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

Dollar - The Dollar - Album

'The Dollar Album' is the third and final studio album released by the pop group Dollar.

By its release in 1982, Dollar had seen a revival in fortunes following their previous, unsuccessful album. After teaming up with producer Trevor Horn in 1981, the group had enjoyed their biggest success with four hit singles; 'Hand Held in Black and White', 'Mirror Mirror (Mon Amor)', 'Give Me Back My Heart' and 'Videotheque'.

Members David Van Day and Thereza Bazar began work on a new album and wrote and produced the remainder of the tracks themselves. A fifth single, 'Give Me Some Kinda Magic', was released to coincide with the album.

Although it became another top 40 hit, it failed to chart as highly as the previous four singles.

Despite containing five Top 40 singles and a television advertising campaign, the album itself did not fare as well as expected, though it still became their biggest seller, peaking at no.18 and was certified Silver by the BPI.

In early 1983, Dollar were on a promotional tour of Japan with their new single 'Two Hearts'. The formerly dating couple were by this time finding it difficult to continue working together and decided to split. The single was never released in the UK. Dollar reformed in 1986 and despite four single releases, including a top 10 hit, the group never released another album.
