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

Johnny Mathis - When A Child Is Born (Soleado)

'When a Child is Born' is a popular Christmas song. The original melody was 'Soleado', a tune from 1972 by Ciro Dammicco (alias Zacar), composer for Italy's Daniel Santecruz Ensemble.

The English language lyrics were written a few years later by Fred Jay. They do not make specific mention of Christmas but the importance they attach to looking forward to the birth of one particular child somewhere, anywhere, suggests a reference to the birth of Jesus Christ, and the citing of "a tiny star" that "lights up way up high" may allude to the Star of Bethlehem. Fred Jay's lyrics have been sung by many artists over the years.

Johnny Mathis released his version of the song in 1976. Reaching number 1 in the IK Singles Charts Mathis version of the song has proved to be the most successfull.
