PLEASE NOTE: As this item has been obtained overseas, there is a possibility that the tape may have become loose from the spool in transit.
If you choose our service option, we would check this and correct the issue for you.
If you purchase directly and do not check the tape inside before playback, you will risk damaging the tape and no refund will be available.
All 8 tracks are pre-loved (used) and are sold “as is”.
We do offer a “service cart” option or you can add additional spare parts if you wish to service the cart yourself.
It is highly recommended that all 8 tracks have replacement pads, a new foil splice and internal cleaning done before use.
The foam pads inside are very old (over 40 years) and would have deteriorated, even if the cart is sealed and has never been used.

“The Concert for Bangladesh” is a historic album that captures the live performance of a star-studded benefit concert held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on August 1, 1971. The concert was organized by former Beatle George Harrison and Ravi Shankar to raise awareness and funds for the people of East Pakistan, who were suffering from the aftermath of a devastating cyclone and a brutal civil war.
The album features iconic performances by an array of musicians, including Harrison, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, and Billy Preston, among others. The songs range from Harrison’s classics like “Here Comes the Sun” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” to Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “Blowin’ in the Wind.”
The album has a raw, live quality that captures the energy and spontaneity of the performances. The musicians are clearly inspired by the cause they are supporting and the crowd’s enthusiasm is palpable.
But beyond the music itself, “The Concert for Bangladesh” is an important piece of history. It was one of the first large-scale benefit concerts, paving the way for events like Live Aid and the modern-day music festival. It also brought attention to a humanitarian crisis that was largely ignored by the world media.
Overall, “The Concert for Bangladesh” is a must-listen for music fans and anyone interested in the intersection of music and activism. It’s a powerful reminder of the role music can play in bringing people together and creating change.
