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 Beat - Tears Of A Clown

'The Tears of a Clown' is a 1967 song by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles for the Tamla (Motown) label, originally released on the 1967 album Make It Happen.

The song was re-released in the United Kingdom as a single in September 1970, where it became a number-one hit on the UK singles chart.

Subsequently, Motown released 'The Tears of a Clown' as a single in the United States as well, where it quickly became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Singles Chart.

In November 1979 The Beat, or English Beat as they were known in the U.S., released their debut single, entitled 'Tears Of A Clown'. This was their first and only release on the 2 Tone record label. The B side was 'Ranking Full Stop'.

Neither track initially appeared on an album but both were added to their debut, 'I Just Can't Stop It', on a subsequent release. The single reached the number 6 spot on the U.K. singles chart.
