Recorded LIVE at London's Hammersmith Odeon arena on December 26, 27, 28 & 29, 1979 to bring attention to and to gather funds for the human suffering (from war, famine & sickness) in the former southeast Asian country of Cambodia, which at the time of these concerts, had a name change to Kampuchea.

Concerts for the People of Kampuchea is a double album by Wings, the Who, Queen, Elvis Costello, Pretenders, the Clash, the Specials, and other artists featuring highlights from the Concerts for the People of Kampuchea held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London to raise money for the victims of war-torn Cambodia. It has yet to be released on CD, though the Wings and "Rockestra" supergroup portions of the album have appeared on Paul McCartney bootlegs.

Aggressive Confident Rousing Energetic Freewheeling Raucous. Concerts for the People of Kampuchea. Whereas George Harrison had his all-star charity concert for the people of Bangladesh, Paul McCartney had this December, 1979 series of concerts in Hammersmith Odeon to raise money for the victims of Pol Pot's reign of terror in Cambodia. It was a meeting of the old guard (McCartney, the Who) and the new (the Clash, Ian Dury, the Pretenders, Elvis Costello), and those in the middle (Queen) who could sneak in. The audio quality is shabby; nothing leaps out as being more sonically interesting than a live radio broadcast, and the performances are okay but not staggering

A live album is a musical recording containing recorded concert performances. The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. March 30 is the 89th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (90th in leap years). 1981 (MCMLXXXI) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar.

Live album by. Various Artists. The best of the concerts was released as a film, Concert for Kampuchea. Rockestra was a Paul McCartney-led supergroup of at least thirty English rockers. Then, McCartney and Kurt Waldheim re-assembled Rockestra for a series of benefit concerts for the people of Cambodia (also known as Kampuchea), suffering from the reign of Pol Pot. This time, Rockestra consisted of, among others, Wings, John Paul Jones, Bonham, Robert Plant, Rockpile, James Honeyman-Scott and Townshend.

Information Official live releases Concerts for the people of Kampuchea. OK, technically this is not a Queen album but this live Queen track was officially released only on this album so I decided to include it here anyway. Concerts for the People of Kampuchea is a double album that includes highlights from charity concerts held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London in December 1979. It was released in 1981 to raise money for the victims of Pol Pot's reign of terror in Cambodia ( Kampuchea). For complete audio recording see my collection.

Consumer Guide Album. Concerts for the People of Kampuchea I'm a permanent skeptic about live albums, compilation albums, and charity albums, so don't call me sucker when I report the sound superb, the arrangements tight, the performances up, and the programming acute (especially on the relentless Rockpile side). Could do without the Who's "Sister Disco" (they're flaccid in general) and organizer Paul McCartney's 20-member Rockestra (though Wings sounds fine)

For the film, see Concert for Kampuchea. Concerts for the People of Kampuchea was a series of concerts featuring Queen, The Clash, The Pretenders, The Who, Elvis Costello, Wings, and many more artists which took place at the Hammersmith Odeon in London during December 1979 to raise money for the victims of war-torn Cambodia. The event was organized by Paul McCartney and Kurt Waldheim, and it involved older artists such as McCartney and The Who as well as younger, new wave acts like The Clash and the Pretenders. The last of the concerts was the last concert of Wings
