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

Kate Bush - The Dreaming

'The Dreaming' is the title song from Kate Bush's fourth studio album 'The Dreaming' and was released a single on 26 July 1982.

Bush hadn't released a single since 'Sat in Your Lap' thirteen months earlier. 'The Dreaming' made it to number 48 on the UK Singles Chart.

The song is about the destruction of Aboriginal homelands by white Australians in their quest for weapons-grade uranium.

Musical guest Rolf Harris plays the didgeridoo on the recording. Bird impersonator Percy Edwards provided sheep noises.

The original title for the track was 'The Abo Song', which unwittingly made use of a racial slur; promotional 12" copies were circulated before being recalled.

An alternate version of 'The Dreaming', entitled 'Dreamtime', was released by EMI as a single in Canada only. This version, also used as the UK single b-side, is usually referred to as an instrumental version of 'The Dreaming'. This is not strictly true in that while the track omits all the sung lead vocal lyrics it still retains most of the backing vocals such as the stretched dreamtime harmonies heard during the chorus. It is also of note that 'Dreamtime' contains both an extended intro and outro.
