Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Breathe - All That Jazz - Album

‘All That Jazz’ is the title of the debut album by Breathe and was actually released in Britain during late 1987, with the original cover left and minus the single 'Don't Tell Me Lies', via A&M Records, but for a time proved so much of a sleeper. The album was strictly speaking angled more toward the R&B side of pop music. Comparisons were drawn between Breathe and fellow Brit-pop acts Johnny Hates Jazz and Danny Wilson. It’s true to say that the British pop scene was in pretty decent shape during the second half of the 80s, with a plethora of quality acts jostling for commercial and critical attention. There wasn’t anything earth shattering to set Breathe apart from the rest of the pack, but the lengthy amount of time they spent in working on songs for ‘All That Jazz’ paid off in terms of a consistency of quality not always evident on their contemporaries work.

The album was re-released in 1988 with the new cover, see left and including the single 'Don't tell me lies'. The song to finally open the floodgates for Breathe was the sublime love ballad ‘Hands To Heaven’. David Glasper’s warm vocal style and slick production qualities helped to produce a finished product that ascended all the way to number 4 on the UK Singles charts in 1988. Regrettably Bassist Michael Delahunty, one of the original quartet who had recorded ‘All That Jazz’ between 1985 and 1987, had already left the band before the album finally took off. The album made it to number 22 in the UK Album charts.
