Great Christmas gift for my husband.
Karen M Hansen
There is a ton of material here, including great music for an excellent cause, and some truly hilarious '80's haircuts (I'm looking at you, Kevin Bacon!)

I never got rid of my VHS tape of the 1988 concert as aired on HBO, but here it is, finally, on DVD, along with much more. There is a ton of material here, including great music for an excellent cause, and some truly hilarious '80's haircuts (I'm looking at you, Kevin Bacon!) Don't miss the "Peach Jam" segment on Context on the Human Rights Concerts -- Part One. I promise you've never seen anything quite like it.

This would have been a much better three DVD set to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the "Human Rights Now" concerts. The first two DVDs here are from the NYC concert and feature full sets from Police, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, etc. The second disk is the theater documentary in it's full 3 hour format and adds Bruce Springsteen and U2 to the mix. The other sets quite frankly I haven't bothered with yet. But they do feature some sets down the years up to and including Mumford & Sons at the 2012 show. It's a lot to take in.

Received as a Christmas gift.

A high point of my lifetime of attending concerts was the Amnesty Concert in Philadelphia. Re-watching these concerts brings back great memories. The video quality is very VHS, but it seems to increase the awesome. At one point Martha Quinn audio interrupts Peter Gabriel's performance.

A memory I have is Tracy Chapman singing "Don't Give Up" with Peter Gabriel, but I haven't found it on this set. Too bad, as it was an epic point for me. Included, though, is the equally excellent "The River" with Sting and Springsteen.
