On June 30th 1990 in the grounds of Knebworth House a concert was staged to raise funds for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and the Brit School For Performing Arts. It has since been heralded as one of the best British rock concerts of all time. With the line-up drawn entirely from acts who had been recipients of the prestigious Sliver Clef Award presented annually by Nordoff-Robbins for outstanding services to the British Music Industry, all the artists gave their time and performances for free in order to support the charity.A Deluxe Edition DVD/CD set sneaked out unannounced and un-noticed on June 14th last year, which is a shame as it celebrates the 20th anniversary of this concert. This new edition will continue to raise funds so that they can continue their invaluable work, and contains the double DVD and double CD in the same package for the first time. Also included, which might be quite tempting for some, are a replica of the original event programme and a replica of the original ticket for the event. These are packaged together in a fold out digipack inside a slipcase with metallic silver ink lettering.As you'll see from the tracklisting below, it featured quite a line-up, playing some of their best songs for the audience who braved some interesting weather on the day! The release features a number of highlights from each artist, but sadly complete sets from the artists were never officially released.
