The greatest show of the 70's
1 March 2005 | by (Bolivia) – See all my reviews

This was the first music TV special broad casted live around the world and most of the artist included on the LP record are famous since the day of their performance on that spectacular event. In my case (a Bolivian music lover) this was the very first "mega festival" I have ever seen, and it will be on my mind FOREVER. ¿When could I see The Music For Unicef Concert again, on DVD?. Top artists: The Bee Gees (amazing performance), Rod Stewart (best live version of "Da ya Think I'm Sexy?"), Earth Wind And Fire (excellent medley), Olivia Newton John and Andy Gibb (great duet), Donna Summer (lovely and touching song), ABBA ("Chiquitita" was a world wide hit thanks to this concert) and John Denver (who, since that day, was knew around the globe as one of the greatest Country Music idols).
