Harlequinn Angel - 1990 Rock And Roll Heaven

ARTIST: Harlequinn Angel
ALBUM: Rock And Roll Heaven
LABEL: EBS Records
YEAR: 1990


LINEUP: Jann Coe - vocals * Denver Dewitt - guitars * Robb Rudd - bass * Billy Welch - keyboards * Brian Dewitt - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Good Time * 02 Searchin' * 03 I Alone * 04 Eye Spy * 05 Angel Goodbye

You can thank Edwin (a.k.a aorheart) for bringing this rare American melodic rock outfit to our attention. Formed in the 80's and from Alabama it would appear, this female fronted band played all throughout the midwest, southern and eastern parts of the US, bringing their Heart styled brand of rock to the masses. Judging by what scant detail is available on the Net, they only ever released 'Rock And Roll Heaven' as a 5-track cassette release on the EBS Records label. It also seems the band had a Christian background, while singer Jann Coe was the focal point with her excellent vocal and appearance giving HA that extra edge.

The Songs
The five tracks recorded here are superb, and the styles range from rampant hard rock to exquisite ballads. Take the opener 'Good Time' which is full throttle hard rock, with an accelerated tempo and flailing guitar riffs and solos. Wow! 'Searchin' returns the band to the middle ground, a keyboard theme keeping it in AOR territory. It's ballad time when 'I Alone' lands in your ear-space. Beautiful stuff, and delivered with finesse. This girl can really sing! Kicking up some heels once more, 'I Spy' changes styles to a harder pop/rock sound, while 'Angel Goodbye' is the second ballad, and it soars firstly, before turning into a pomp beauty.. where vocals and keyboards ham it up until the lead guitar kicks in. Wow moment number 2.

In Summary
I'm just thinking what this band could've done if signed to a huge label and with an even bigger production! It's immense as it is. I wonder how other undiscovered rarities are out there of this quality? You can see a few videos of Harlequinn Angel out there on YouTube which are relatively easy to spot. Pretty damn impressive if you ask me.
