The Concerts For Kampuchea: Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Ronnie Lane & Rockestra 1979
Just prior to Ronnie Lane's fourth "solo" album See Me release in 1980,
he was part of an historic gathering of top-notch musicians at the end
of 1979 to benefit war-torn Kampuchea (now Cambodia).
In 1981 The Concerts For Kampucha was released as 2 double live LPs.
Spear-headed by Paul McCartney, The Concerts For Kampuchea were
held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, UK December 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th 1979. Many acts were there including The Who, Pretenders,
Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Rockpile with Robert Plant, Queen,
The Clash, and, to close the shows, Rockestra!
This page is still far from finished, but take a sneak peek at Ronnie Lane and friends in spiffy silver suits (sans Pete Townshend, looks shook at 1:25 of "Lucille"!), with extended behind-the-scenes views of Abbey Road Studios.
Rockin' with Rockestra!

P.S. Sneak-sneak-peek at one of the many video gems we have been able to find of the filming of The Concerts For Kampuchia. Rockestra encored the shows with three raucous tunes, the first of which was "Lucille":
Catch the other tunes ("Let It Be" and "Rockestra Theme") here,
the last created and won a new category of music at the 1980 Grammys!
