Remember the band Sons of Angels? Hard Rock Hideout featured them in Rare Rock Rewind a little over a year ago. Their debut CD has been out of print since the mid 90’s. It is a good disc that is not typical of the hair metal coming out in the late 80’s or early 90’s.
The fine folks at Wounded Bird Records have finally given this CD the reissue treatment.
Check out the song “Cowgirl” below. This CD is available for purchase at this link.
Their self titled disc disappeared about as fast as it arrived. The band had a little bit of success, as a music video was released for the song Cowgirl. The band managed to sell 150,000 copies of the CD, but disappeared before long.
Unlike many of the hair metal CD’s of the early 90’s, this one actually has a little more substance. Great vocals, and a funky upbeat vibe drive these tunes. While Cowgirl is the obvious hit, there isn’t a bad song on this disc.
I once owned a copy of this on cassette tape, but never replaced it until last year. I was shocked to find a used copy of this disc in 2007. A quick internet search, and I found that you can still grab this disc for under 10 bucks (for a used copy) through Amazon.com, and occasionally on EBay. It is way out of print, but well worth the price of admission.
