Angelo & Eighteen –Midnight Flight


Angelo & Eighteen –Midnight Flight/ Flight 2 –RAK 137 (1972 UK)

Originally sought after for the B side as it was one of those “secret” DJ plays around 5-6 years ago, the A side has been unjustly totally overlooked. Midnight Flight is a cracking little number: All pop with style featuring a strong chorus, nifty guitar and class singing. The track then ends with hints of what will appear on its B side. The most striking thing about Flight 2 is that it is totally incongruous with 1972 and It somehow ends up sounding like mid 90s Prodigy! Again I have no info on Angelo & Eighteen. I have heard a rumour that there may be some Canadian connection, but this is yet to be confirmed...
Note: Flight 2 has recently been comped by Bob Stanley on an Ace CD http://www.acerecords.co.uk/content.php?page_id=59&release=8358

So it looks they actually were also the famous French Revolution on Decca UK. Angelo Finaldi is on MySpace http://www.myspace.com/angelofinaldi2
and it says he worked with Nanette Workman, who I think did some recordings in England too...

Angelo Finaldi and Richard Tate (both of La Révolution Française) were in Ibiza around this time. Angelo auditionned for Led Zep, as a second guitarist maybe for their live sets. That's how he met Most.
