From The Beatles Rarity:

On November 29th 2003 the first 46664 Concert was held at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa. Hosted by Nelson Mandela, the goal of the concert was to raise awareness of the spread of HIV/AIDS in their country. 46664 was actually Mandela’s identification number while the anti-apartheid activist was imprisoned from 1964-1990. The concert included a long list of well-known musical acts such as Peter Gabriel, Brian May & Roger Taylor (of Queen), Bob Geldof, Jimmy Cliff, Robert Plant and much more.

Dave Stewart, a primary organizer of the event, not only performed as 1/2 of The Eurythmics but also followed up his support of the cause by meeting up with Paul McCartney who was at Abbey Road Studios back in London working on Memory Almost Full. Dave and Paul had agreed to collaborate on a song called “Whole Life” to be released as one of the tracks on an EP titled 46664 One Year On. Like the earlier concert event, sales of the EP were to benefit the campaign against AIDS in Africa.

“Whole Life,” was written and performed by both Dave and Paul, who does an energetic lead vocal while Dave plays guitar. The two are joined by Paul’s touring band (Brian Ray, Rusty Anderson, Paul “Wix” Wickens and Abe Laboriel Jr.).

The “46664 One Year On” EP was released on physical support only in Spain, the rest of the world only got an Apple iTunes exclusive release on January 11th, 2005.
