RhoDeo 1152 Goldy Rhox

Hello, today the 52nd post of Goldy Rhox, classic pop rock, in the darklight a UK artist who once fueled the best-selling band in history with his writings, recordings over four decades after the break-up still in demand. He had a solo career and as of 2010, his solo album sales in the United States exceed 14 million units, and as writer, co-writer or performer, he is responsible for 25 number-one singles on the US Hot 100 chart. In 2002, a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted him eighth, and in 2008, Rolling Stone ranked him the fifth-greatest singer of all-time.

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 accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Todays mystery album is a retrospective compilation album of music from his 1970s solo career. The album was released on vinyl in 1982, later being remastered and released on CD in 1989. It was the first album to be issued following the singer's death in 1980. The album includes most of his hit singles and various selections from the majority of his solo albums. The Collection did extremely well, reaching #1 in the UK and peaking at #33 in the US where it would eventually reach triple platinum. The front and back covers for the album were taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on 8 December 1980, the day he was murdered.
