RhoDeo 1317 Goldy Rhox 106

Hello, today the 106th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock, in the darklight is a band who were, from the outset, a prototype of the 'rock supergroup' with the members coming from The Nice , King Crimson and Atomic Rooster. They found success in the 1970s and have sold over forty million albums and headlined large stadium concerts. The band consists of Keith(keyboards), Greg (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl (drums, percussion). They are one of the most popular and commercially successful progressive rock bands.

Their sound is dominated by the Hammond organ and Moog synthesizer of the flamboyant Keith. The band's compositions are heavily influenced by classical music in addition to jazz and – at least in their early years – hard rock. Many of their pieces are arrangements of, or contain quotations from, classical music, and they can be said to fit into the sub-genre of symphonic rock. The spilt up in 1979 In 1991, they reformed and issued a 1992 comeback album, Black Moon, on JVC. Their 1992–93 world tours were successful, physical problems blocked too much touring and by 1998 it was all over. Until 0n 25 July 2010, they played a one-off 40th anniversary concert, headlining the High Voltage Festival event in Victoria Park, London. The entire concert was later released as the double-CD live album High Voltage.

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 the third album by the band, released in the july 1972. The front cover designed by Hipgnosis depicts Keith, Greg, and Carl, while the interior of the original gatefold sleeve features a photomontage showing multiple images of the band in Epping Forest carpeted with autumn leaves.

After the heavily distorted bass and doomsday church organ of their debut album, the exhilarating prog rock of epic proportions on Tarkus, Todays mystery album, features the trio settling down in more crowd-pleasing pastures. Actually, the group was gaining in maturity what they lost in raw energy. Every track on this album has been carefully thought, arranged, and performed to perfection, a process that also included some form of sterilization. The acoustic ballad "From the Beginning" put the group on the charts for a second time. The adaptation of Aaron Copland's "Hoedown" also yielded a crowd-pleaser. By 1972, Eddie Offord's recording and producing techniques had reached a peak. He provided a lush, comfy finish to the album that made it particularly suited for living-room listening and the FM airwaves. Here getting the MFSL treatment
