RhoDeo 1132 Goldy Rhox 35

Hello, today the 35th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock. Todays artists were a bit of a one hit wonder, despite having credebility, touring with the Doors f.i., and after the huge hit succes the band faded away, despite having been in prime postion as a psychedelic rock band. Maybe it was because the title of that hit sounded more then a spell than the supposedly "in the garden of Eden" which seems to me to be a bit of a stretch.

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accomodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Todays mystery album is the 31st best-selling album in the world, selling more than 25 million copies. The 17-minute title track of their second album, became a Top Thirty hit in the US and made the top ten on the Dutch chart. The members when it was recorded were Doug Ingle (organ and vocals), Lee Dorman (bass guitar), Ron Bushy (drums), and 17-year-old Erik Keith Brann. The album sold over three million copies by the end of 1970, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in December 1968. According to legend, the group was so stoned when they recorded the track that they could neither pronounce the title "In the Garden of Eden" or end the track, so it rambles on for a full 17 minutes, which to some listeners sounds like eternity. But that's the essence of its appeal -- it's the epitome of heavy psychedelic excess, encapsulating the most indulgent tendencies of the era. It became a landmarks of the psychedellic rock music from California in the late sixties, the soundtrack to many an orgy. Afterwards the band stumbled on but never regained the spotlight and as such the boys from San Diego were mostly a one hit wonder but what a hit it was. Here in remastered version topped up by an even longer live version of Da Vida together with the single version that made it all possible.
