HEAVENS EDGE (+BONUS)
Digitally remastered edition of this 1989 album from the Philly Hard Rock outfit. It's no secret that Philadelphia has, over the years, become synonymous with the sweet sound of meticulously crafted Soul and R&B. However, if you dig a little deeper, you'll uncover a thriving Hard Rock scene, best exemplified in the late '80s by the banshee wail of bands like Cinderella, Britny Fox and Tangier. Add to that list the name of Heavens Edge and suddenly you've got a pack of lean 'n' mean rockers that rivaled both Los Angeles and New York for sheer quality and bravado. Assembled from the cream of local Philly bands, Heavens Edge rapidly snagged a substantial deal with industry powerhouse Columbia Records, who at the time were a label eager to increase their market share of profitable melodic Rock acts. Renowned British producer Neil Kernon (Dokken, Queensryche, Autograph etc) was brought in to produce but when the finished album was delivered they found a new label hierarchy had taken over... one much more fixated on the embryonic sounds of Grunge. Rock Candy. 2010.
