RhoDeo 1512 Goldy Rhox 202

Hello, so the BBC decided political correctness is an essentiel trait of their overpaid (no PC there) midmanegement class and the public will have to shell out another 3 pounds a year for their licence fee so that these gits can howl with their friends. Yes the UK is a country with a bizarre bully culture. That said how these BBC gits didn't recognize Lord Clarksen Blackadder and his halfwit servent Baldrick who's real life version Tymon looks amazingly like Baldrick. Anyway we all laughed how halfwit Baldrick was treated by Lord Blackadder. But now in this day and age the hypocrites all fall over themselves to oust the Lord of Top Gear. Should Cameronn win the upcoming election i hope he will enoble Clarkson just to spite the BBC...

Today the 201st post of Goldy Rhox, classic pop rock. Todays artist in the blacklight is an American musician, actor and singer-songwriter. His fame, influence, and commercial success began as part of the duo formed in 1964 with musical partner Art Garfunkel. our mystery man wrote nearly all of the pair's songs, including three that reached No. 1 on the U.S. singles charts: "The Sound of Silence", "Mrs. Robinson", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". The duo split up in 1970 at the height of their popularity, and our mystery man began a successful solo career as a guitarist and singer-songwriter, recording three highly acclaimed albums over the next five years. In 1986, he released Graceland, an album inspired by South African township music. Our mystery man also wrote and starred in the film One-Trick Pony (1980) and co-wrote the Broadway musical The Capeman (1998) with the poet Derek Walcott.

Our mystery man has earned 12 Grammys for his solo and collaborative work, including the Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2006 was selected as one of the "100 People Who Shaped the World" by Time magazine. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine named him as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists. Among many other honors, our mystery man was the first recipient of the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in 2007. Our man is one of a small number of performers who are named as the copyright owner on their recordings (most records have the recording company as the named owner of the recording).

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 is the fourth studio album by our mystery man. Recorded in 1975, the album produced four US Top 40 hits, "Gone at Last" (#23), "My Little Town" , "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" (#1) and the title track (#40). It won two Grammy Awards for Album of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1976. Most critics agree that today's mystery album is one of today's mystery man's finest albums.  Here to get from its 2013 box set extended remaster..N'Joy
