On October 16th 1970, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Phil Ochs played for free to a packed house, delivering brilliant performances and making history.
It's all captured on a two-disc CD complete with a 48-page booklet of never-before-seen, candid black and white photos of the concert, and photos of the Amchitka voyage and modern-day Greenpeace.
Amchitka, the 1970 concert that launched Greenpeace offers you the live vibe and nuance of the concert that changed the course of social activism for peace and the environment.
Funds raised that night sent a boat renamed the Greenpeace to Amchitka Island in the Aleutians on the southern tip of Alaska to protest a series of underground nuclear bomb tests by the U.S. government. Greenpeace was born and the test series was canceled as a direct result of Greenpeace bearing witness and alerting the world.
