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

Big Country - Fields Of Fire

Big Country are a rock band born out of Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.
'Fields of Fire' (album version subtitled "400 Miles") is one of the biggest hits by the Scottish rock band Big Country. It was first released as a single in the United Kingdom in 1983 and included on the band's debut album 'The Crossing'.

The music video begins with a young boy playing with his toy train set. The members of the band are passengers on a train that has left the railway station and are seen playing their instruments inside their train coach. After going through a tunnel, the train is stopped because a Scotsman is playing the bagpipes on the railway line. The band then leave their carriage and follow the Scotsman to find themselves watching the 1746 Battle of Culloden

The song was a big hit, introducing the band to mainstream audiences in the United States in 1984 and reaching the top ten in the UK Singles Chart. On their album review of 'The Crossing', Rolling Stone Magazine noted that the song was "one of the great, resounding anthems of this or any other year" and praised the "bagpipelike single-string riffs". Big Country's vocalist and bassist Tony Butler has also claimed this song to be one of his favorites.
