RhoDeo 1411 Goldy Rhox 152

Hello, today the 152st post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock in the darklight are an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City by Lou Reed and John Cale, who both went on to find success as solo artists. Although experiencing little commercial success while together, the band is often cited by many critics as one of the most important and influential groups of the 1960s. Andy Warhol managed them and it was the house band at his studio, the Factory, and his Exploding Plastic Inevitable events. The provocative lyrics of some of the band's songs gave a nihilistic outlook to some of their music.

Their 1967 debut album, was named the 13th Greatest Album of All Time, and the "most prophetic rock album ever made" by Rolling Stone in 2003. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the band No. 19 on its list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time"

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 November, 1970 is the fourth studio album released by today's New York rock band. It was the final album recorded featuring Lou Reed, who had left the band shortly before its release. The album was a commercial effort aimed at radio play, another step away from the Warhol-influenced days. The album's title refers to their label's request that the band produce an album "loaded with hits". Doug Yule said. When asked about the shortened versions of "Sweet Jane" and "New Age" and Reed's long-standing claims that they were re-edited without his consent, Yule claimed that Reed had in-fact edited the songs himself. "He edited it. You have to understand at the time, the motivation was... Lou was, and all of us were, intent on one thing and that was to be successful and what you had to do to be successful in music, was you had to have a hit, and a hit had to be uptempo, short, and with no digressions, straight ahead basically, you wanted a hook and something to feed the hook and that was it. "Sweet Jane" was arranged just exactly the way it is on the original Loaded release exactly for that reason—to be a hit! 'Who Loves The Sun' was done exactly that way for that reason—to be a hit. The album holds two well-known songs: "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll". These two songs are still heard regularly on classic rock FM radio stations. In 2003, it was #109 on Rolling Stone's reissue of their 500 greatest albums of all time. On February 18, 1997, Rhino Records released a "Fully Loaded" two-CD remastered reissue of today's mystery album, which contained numerous alternate takes, alternate mixes and demo versions of songs and outtakes. Here to get the extended original album.
