Here’s the finale to James’s 1971 BBC In Concert special, a rollicking cover of Chuck Berry’s “The Promised Land”, featuring Carole King, Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar and the members of Jo Mama (Danny Kortchmar, Joel Bishop O’Brien, Charles Larkey, Ralph Schuckett and Abigale Haness).
In celebration of reaching 1 million subscribers, the official Live Aid YouTube channel will re-broadcast the complete 1985 concert next Wednesday, December 28, starting at 7am ET. This will be the first time since 1985 that the full concert has been shown.
