ARC ANGEL - Arc Angel [Bad Reputation 40th Anniversary remaster +3] (2023) HQ - full

Excellent reissue label Bad Reputation has just released 1983’s “Arc Angel“, the self-titled album from Jeff Cannata band/project ARC ANGEL considered among the best American AOR/pomp rock albums of all time. Ready for its 40th Anniversary, this amazing record has received a deserved fully remastered audio, including three bonus tracks and a complete booklet.
Some time ago Jeff Cannata remastered the album by himself (released through his own record label), however in limited quantities and now impossible to find. This Bad Reputation reissue sound quality is top notch.

Simply put, Arc Angel, founded together by vocalist Jeff Cannata and keyboard player Michael Soldan, created in 1983 this masterpiece regarded as one of the greatest AOR albums of all time. Session bass on the album came from future Bon Jovi man Hugh McDonald, drums by Chuck Burgi (Rainbow, Balance), synths by Jeff Bova (David Lee Roth, Meat Loaf), while James Christian (House of Lords) sung backing vocals on almost all tracks.
Arc Angel was dismissed by stupid U.S. critics as a Boston / Kansas clone, but became a huge hit album in Europe, and today is considered a timeless classic.

You do not need more details, “Arc Angel” is a MUST HAVE, a MANDATORY album into your ’80s AOR collection.
