Bowie & Co MISSING from Prince's Trust Collection? new [re: ]  

Videos of songs performed over the years from The Prince's Trust concerts are about to be released through iTunes to aid the youth charity.

You will be able to download:

* Rare live performances of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with three of the original recording artists from the Beatles' White Album – George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Ringo Starr.

* Paul McCartney performing "Get Back" with Tina Turner in his first performance in over six years, which inspired McCartney to tour again: "I had never considered going back on tour until I got the royals rocking at The Prince's Trust concert," said McCartney. "I joined Tina Turner on stage …and the packed crowd went crazy …. I had missed playing live shows but I didn't realize how much until I did The Prince’s Trust gig… That concert left me feeling so good."

* Eric Clapton and Tina Turner performing a duet of "Tearing Us Apart", a pre-release of the hit song that would be featured on Clapton's August album, released three months after this performance.

* An all-star collaboration on "Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)", with Elton John, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Ray King, and others in what is considered by many critics as the best live performance of the song.

* The Prince's Trust concert of 1987, which included "Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." This concert won the 1987 Grammy Award for Best Performance Music Video


Julian Barrell, director of fundraising, The Prince' Trust said in a statement, "We’re delighted to share these legendary videos with people across the world. The money raised will help disadvantaged young people into jobs, which is more vital than ever during the economic downturn."

"It is hard to over-estimate the significance of The Prince's Trust concerts," said Matthew White, co-owner, OVOW Communications. "While the list of artists is mythical and legendary, these are truly collaborative performances, full of joy and spontaneity. Nothing on this scale captures such intimacy. These are indeed essential artifacts of rock history."

Simon Gibbs, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide said, 'We’re extremely proud to represent the Prince's Trust in this deal. These unique live music clips have such a timeless quality, everyone can remember at least one of these iconic performances and now fans can re-live them again and again through the iTunes store.'

Monies raised will go to the Trust to further support disadvantaged young people into work.

Well, 100% Brit (and apparently proud of it) is being a bit over the top when he says 8 hours [of Outside outtakes]. I'd love to know the truth concerning what 100% git really has ~ Reeves Gabrels, 2003

That's the one.

The main problem I think is Jagger's voice - what a sinfully ugly thing it is.

Not only does it render Bowie almost inaudible but forward it to around 2:07 and hear the revolting voiced man sing: 'it doesn't matter what you WEAR'.

I am hardly a singer myself but I know there is something horribly wrong with that. It cannot even be close to being in tune.

Jagger can not sing at all. Neither can many great artists. Some turn their flaws into original trademarks.

No more free steps to heaven.

I see Martha Reeves almost everyday. After viewing that utube, I don't ever want to hear her or anyone else sing that song again.

No more free steps to heaven.

It quite rightfully should be missing. It was ana awful performance and I wouldn't be surprised if Bowie himself asked for it to be omitted.

Thanks for the post, Adam.

That youtube video... horrendous! Absolutely horrible! I'm ashamed to have watched it! (And even admitting I watched it is as bad)
