1 x 7″ 1000 Cps Red
The World Liberty Concert was a concert that took place on 8 May 1995 next to the John Frost Bridge in Arnhem in the Netherlands. The concert was held in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the liberation of Europe and is the largest memorial concert ever held in the Netherlands. Preparations lasted for about a year.
Performances were provided by Alan Parsons, Chris Thompson, Joe Cocker, Cyndi Lauper, Candy Dulfer, UB40, the Metropole Orkest amongst many others.
The event-specific configuration of The Alan Parsons Project, which had been a studio group only, was one of the first ever live performances of the band’s material, albeit without cofounder Eric Woolfson.
The musical performances were accompanied by historical readings by Walter Cronkite and an illustrative performance by the Royal Netherlands Army.
The broadcast portion of the concert lasted about 2 hours, was attended by 85,000 people, and was broadcast in 45 countries. During the performance of “You’re the Voice”, volunteers held burning torches at the side of the Rhine, which was also decorated by spraying water fountains.
The B-side of the 7″ features “White Dawn”, where the allied forces presented themselves (dressed in white) and captured the aggressor at the bridge.
Exclusively available for Record Store Day 2023, this 7″ edition of You’re The Voice is available on vinyl for the first time as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on translucent red coloured vinyl.
