Hello

While you may come here for the music, we would like to make it clear that Live Aid & Band Aid are about dying people !

This means that we urge you not to try to make money with the files shared in the group. This has always been a no-profit project adn we'd hate seing this sold by bootleggers.

As of today, the only way of giving money the Band Aid & Live Aid Trust is International Money Order (not Western Union) payable to the Band Aid Trust

Band Aid Charitable Trust

This site will help you find the charity you want to help.

But, this is not all about money. You can also give a bit of your time, and there is surely a local care center that you can help. And all the day to day acts can be charity oriented nowadays, by buying fair trade goods ...

**************************************************************

We do not approve of selling copies of any Live Aid sets (audio or video) on this forum, unless it is only for price of blanks and postage.

Keep the music free and pass it on.

Let me clear the fact that Live Aid and Band Aid were events for charity and should not be spoiled. It is important that these sets will NEVER be sold, neither on any on-line auction site or on personal trade lists. This release is a fan release, not a regular official Live Aid / Band Aid release. It was made by fans and only for fans. The makers of these Cds would like to point out that no profit has been made on this recordings. We have not used any part of the official release in that compilation. Remember that Live Aid was a charity concert, in aid of starving people.

PLEASE : DO NOT MAKE PROFIT ON THIS RECORDING !!!

Feel free to share and trade.
