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

Yazz & The Plastic Population - The Only Way Is Up

'The Only Way Is Up' is a song written by George Jackson and Johnny Henderson and originally released in 1980 as single by soul singer Otis Clay.

In 1988, it became a chart-topping single for Yazz and the Plastic Population. The Yazz version was produced by Jonathan Moore and Matt Black (better known as dance duo Coldcut who had worked with Yazz on their hit single "Doctorin' the House").

Released as a single in July 1988, 'The Only Way Is Up' became an instant smash, spending five weeks at number 1 in the UK, and ultimately became the second biggest selling single of the year. In the United States, however, it fared less well, peaking at number 96 on the Billboard Hot 100, though it did reach number 2 on the Billboard dance chart. The song's opening horn blast is a sample from Sharon Redd's 1982 dance classic 'Beat the Street'.
