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

Japan - Life In Tokyo

'Life in Tokyo' was Japan's 5th single.

Released originally in 1979, on the Hansa Record Label, the single failed to make any impact on the UK Singles Charts.

Fast forward to 1981 and Japan are having some success on the Virgin Record Label. Due to this Hansa decided to cash in and release the single for a 2nd time. Unfortunatly this didn't pay off as the single failed to reach the charts.

We move again to 1982 and Japan are making it big now. Hansa decide to re-mix the single and try releasing it again this time with the bands approval. With Sylvian co-ordinating the Sleeve design, this time the relase pays off as the single made it to number 28 in the UK Singles Chart.

A classic Japan song with a big Giorgio Moroder production.
