Product Description

Here, at last on CD, is the double album documenting the series of concerts held at Madison Square Garden in 1979 to fight the spread of nuclear power. Many of the top names in late-'70s rock appeared, which is why this has been such a hot collectors' item on vinyl. Check this lineup out- Devil with the Blue Dress On Medley Jackson Browne w/Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band; Angel from Montgomery Bonnie Raitt; Long Time Gone CS&N; Cry to Me Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers; Mockingbird James Taylor & Carly Simon; Takin' It to the Streets Doobie Brothers w/James Taylor, and more. The notes include an update on the ongoing nuclear debate. The highest-charting benefit album of all time!

Amazon.com

In addition to raising public consciousness about the dangers of nuclear power, the 1979 series of star-studded anti-nuclear concerts at Madison Square Garden were a significant event both musically and historically. The shows were immortalized in a feature film and on this 2 CD set. Among those featured on the album are such '70s soft-rock icons as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Carly Simon, the Doobie Brothers, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, along with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Ry Cooder, and Gil Scott-Heron for a token dose of grit. Inevitably, Springsteen's "Devil with the Blue Dress Medley" steals the show, but otherwise No Nukes doubles as both a handy '70s-rock sampler and a historical keepsake. --Scott Schinder

1979. That was a long time ago. We were young. We were worried about nuclear power plants. This was months after Three Mile Island. Now look where we are with Japan after the earthquake. It was a simpler time - Remember, the 60's mostly happened in the 70's, and the late 70's weren't the 80's yet, so we still thought we could change the world :)

But enough about that. This was a great concert (I saw it at the Hollywood Bowl), and a great album. What a lineup! Doobies, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, CSN, Springsteen at the height of his powers, Tom Petty (New guy - he only had two albums out at the time...), plus Gil Scott-Heron, Ry Cooder, and Jesse Colin Young. Chaka Khan (this was when disco still sucked) and Sweet Honey on the Rock, too..

Some great pairings here with Jackson Brown and Graham Nash doing beautiful harmonies on "The Crow On The Cradle" (30 years later, another great version by JB and David Lindley on another fantastic live album - Love Is Strange), James Taylor, Carly Simon, and Graham Nash on "The Times They Are A-Changin" and you gotta love "Stay" with Jackson, Bruce, and the E Street Band! Great versions of Runaway, Angel From Mongomery, Cathedral, You Don't Have to Cry and Captain Jim's Drunken Dream are some of the highlights.

Glad I found this on CD. Thanks Amazon. Can't get it on iTunes and the booklet brings back a lot of memories.

The best live performance by 70s greats. Following the near melt-down at Three Mile Island, a group of musicians banded together to make a statement and raise awareness about the questionable safety of nuclear power. While the qualities of the individual musicians are recognizable, the synergies of combining them in supporting roles and sharing leads produced some amazing raw but beautiful tunes.
The artists are listed on the album cover but not the fact that they performed together during the shows to produce a number of new flavors.

The song "Power", followed by "The Times They Are A Changin'" are remarkable. A diamond in the rough, the songs are from the heart and voices are one. On "Power" James Taylor, Carly Simon, John Hall and Doobie Brothers really shine! That tune alone is worth the price of the album. James Taylor, Carly Simon, John Hall and Graham Nash deliver a raw but classic "Times They Are A Changin'".

Rather than rate the album song-by-song, perhaps it's best to rate the album alone. Yes, Bonnie Raait, Jackson Browne, Springsteen, Petty, CSN, Nicolette Larson, Poco... just too many - they were all fantastic. Of 5 stars, one disk is a 4 and the other a 5.

Also, an unusual find. I have the set on the original cassette media but one no longer plays and I tried the usual iTunes and others for years and couldn't find a replacement. I don't know when it was released on CD but the timing was right with the disaster in Japan. Perhaps it's time to raise awareness again as we do tend to become complacent until it's too late.

The only negative is the quality of the recording and mix. It's not the best but the music makes up for it.

I was very happy with this purchase. I had this album many years ago but lost it somewhere along the way. There are some great covers and its surprising how timely the songs are with all the stuff happening in Japan.

Excellent double cd for die hard fans of the No Nukes bands especially CSN. Highly recommend this to all. I have the original album and its great to have the concert again.

I suppose just about anyone could find a reason to give a listen to the 'No Nukes' recordings. For many, some of the earliest and most blistering live tracks from Bruce Springsteen, still on his career ascent, which are offered here are reason enough to own these discs, even if he shares CD space with Chaka Khan. Others may find their appeal in the workmanlike presence of Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, and The Doobie Brothers, who perform solo and are all over the place singing duets and background for other performers willing to ante-up in the fight against fission. Despite my own appreciation for Crosby, Stills and Nash, what really caught my eye here was what amounts to a cameo appearance by Gil Scott-Heron, offering up one of his finest moments (and as a Detroiter one I can readily identify with) on the ominous yet funkified 'We Almost Lost Detroit'. Next to 'Johannasburg' this is my favorite Gil Scott-Heron composition. Unfortunately, it appears on a wonderful, but unreleased CD Scott-Heron produced in 1977 with Brian Jackson, 'Bridges'. It tells a slightly overblown tale about a malfunction at one of the two Fermi nuclear plants near Detroit. While the mishap could have theoretically progressed into a full-blown meltdown, the generator was quickly shut down and catastrophe was readily averted. So while it didn't come close to producing a Chernobyl, it did produce one funky protest song, and Scott-Heron gives it an inspired treatment on 'No Nukes'

1979 was a strange, transitional year in music. Disco was all but dead, yet it's brief success had ushered in a retreat from the expansive progressive rock that had enshrined the late 1960's and early 1970's.

Without Nukes, these people's amps don't work ...
I agree, I retired 10 years ago after 30 years as an instructor and an operator at a nuke power plant. No better way to make the large quantities of electricity we need to power an economy that will support 310 million people and growing fast. Back then I thought the "no nukes" people... Read More
