Hello, today the 55th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock, in the darklight a US artist, who initially reached a peak in worldwide fame (and sales) as part of a duo, however they split at the height of their success (Goldy Rhox 36).

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 was a hit, topping the UK Album Chart, and reaching number three on the US Billboard 200. Reaching 5x platinum in both countries. The album won the 1986 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, while the title song won the 1987 Grammy for Record of the Year. In 2007, the album was added to the United States National Recording Registry. It is #81 on the list of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In the Albums video, the artist states that he considers the title track the best song he has ever written.

The album features an eclectic mixture of musical styles including pop, a cappella, isicathamiya, rock, and mbaqanga. Much of the album was recorded in South Africa, and it features many South African musicians and groups. The worldwide success of the album introduced some of the musicians, especially the vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, to global audiences of their own. Included were American 'roots' influences with tracks featuring Zydeco and Tex-Mex musicians. You can get your remaster here.
