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

Dave Stewart And Barbara Gaskin - Locomotion

I had a request for this a while ago from Boom (sorry for delay)and it has taken me a little time to put it up here. I was putting up the 'it's My Party' track (that's the next one) as I just loved that but decided to kick off with this one instead. Hope you like it.

'The Loco-Motion' is a 1962 popular music song written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King. The song is notable for appearing in the American Top 5 three times – each time in a different decade: for Eva Boyd (under the stage name Little Eva) during 1962 (U.S. number 1); for Grand Funk Railroad in 1974 (U.S. number 1); and for Kylie Minogue in 1988 (U.S. number 3, number 2 in the UK).

However there is a lesser know version. Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin recorded their version of the song in 1986. It became the duo's last hit, reaching number 70 on the UK singles chart.

Don't know if a video was ever made for this. If there is one and someone is willing to share then please let me know.
