February 6, 2013

On December 12, 2012 many musical artist gathered together at Madison Square Garden for the 121212-The Concert For Sandy Relief to benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund. It was a rather lengthy show but I watched the whole thing. This is a double CD of the evening and it is definitely worth the price. Thankfully they left off any perfomances from Kanye West, which left it to be pretty much a classic rock fest. Amazing performances from Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, the Who and Eric Clapton are the highlights. Recommended with 4 1/2 stars out of 5
