If you click on the above "Sound of Change Concert" link, you will be privy to but one example of a highly articulate and passionate Madonna discourse, in highlighting the terrible history of gender inequality in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and her support of girls education in those countries through her Ray of Light Foundation.

P.S. Do you have anything to add on topic?

The best era of Madonna is 1981-1986 she lost me as a fan after the horrible Erotica cd was issued.Worse pos cd ever.
Was her vocals pitched on the 1st 2 albums?Sounds like they are.

Re: Madonna - demos, rehearsals & outtakes

Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:35 am

For me, her best albums are Ray of Light and Like a prayer

There are files "available" from this period, but most tend to be in mp3.

There's also an excellent official [though unauthorized] CD called "Pre-Madonna," which is made up of early demos from the collection of Stephen Bray.
