Profile In the early 80’s Nino De Angelo had already released a couple of successful Pop albums. With the release of De Angelo in 1991 however he not only dropped his first name and hired the “creme de la creme” of German sessionists like Curt Cress, Peter Weihe (Far Corporation) and Ken Taylor (Jojo, Valet Parking). No, he also went for a pure AOR direction musically. Those who are familiar with his 80’s Pop stuff will be very surprised to hear that songs like “La Luna” or “Wildes Herz” are total AOR with strong guitars, fluffy keyboards and an ultra precise rhythm section. To be totally honest, a few tracks almost sound like a German version of Jeffrey Ross or Dan Lucas. Among the producers we find Lorenz Westphal who was responsible for the fantastic Channel 5 releases. Unfortunately his new rock oriented approach wasn’t that succesful with his old fans so after another AORish album in 1993 he went quickly back to his earlier Pop direction thus making this off-track effort quite hard to track down.
