Только если у переиздания будет такой же мастеринг, как и у переиздания единственного альбома Diving For Pearls, то в коллекции придется иметь оба CD – первопресс и переиздание. Впрочем, у меня-то и первопресса нет – надо будет озаботиться его приобретением.
Heaven’s Edge “Heaven’s Edge” CANDY083
It's no secret that Philadelphia has, over the years, become synonymous with the sweet sound of meticulously manufactured soul and r'n'b. However, if you dig a little deeper, you'll uncover a thriving hard rock scene best exemplified by the late 80s 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 could – and did – rival both Los Angeles and New York for sheer quality and bravado. Assembled from the cream of local Phili 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 tapped to produce but when the album was delivered they found a new label hierarchy had taken over… one much more fixated on the embryonic sounds of grunge. Originally released in 1989, 'Heavens Edge' contained a bumper selection of loud and proud hard rock anthems, tracks that were easily comparable to their contemporaries bringing to mind a delicious blend of Bon Jovi, Ratt and Dokken; fiery melodic rock with a finger firmly on the trigger all wrapped up in production to die for. It doesn't get much better than this.
