Notes

25 Year re-issue. Limited to 2020 copies.

Put together by Tony Crean of Go!Discs for charity and inspired by John Lennon's 7-day schedule for the release of 'Instant Karma' (record on Monday, press up on Tuesday, sleeve on Wednesday, etc.). The same timescale was decided on for this album, the proceeds going to help starving Bosnian refugees. Named after the Beatles song, 'Help' seems a near impossible attempt at getting the biggest bands in the country to record exclusive songs and present them in a matter of days. Crean did it from idea to hitting the shops in 6 days.

12" x 12" Insert with War Child Statement and Photos

    This was a release in 1995, great mix of bands, a brilliant compilation. Jumped on it when was being released on vinyl. 2020 limited copies.... must get quick...... and.... still seems to be widely available? 1196 who have here, over half the total.... reckon there was more released? Still a recommended must have from the 90s!

      Why is there not the slightest trace of this publication on the Vinyl Factory website? ... it's strange.
