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

The Communards - Don't Leave Me This Way

'Don't Leave Me This Way' was originally an R&B / Soul / disco song written by Kenneth Gamble, Leon Huff, and Cary Gilbert. The song first charted for Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, an act on Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International label in 1975 and made it to number 5 in the UK Singles Chart.

The single was later released by Thelma Houston in 1976 was more of an overt disco arrangement and mad it to number 13 in the UK singles Chart.

Finally 'Don't Leave Me This Way was again covered by The Communards Nine years later in 1986, in an avowedly Hi-NRG version. This recording topped the UK charts for four weeks in September 1986, becoming the biggest selling record of the year in the process. The featured guest vocalist was jazz singer Sarah Jane Morris. The song only reached number 40 on the US Billboard Hot 100 but did top the Billboard Dance chart. Several remixes were issued, notably the Son of Gotham City Mix' which was split across two sides of a 12" single and ran for a total of 22 minutes 55 seconds.
