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

Five Star - Crazy

'Crazy' is the name of a 1984 single by British pop group Five Star.

It was their third single and would later be included on their 1985 debut album Luxury of Life.

It was written by Gary Bell (who co-wrote their later hit 'System Addict'), and Anne Dudley, one of the UK's top female songwriters and composers.

This is one of a few that I did not get around to buying. If anyone has this to share, especially the Extended and Instrumental Versions, then let me know. Thank you.

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms

'Brothers in Arms' is a 1985 song by Dire Straits, appearing as the last track on the album of the same name. It peaked at number 16 in the UK.

There are actually two studio recorded versions of this song: the album version which is 6:55 seconds, and the shorter version which is 6:05 seconds and features slightly different (and shorter) solos at the beginning and end of the song. The version that appears on Dire Straits' greatest hits album, The Very Best of Dire Straits, is 4:55. The version featured on the live album On the Night contains an extra slide guitar solo and is 8:55.
Mark Knopfler usually played the song on a Gibson Les Paul guitar, rather than his usual Schecter "Stratocaster", and a Les Paul appears in the distinctive promo video, which is in the style of a charcoal drawing, interspersing scenes of the band playing with scenes of war. During Dire Straits' 1992 On Every Street tour, Knopfler used his Pensa Suhr MK1 for this song, like most of the others.

The single was re-released to promote the compilation album, which came out just in time for Christmas 1988, but this re-release was unsuccessful in all territories.
