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

Level 42 - Sandstorm

1979 saw the band Level 42 coming together and beginning to develop their unique style. By 1980 the band had signed to Elite records.

This is where it gets interesting.

Elite records produced a White Label 12 inch record to promote 2 artists.

Released in either 1979 or 1980 1100 white label records (Elite DAZZ-04) were produced commercially (however this is sometimes disputed as only being 500).

Level 42 provided the B-side of the 12 inch with the instrumental track 'Sandstorm'.

The A-side was provided by Powerline (an alias for Andy Sojka) with the rare sax version of 'Journey to...'.

The release was purely commercial, the 'white labels' were used to give the record 'underground' credibility.

This 12 inch is now one of the most sort after by Level 42 fans as it is their first commercially available record.
