. Like I said, possibly the greatest concert of all times. Unfortunately, it's never been released on CD. But, I suppose with the DVD's I can make that happen for myself.

  1. Which entertainer performed in London and then took the Concord to perform at JFK on the same day? I believe it was Elton, but I could be wrong.

    1. Phil Collins. He sang Against All Odds in London, then went to the USA and sang In The Air Tonight.
