RhoDeo 1314 Goldy Rhox 103

Hello, today the 52nd post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock, in the darklight a UK artist who once fuelled the best-selling band in history with his writings, recordings over four decades after the break-up are 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.

The man who cowardly murdered him the 8th of December 1980 still rots in jail.

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 released on the same day in both the UK and US, 11 December 1970. The album was particularly successful in the Netherlands, knocking George Harrison's blockbuster All Things Must Pass from the top of the chart and remaining at number one for seven consecutive weeks. The album is generally considered one of his finest solo albums, documenting with honesty and artistic integrity his emotional and mental state at that point in his career. In 2003, it was placed at number 22 in the Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
