Enjoy Canada's Northern Lights.
30 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

If you are a product of the 80's like me, then chances are you will find this documentary to be a fun trip down memory lane. It chronicles the making of Canada's musical contribution to the international effort to stop hunger in Africa in 1985.

See performers such as: Neil Young, Bryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Burton Cummings (The Guess Who), Mike Reno (Loverboy), Geddy Lee (Rush) and Corey Hart all coming together for a good cause and putting their talent and fame to good use.

Highlights for me include: Bruce Allen (Bryan Adams' manager) frantically wrangling participants for the benefit on the telephone; the emotional speech by an Ethiopian woman sharing the devastating effects that famine has inflicted on her people; John Candy's comic relief.

PS - You won't find Canadian divas Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain, Diana Krall or Sarah McLachlan on this tape. They weren't on the scene back then. But it goes to show how much talent comes out of Canada!
