Forgotten Hard Rock Albums: Heavens Edge - "Heavens Edge"

Recommended Posts

A new entry in my forgotten hard rock albums series.

It didn't take long for me to dig this PA band. Being a Mid-Atlantic hard rock junkie, I waited and anticipated this album.

And boy was I not disappointed.

Bad Reputation, Find A Way, Play Dirty and Skin To Skin are all killers. The album did have a few fillers though but still an outstanding CD!!

Another one of those bands that came out a few years too late and signed with a label that didn't promote them very well.  I played this one to death back in 1990.  The four tracks you mentioned along with Come Play the Game were my favorites.   The sound on this was huge, another great production job by Neil Kernon.   They were a good live band as well.

Find Another Way is an amazing song.

First time I heard this album was in Bali soon after it was released.
A great time. You'd walk down the streets past all the music stores full of cassettes blasting music out into the street, and you'd hear songs like this and walk in any just the album for a few bucks.
You'd come home with a bag full of music. All pirated but I'd always repurchase the ones I likes on record or CD.

Another fun song on that disc was the one with the lyric "as long as I've got a face, that's it. You know you've got a place to sit"

good stuff, only one album but very solid.....wish they would put out another album

You are aware of 'Some Other Place... Some Other Time,' aren't you? Not exactly big budget label quality, but a better than adequate recording for sure. And more importantly, songs are arguably even better (overall) than the debut;





1.      Rock Steady             
2.      Some Other Place, Some Other Time             
3.      Jacky            
4.      Jump on It             
5.      Just Another Fire             
6.      Back Seat Driver             
7.      Cuts Both Ways             
8.      Call My Name             
9.      Just Can't Cry Anymore             
10.      Roller Coaster            

(later more average recordings)
11.      Take Me By the Hand             
12.      The Rhythm             
13.      Please Baby Please             
14.      Every Inch a Woman             
15.      Say What You Will            
16.      Nice and Easy

    • From Escape Music: Escape Music pleased to announce the release date for RADAR - Lost In The Atlantic. The CD will be limited edition to 1000 copies only! All will be numbered 1-1000 and will include a post card hand signed by the band! First time On CD!!! Radar was formed in 1981 when David West, Rod Jordan & Gary Stevenson met at the ABC Music Store in Surrey England, where David & Gary were working as guitar & keyboard demonstrators. They set up an 8 track-recording studio ‘Secret Studios’ in West London where they composed their first recordings. In 1983 Radar was signed to Warner Bros Publishing UK and their journey began. During this time guitar player Gary Stevenson also produced ‘outside’ bands at Secret studios, one of them being an unknown duo called ‘Go West’. Gary also used David West on this project and after a few demos the Manager of the band ‘John Glover’ was impressed enough with the work that he commissioned Gary to produce 2 tracks ‘We Close Our Eyes’ & ‘Call Me’ at Chipping Norton Studios in Oxfordshire. These songs & productions caused a stir in the music business at the time and Go West had many record deal offers from major record companies. The band wanted to stay with Gary as producer so signed with Chrysalis Records who were happy to do this, and the rest is history. Go West went on to become the ‘Best Newcomers’ at the 1985 Brit Awards. Radar began recording their album at the famous ‘Trident Studios’ on Wardour Street, London early 1985. In late December 1985 Radar left these shores to reside in the Isle Of Man at ‘The Old Schoolhouse’ in Port Erin, which they converted into a residential recording studio and continued to finish the album. In fact most of the initial London recordings were scrapped and the album was re-started from scratch. Gary continued producing while using David West as his right hand man while Rod Jordan worked on writing for the album and made a few guest appearances on some of Gary’s productions. The band was happy to hold back the release of the Radar album and use the success of Gary’s production works with various bands to promote an upcoming release. In retrospect this had a negative effect on Radar, the momentum was lost and the Radar album was never released. Release Date: 19 February 2021 Track Listing: 1. A Trick Of The Light   4:29  2. Goodbye Mr. President  4:34        3. Laena 3:14         4. Going Overboard  4:06         5. Love Wars  3:47  6. The Calling Time  2:49  7. Lost In The City 3:56   8. Someone’s Crying 6:00   9.
