RhoDeo 1324 Goldy Rhox 113

Hello, today the 113th post of GoldyRhox, classic rock pop.  Today's focus is on a rock band founded in London in 1968 by a group of musicians from western England. Fripp, Lake, McDonald, and Michael Giles -- with satellite member Sinfield writing their lyrics and later running their light show, among other functions -- officially blended on January 13, 1969, deriving the name from one of Sinfield's songtitles. Widely recognised as a foundational progressive rock group, the band have incorporated diverse influences and instrumentation during their history (including jazz and folk music, classical and experimental music, psychedelic rock, hard rock and heavy metal, New Wave, gamelan, electronica and drum and bass). They have been influential to many contemporary musical artists and have gained a large following, despite garnering little radio or music video airplay.

Though originating in England, the band have had a mixture of English and American personnel since 1981. The band's line-up has persistently altered throughout their existence, with eighteen musicians and two lyricists passing through the ranks. The only musician to appear in every line-up of the band has been founding guitarist Robert Fripp, although drummer Bill Bruford was a member from 1972 to 1998 and guitarist Adrian Belew has been a consistent member since 1981.

Since reforming for the third time (in 1994), the band have blended aspects of their 1980s and 1970s sound with influences from more recent musical genres such as industrial rock and grunge. The band’s efforts to blend additional elements into their music have continued into the 21st century, with more recent developments including drum and bass-styled rhythm loops and extensive use of MIDI and guitar synthesis.

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.

Today's mystery album is the group's definitive album, and one of the most daring debut albums ever recorded by anybody. At the time, it blew all of the progressive/psychedelic competition out of the running, although it was almost too good for the band's own good -- it took them nearly four years to come up with a record as strong or concise. Although they still exist 4 decades later, this was to be their only gold album, it reached number five on the British charts, and is certified gold in the United States. The album is generally viewed as one of the strongest of the progressive rock genre, where the band largely stripped away the blues-based foundations of rock music and mixed together jazz and classical symphonic elements. In his 1997 book Rocking the Classics, critic and musicologist Edward Macan notes that today's mystery album "may be the most influential progressive rock album ever released"

The first generation stereo master tapes for the album were finally rediscovered in a storage vault. A 2004 HDCD version (described as the "Original Master Edition", DGM0501) was released on Robert Fripp's Discipline Global Mobile label. This release has greatly improved sound over previous CD editions. Modern digital technology was used to repair high frequency problems caused during the original mixing sessions. 24 bit mastering was also used to enhance the sound. This here the 2009 remaster

Barry Godber (1946–1970), a computer programmer, painted the album cover. Godber died in February 1970 of a heart attack age 24, shortly after the album's release. It was his only album cover...
