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

Pointer Sisters - Slow Hand

'Slow Hand' is a ballad written by John Bettis & James Bruce Clark recorded by the Pointer Sisters for their 1981 album 'Black & White' album and released in the spring of 1981 as that album's advance single.

Although its sultry style recalls the Pointer Sisters' first Top Ten hit: the 1978 number 2 hit 'Fire', 'Slow Hand' was not written for the group; in fact John Bettis would state "the Pointer Sisters were the furthest act from my mind."

Like 'Fire' - which also featured Anita Pointer on lead - 'Slow Hand' peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, kept from number 1 by 'Endless Love' by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.

'Slow Hand' reached that position in August 1981 when it also reached number 7 on the R&B chart. The Pointer Sisters' best Hot 100 showing would remain number 2 with a third hit: 'Jump (for My Love)', matching that peak in 1985.

'Slow Hand' also afforded the Pointer Sisters international success, including the first appearance by the group in the UK Top 30 with a number 10 peak in the Singles Chart.
