George Harrison Concert for Bangladesh 1971

The Concert For Bangladesh is a live album by George Harrison and Friends.

It was recorded at Madison Square Garden in New York on 1 August 1971. This was a charity event to raise money to help the refugees of the Bangladesh Liberation War between east Pakistan and West Pakistan that eventually created the independent country of Bangladesh.

Harrison used his fame to bring together a group of stars including fellow ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Leon Russell, Billy Preston and Ravi Shankar.

Disputes between the record companies delayed the release of the album until December 1971 in the USA and January 1972 in the UK. While the concert and album reflected well on the stars involved, the record companies behaved very badly, even allegedly encouraging the retailers to mark up the album to gain extra profits for themselves.

This is an important album because it proved that rock stars could make a difference and went on to inspire Live Aid and other charity concerts.

Traffic Welcome To The Canteen 1971

Welcome To The Canteen is a live album by Traffic. It was recorded at Fairfield Halls, Croydon and the Oz Benefit Concert, London in July 1971 and released several months later.

The band had released the John Barleycorn Must Die studio album the previous year and a few months later recorded The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.

In fact, originally it wasn’t recognised as a Traffic album… just the names of the musicians as you can see from the album cover.

Creedence Clearwater Revival Live In Europe 1971

Creedence Clearwater Revival Live In Europe is the first live album released by CCR in 1973. It was recorded on tour in Europe in September 1971.

It is alleged that this isn’t a live album at all but a rehearsal tape with the sounds of an audience dubbed on later. I can well believe it.

This is also Creedence Clearwater Revival performing as a trio as rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty was no longer with the group and this change also affected their sound.
