RhoDeo 1352 Goldy Rhox 141

Hello, today the 141th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock in the darklight is an English musician (born 30 March 1945), singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. He ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and fourth in Gibson's "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time"

For most of the 1970s, his output bore the influence of the mellow style of JJ Cale and the reggae of Bob Marley. His version of Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" helped reggae reach a mass market. Two of his most popular recordings were "Layla", recorded by Derek and the Dominos, another band he formed, and Robert Johnson's "Crossroads", recorded by Cream. He has been the recipient of 17 Grammy Awards, and the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. In 2004, he was awarded a CBE at Buckingham Palace for services to music.

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 was released May 1977, is the fifth studio album by todays artist. The album was titled after artist's nickname, which was given to him by Giorgio Gomelsky. The album peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200, and produced three hit singles on the Hot 100: "Lay Down Sally", "Wonderful Tonight" and "Cocaine". This is laid-back virtuosity the man and his band are never flashy, their playing is masterful and assured. That assurance and the album's eclectic material make today's mystery album rank with 461 Ocean Boulevard as his best albums. In 2003, today's multiple platinum mystery album was ranked number 325 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

In 2012, a remastered two-CD 35th anniversary "deluxe edition" of today's mystery album was released. The first disc consists of the remastered album, with additional bonus tracks and studio jam sessions. Here today

Just come across your blog, great mix of genres, and I've found things that I really like that I haven't really been exposed to before. Look forward to the next one, David
