All Star Festival:  The Very First Modern Benefit Concert

Wikipedia informs us that the very first modern-day benefit concert is deemed to be 1971's CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH. But what has slipped thru the cracks is a 1963 album and event which has the weird distinction of being sponsored by that famous pop music promoter--the United Nations. Below the article are clips from the live performance and a portion of the album.
