Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas is Part of The Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound

Widely considered the biggest star-studded charity record, this Sound Christmas Classic was a fundraiser for African Famine relief and sold nearly 40 million copies.  Vocalists include George Michael, Paul McCartney, Sting, Bono, and Boy George with Phil Collins on drums.  Boy George was almost a no-show having over-slept in New York.  He was rushed via The Concorde to make the session that same day.  The song and video were recorded and produced in a 24 hours marathon session on November 25th, 1984.  An acoustic version was recorded in 2004 – Band Aid 20 – on the 20th anniversary of the original.  Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas is part of The Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound.
