RhoDeo 1201 Goldy Rhox

Hello, today the 53rd post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock, in the darklight a UK artist who once drummed for a successful symphonic band where he took over as the leadsinger no longer wanted to be part of the show, he once had so brilliantly created..duh To the surprise of the fans the band didn't collapse but found new footing thanks to our mystery artist and went on to score even some hit successes . in part because our mystery man had gone solo and started a series of highly commercial solo albums. According to Atlantic Records, his total worldwide sales as a solo artist, as of 2000, were 150 million. He has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including seven Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards—winning Best British Male three times, an Academy Award, and two Golden Globes for his solo work. In 2008, he was ranked the 22nd most successful artist on the "The Billboard Hot 100 Top All-Time Artists".

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 his debut solo album, released in February 1981 on the Virgin label internationally and Atlantic Records in North America. The album includes a hit single, whose dark mood was inspired by the fallout of Collins' first marriage, as is most of the album. He decided to incorporate an R&B horn section, hiring the Phenix Horns, who played backup for Earth, Wind & Fire. He refused to listen to friends who had advised him not to use the horns and they would play a major role for most of his solo career.

He also used another then-controversial method in using drum programming rather than just live drum instrumentation despite his reputation as a drummer. Not all doom and gloom though there's a track too written for Jill Tavelman who later became his 2nd wife. Sales of the album reached five million alone in the United States and went five-times platinum in the United Kingdom and ten-times platinum in Canada. No solo tour was produced from this album and he would not perform live as a solo artist until 1982.
