Released! The Human Rights Concerts – 1986: A Conspiracy Of Hope  (Shout! Factory)
by Various Artists

FOR FANS OF: U2, The Police, The Neville Brothers
Rating: 4 Stars

The most famed Amnesty International benefit concert of all time finally hits digital retailers in its entirety after being sought after for ages. That means no less than 64 songs (wow!), including a half dozen from a hungry U2, another six from the red-hot reunited Police, plus countless other key stars of the day (such as Aaron Neville and Joan Baez teaming for a heart-melting rendition of “Amazing Grace”).

WE LIKE: “Bad” by U2
