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

All About Eve - Martha's Harbour

All about Eve's success was slowly rising, until this single was released. 'Martha's harbour', a rather uncharacteristic ballad by the band, was their first and last top 10 hit in the UK, peaking at number 10 and helping the group's self titled debut album reach number 7 in the UK albums chart.

On its creation, Julianne Regan commented: 'This song happened by accident when we were recording the first album. It was one of those things when we had the day off and we were sat in this very idyllic setting beneath a willow tree besides a stream by this beautiful residential recording studio and it just came out so naturally. It was a miracle of a little song and its very dear to us because of that, because it was very pure, a really happy accident. Everybody went to the pub and we put it down and by the time they got back Martha's Harbour was committed to tape. Martha's Harbour is a fictitious backdrop for this happening.'

The song is also well-known for an incident on the popular BBC UK music show Top Of The Pops, when the group, ready to do a mimed (as was BBC policy at the time) performance of their hit, Julianne Regan and Tim Bricheno can't hear the backing track for the first half of the song, so are just sitting there with the track playing to TV viewers. Due to this error on the part of the BBC, the band were invited back the following week and insisted on playing the song live. Shame that this is one of the main reasons they are remembered but it probably contributed to their success at the time - this single rose up the charts for the next two weeks!

This is one of the most beautiful songs of the 80's. I loved this when it was released and loved it when I saw them perform it live.
