Various Artists - No Nukes.(1979) protest concert

 Here, at last on CD, is the double album documenting the series of concerts
 held at Madison Square Garden in 1979 to fight the spread of nuclear power.
Many of the top names in late-'70s rock appeared, which is why this has been such a hot collectors'

item on vinyl. Check this lineup out- Devil with the Blue Dress On Medley
Jackson Browne w/Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band; Angel from Montgomery Bonnie Raitt;
 Long Time Gone CS&N; Cry to Me Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers; Mockingbird James Taylor & Carly Simon; Takin' It to the Streets Doobie Brothers w/James Taylor, and more.

The highest-charting benefit album of all time!

No Nukes: The Muse Concerts For a Non-Nuclear Future was a 1979 triple live album that contained selections from the September 1979 Madison Square Garden concerts by the Musicians United for Safe Energy collective. Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hall were the key organizers of the event and guiding forces behind the album.

This was the first official appearance of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's much ballyhooed live act on record, and their "Detroit Medley", a staple of the encores of their regular shows, achieved considerable album-oriented rock airplay. Otherwise the album did not get much radio attention, as many of the artists held back their best-known material from appearing on it or emphasized collaborative performances. The album was certified a gold record by the RIAA in September 1980. It was reissued as a two-CD set by Elektra Records in October 1997.

The No Nukes film was also released in May 1980 from this event, although it contained somewhat varying contents from this album.
