Hello, today the 18th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock. As it happens i came across the current bilboard top40 earlier. Women (blond and black) Hip Hoppers, Enrique Iglesias and Justin Bieber. Now, i more or less disconnected from top 40's decades ago but it seems to me a sad state of affairs these days when the market is basicly comprised to black men and teen girls. No wonder those babyboomers keep on flying the flag for the Beatles, Bob Dylan and anything that sold many decades ago. Nonsense and nostalgia rule these days, the music industry has lost any baring, and the current artists are still adjusting to the digital age. Meanwhile i have to assume that hitmusic these days is more a multimedia event where causing enough stirs is more important then singing or the music..scandal sells.. a titty here a titty there and the bucks are flying. Obviously these strategies don't work aswell in much less hypocritical mainland Europe...they get to see those titties everywhere, a tip to those off to Amsterdam after you scored some joints take the train to the beach and get a double whammy.... or should i say triple.
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 accomodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.
Todays doublebubble Goldy Rhox mystery album was released 35 years and 21 days ago. Upon it's straight to platinum release the 5 previous platinum albums re-entered the US albumcharts aswell, a real splash. The double album was the first release on their own label, not their SwanSong but they wouldnt surpass on the 3 albums that would follow before fate dealt a harsh blow when their drummer suffocated in his own vomit. Given the luxury of a double format, the album mirrors every facet of the the bands repertoire, it represented the band at its most creative and most expressive. Spanning several years of recording, the album featured forays into a range of musical styles, including hard rock, eastern-influenced orchestral rock, driving funk, acoustic rock and roll , love ballad , blues rock and acoustic guitar instrumental. 5 star reviews all around at the time, it ranks no 70 in the rolling stone best ever 500 absolutely one you should have 'experienced' before you die.
