Today 1988 Brook Benton died 1

Today 1898 Paul Robeson, American singer and civil rights activist was born. He died 1976_january_23. Well known songs by him were Ol' Man River, Joshua Fit De Battle Of Jericho and Summertime. A few years ago I read his autobiography. Interesting stuff. Maybe I can make an article about this great man in the future.

Second to mention is Brook Benton though in a sad way. Today we remember the day he died in 1988.
Brook Benton (19 September 1931 — 9 April 1988) was an American singer and songwriter who was popular with rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and pop music audiences during the late 1950s and early 1960s, when he scored hits such as It's Just A Matter Of Time and Endlessly, many of which he co-wrote.
He made a comeback in 1970 with the ballad Rainy Night in Georgia. Benton scored over 50 Billboard chart hits as an artist, and also wrote hits for other performers.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080409
The file is a small 45MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that, neither about the sleeve.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.

When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
