Review

A Heavy version of the legendary "Live Aid", isn't it?!?!? The features
change from issue to issue: in the most common 12" you can hear the title
track (performed by giants such as Dio, Geoff Tate, Halford, Don Dokken and
Dave Meniketti) in two different versions (extended and single-edit) plus a
4,5mins interview with some of the singers and guitarists. The 7" only
features the same incredible title-track as a single-edit plus the
interview. Finally , in the more elegant long playing version, side A and
side B are filled with energetic live tracks from several bands like Y&T,
Kiss, Motorhead and a previously unreleased outtake by Hendrix!!!!!!
All those formats include lyrics, notes and funny pictures in their booklets
or cover-sleeve.
Althought, the most interesting one is the VHS video tape, with backstage,
recording sessions and interviews; that VHS is absolutely rare nowadays. A
chic item for all Metal collectors!!!!
