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

David Sylvian - Silver Moon

Silver Moon was the 6th Single to be released by David Sylvian and the 2nd released from the ‘Gone to Earth’ Album. The single was released in September 1986 and made it to Number 83 in the Uk charts. The main reason for the poor chart placing was that the single was released with the lack of any unique B-Side tracks, as the B-side was taken straight from the ‘Gone to Earth’ Album. This meant that a lot of fans did not bother to get the single when it was released. Coupled this with poor air play meant the single did badly in the charts.

As with other later releases Sylvian used the bautiful artwork by Russell Mills, which is very evident on the Limited Edition Foldout Sleeve release. I love this single by Sylvian because of his warm, emotional and pleasant voice and, for me, the uplifting style of music make it an enjoyable song.

Sylvian 2nd Album ‘Gone to Earth’ was an ambitious two-record set which further flouted conventional and commercial wisdom by featuring one record of atmospheric vocal tracks and a second record consisting of ambient instrumentals. The album contained significant contributions from noted guitarists Bill Nelson.
