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

Champaign - How 'Bout Us

Well it is Valentines day today so I thought I would share a couple of songs that I just love.  So here is the first.  Enjoy.

'How 'Bout Us' is a 1981 hit single recorded by R and B music group Champaign and composed by band keyboardist Dana Walden.

Originally released on the band's debut album of the same name, the title track peaked at number 12 on the US Hot 100 and number 5 on the UK Singles Charts. Of Champaign's seven charting singles, the song remains the group's most successful.

'How 'Bout Us' peaked at number 4 on the soul chart and was one of three releases to make the top 10 on the soul chart. The song was on the Hot 100 chart for 23 weeks, peaking at number 12 on 6 June 1981, and also reached the top of the Adult Contemporary chart for two weeks. The title track of Champaign's debut album and their first single, the tune combines instrumentals, traditional background vocals repeated multiple times, and poetic verses performed by Champaign's lead vocalist Pauli Carman to create a sound similar to other ballads released during the time.

Both the song and the album it debuted on where acclaimed by Allmusic who called it "a smooth, well-crafted pop-R and B topped by the creamy vocals of Pauli Carman and Rena Jones. This debut is a pop hybrid that sounds very promising, although the group never followed through adequately."
