THE BANDWAGON - BREAKIN' DOWN THE WALLS OF HEARTACHE


Stomper!

Hearkening back to a sound similar to Motown 1965, it's no surprise that this US group hit BIG in England with this, the debut single from this Rochester, NY group featuring lead singer Johnnie Johnson.

While I whole heartedly throw myself into this entire record, it's the false ending that really snags me.

The song has been a UK club staple since its release, and has also seen a number of cover versions.

from 1968...

Derek,
You might be surprised to hear this single charted in Philadelphia on Top 40 powerhouse WFIL shortly after its release.

am i the only one having trouble downloading this file, now that mediafire wants one to join? If you select the free option, it 'conveniently' doesn't work...

anyone else having this problem?

Yes, me, I'm having this problem. I'm just getting a mediafire page with the name of the file and it's URL, but no obviouse download option. I even signed up with them but that does nothing, I've tried Firefox, IE and now Google chrome and nothing works. I'm hoping if I wait for some time the problem will cure itself.

In the meantime I'll read Derek's song descriptions and use my imagination.

try again. Seems like mediafire was down for a bit yesterday. My download log shows that hundreds of people got it, though.
