– Los Angeles Angels CD-r

The Los Angeles Angels (I first thought this would be a female group, but no) recorded for Proverb and left us an LP and several 45rpm releases. The album was titled “Blow Wind Blow” (later reissued as “The Circle”) and featured several of the group’s single sides plus a few album-only tracks. The group has potential, but the song selection could have been much better and the production a little more careful. Songs like “How Great Thou Art” and “Closer Walk” (“Just A Closer Walk With Thee”) will not be missed when I won’t ever hear them again (in fact: regardless if it’s the Los Angeles Angels or whatever other group singing!).  Luckily, the album also contains a few fine tracks, like “Something Within Me”, “The Circle” and a rousing version of “The Saints” (“When The Saints Go Marching In”, recorded live).

The original album is quite rare but now available as CD-r or as a download. Check the CD-r’s page under For Sale to order, or click on the image below to get more album details and an MP3 to listen to.
