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

Brenda Russell - Piano In The Dark

On Tuesday I was reading Chris Daniel's 80's Man blog and he posted the song 'Piano in the Dark' by Brenda Russell.

Well I realised that I had also not included it here on my little blog, and as I love this song I decided to rectify this little error. So here it is.

'Piano In The Dark' was released in early 1988, nine years after Russell's previous charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 (1979's 'So Good, So Right').

'Piano In The Dark' was the first single to be released from the 1988 album 'Get Here'.

The song gained heavy airplay and became Russell's biggest hit, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 8 on the R&B Chart and number 3 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. The song was also a moderate hit in the UK, peaking at 23.

The song earned Russell three Grammy Award nominations in 1989, including one for Song of the Year.

The B-Side 'In The Thick Of It' was taken from Russell's 1979 self titled album.

I have to say that like chris I too remember listening to this song on the late night radio stations that played the slow music as I went to sleep. Listening to it again is just a delight as I just love this soulfull classic song and I hope you enjoy it too.
