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

Grandmaster Melle and the Furious Five - White Lines

'White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)' is a song by Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash, released as a 12 inch in 1984 on Sugar Hill Records and became one of his signature songs. Although frequently credited on the records, Flash doesn't actually appear on the song or many of the Furious Five songs. 'White Lines' warns against the dangers of cocaine, addiction, and drug smuggling. The instantly recognizable bassline is sampled from a performance of the Sugar Hill house band playing Liquid Liquid's 'Cavern'. 'White Lines' peaked at number 47 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart in 1983. The song fared better in the United Kingdom, reaching number 7 on the UK Singles Chart in July of 1984 (and number 13 in the UK's top 50 songs of the year).
The video was directed by Spike Lee and starred Laurence Fishburne.
