Angel - The Winter Song


I ran across this song from the mid 70's tonight and I still love it.  Angel was discovered by Gene Simmons performing in a bar in Washington, D.C. and had them sign with KISS's record label.  Along the the super long and beautiful (in a feminine sort of look) hair, they wore all white outfits in contrast to KISS's black garb. Be sure to put on your head sets or ear buds. The music is beautiful.



Told Ya!

That really is a beautiful song, C. But --- I don't remember ever hearing it before. I was a child of the seventies - graduated hs in 78...where was I, where was this group then? Hmmm..

Of course, I was a bit of a country chick back then, hanging with the drugstore cowboys and their pickup trucks in Phoenix. Could be why. I was jamming to George Jones and the Waylon and Willie back then...

Thanks for sharing. :)

This was a really good song. It was my first time hearing it too. Now I know the origins of the coined term "Hair Bands". Thanks for sharing xo

I don't remember ever having heard them before. They definitely are the opposite of KISS. I have hair envy.

Was I the only one that was reminded of Wayne's World when I watched this video?

Who would'ave thought you'd enjoy those "long haired" people! You continue to amaze me.

God do I love me some 70's Glitter Rock hair.

Not on the men I date - just in general. To look at. Especially when it's on David Bowie circa Ziggy Stardust.

I want to run my fingers through it all day long...in a nonsexual way. Because no matter how cool it is - it's also just a little bit odd.

I actually enjoyed that. I sort of missed the 70's and not for the reason you are thinking. LOL

New to me, and you're right. It's very pretty.

They were a smaller, less know group who were pretty well know around the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area back in the 60's. They were playing clubs while still in high school, too. The thing is, like all of us from that era, they are in their 60's now and the bass player died a few years ago from liver cancer. The 'band' still performs, but the originals are retired.
