Band Aid Do They Know It's Christmas Bass Cover
"Do They Know It's Christmas?" is a song written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 to raise money for relief of the 1983--1985 famine in Ethiopia. The original version was produced by Midge Ure and released by Band Aid on 29 November 1984. In October 1984, a BBC report by Michael Buerk was aired in the UK, which highlighted the famine that had hit the people of Ethiopia. Irish singer Bob Geldof saw the report and wanted to raise money. He called Midge Ure from Ultravox and together they quickly co-wrote the song, "Do They Know It's Christmas?". Geldof kept a November appointment with BBC Radio 1 DJ Richard Skinner to appear on his show, but instead of discussing his new album (the original reason for his booking), he used his airtime to publicise the idea for the charity single, so by the time the musicians were recruited there was intense media interest in the subject. Geldof put together a group called Band Aid, consisting of leading British and Irish musicians who were among the most popular of the era. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London, and was released four days later. The 1984 original became the biggest selling single in UK Singles Chart history, selling a million copies in the first week alone. It stayed at Number 1 for five weeks, becoming Christmas number one, and has sold 3.69 million copies domestically. It remained the highest selling single in UK chart history until 1997, when Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997" was released in tribute to the late Diana, Princess of Wales, which sold almost 5 million copies in Britain. Worldwide, the single had sold 11.8 million copies by 1989. Following the release of "Do They Know It's Christmas?" in December 1984 and record sales in aid of famine relief, Geldof then set his sights on staging a huge concert, 1985's Live Aid, to raise further funds. The song was re-recorded in 1989 by Band Aid II and in 2004 by Band Aid 20, again raising funds for famine relief. The 2004 version of the song sold 1.16 million copies.

Merry Christmas Everybody Slade Gibson SG Bass Cover
This is my cover version of the Bass part of Slade's, Merry Christmas Everybody from way back in 1973. I remember it well as I was eleven that Christmas. Santa brought me a tank with a flashing light on top and a plastic castle. I didn't actually buy this record, but bought The Carpenters, Top Of The World instead. The Bass featured here is a new Gibson SG Bass Standard Reissue with a Baked Maple fretboard, not totally unrelated to the Bass that Jim Lea of Slade played at that time. I call this Bass, the King of the Deep End for reasons that should be obvious. Copyright Notice None of the music featured in this video is performed by the original artists, Slade. All of the music is reproduced -- especially my part of course.
