Richard Marx: Richard Marx - Manhattan Records - MTL 1017

£5.99

Product description

Richard Marx's bold and unpretentious debut album hit the world like a solid iron, implacable, uncommunicative steam train. The record, which would make history by containing four singles which reached the top three of the Billboard 100, the first of any male debut to do so. And it would set the tone of his career to come, in terms of consistency, in terms of the expectations he would succeed, of continuous dogged success and his impervious stolidity in the face of judgement.
For some years prior to this record, Marx was told that he lacked a certain star quality, a certain charisma. That his talents were best focused toward being a songwriter, for writing songs that he could sell to other artists. It is thanks to Marx's determination and gritty self belief, his almost arrogant contempt for those in the music business that had so called 'expertise' that this album even came to be. It was only thanks to Manhattan Records spotting him, of them recognising his talents, telling him not to let himself be blinded and poisoned by commercialism but ''to make an album I believed in.'' Which he certainly did, stating ''I saw this album as a challenge to show what I could really do." And, he certainly did. Songs such as ''Should've Known Better'', ''Don't Mean Nothing'' and ''Hold On To The Nights'' coursed through major radio stations like tropical storms. The album went triple platinum, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic wrote of it ''Richard Marx's self-titled debut album was a finely crafted record of mainstream pop/rock. ... Filled with carefully constructed radio-ready tracks, it was no surprise that the album became a huge hit." Furthermore, Marx was nominated for a Grammy for ''Best Rock Vocal Performance - Solo.''
Vinly is in fair condition, some dust. Box is in good condition.
