Band Aid II - Do They Know It's Christmas?

30 years after it's original release, Do They Know It's Chjristmas by Band Aid II has at last been made available on most digital platforms to buy and stream.

Conspicuous by it's absence for 3 decades the track has now been made available after Midge Ure, one of the original writers of the song, stepped in to find out why it had been omitted for so long.

Now, in it's 30th anniversary year fans can download and stream the song for the festive period.

Do they Know It's Christmas was recorded on 3rd December 1989 at PWL studios in London. Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman it featured many of their own artists (Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Bananarama, Sonia, Big Fun) as well as popular artists of the day (Bros, Chris Rea, Cliff Richard, Jimmy Somerville, Lisa Stansfield, Wet Wet Wet). 

The single raced to the top of the UK charts where it spent 3 weeks.
