An obscure yet amazingly good charity album
Daniel Jolley | Shelby, North Carolina USA | 10/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"1990's Nobody's Child is the best charity album I have ever come across. The album was the brainchild of Barbara Bach, Olivia Harrison, Yoko Ono, and Linda McCartney, and the money it raised went to support the huge numbers of orphans in Romania. This album really never got the attention it deserved (and still deserves); not only is the cause a noble one, but the quality of the music included here is top-notch indeed.I'll list the tracks and the artists that grace this incredible album.Track 1: The Traveling Wilburys, Nobody's Child. This is an outstanding and little known Wilburys classic.
Track 2: The always impressive Van Morrison, Wonderful Remark
Track 3: Elton John, Medicine Man
Track 4: Dave Stewart and the Spiritual Cowboys, This Week. Dave Stewart is best known, of course, as half of the Eurythmics, but he is a talented artist in his own right.
Track 5: Paul Simon and George Harrison, Homeward Bound; this comes from a Saturday Night Live performance.
Track 6: Bee Gees, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? This cut was recorded live in Australia in 1989.
Track 7: Billy Idol, Lovechild
Track 8: Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians, Big Day Little Boat
Track 9: Stevie Wonder, Feeding Off the Love of the Land
Track 10: Eric Clapton, That Kind of Woman
Track 11: Ric Ocasek, Goodnight Little One
Track 12: Duane Eddy, The Trembler (a song co-written by Ravi Shankar)
Track 13: Mike & the Mechanics, Ain't That Peculiar. This group is little known today but was quite popular at the time of this album's release.
Track 14: Guns N' Roses, Civil War. This monumental GNR classic was unavailable elsewhere at the time (until the later release of the group's Use Your Illusions albums).
Track 15: Ringo Starr and His All Star Band, With a Little Help From My FriendsQuite obviously, this is a stellar list of performers. George Harrison fans should take special notice of this album; not only does he contribute upfront to two of the tracks, he plays guitar on several of the other selections. I was fortunate enough to gobble this CD up just after it was released, and I have to say that it's a real shame that an album this impressive is so obscure and hard to find today."
Rare Traveling Wilburys Song.

"A relatively obscure compilation,this album was released in 1990 as a benefit for charity,involving the likes of two Beatle wives(Yoko Ono and Linda McCartney)and also features a Traveling Wilburys' tune not available anywhere else except in a rare,out-of-print CD single.Though there are some other good tunes on this CD,its main attraction is this rare Wilburys' song.So if you are a Beatles or George Harrison fan,this obscure gem is for you."
