The concerts for the people of kampuchea were designed by Paul McCartney, who wanted to organise a musical benifit for the starving Kampuchean (cambodia) people. Incorporating some of the best British talent at the time, there were a series of concerts held to sell-out crowds at London's Hammersmith Odeon theatre. The who played an amazing three hour performance, and four of the tracks made it to the album, which boasts a great live version (the only to my knowledge) of Sister Disco and a five-minute 'see me, feel me'.
 
The Rockestra tracks are made up of various performers listed below, which was another of Sir Paul's ideas;
 
Rockestra performers:
 
John Bonham
Billy Bremner
Gary Brooker
Howie Casey
Tony Dorsey
Dave Edmunds
Steve Holly
James Honeyman-Scott
Steve Howard
Kenney Jones
John Paul Jones

Denny Laine
Ronnie Lane
Linda McCartney
Paul McCartney
Robert Plant
Thadeus Richard
Bruce Thomas
Pete Townshend
 
There are some amzing tracks on this album; interesting arrangments on the who tracks (trumpets, organs etc), the pretenders played a cruddy set, as well as elvis costello. Queen has a phenomonal track, as well as the clash and Ian dury. The Rockestra tracks are great, especially at the climax!
