Their only album, the self-titled Blue Angel, was released in 1980 to critical acclaim and moderate sales. It featured a sparse punk rock and New Wave-styled cover in primary red and floating band member photos. Like much of Lauper’s later solo career, the sales for the album was more successful overseas than in America, but even so the only track to achieve high chart status was “I’m Gonna Be Strong”, which reached #37 in the Netherlands. Another song from the album, “Maybe He’ll Know”, was rerecorded by Lauper on her second solo album, True Colors, in 1986.
In 1984, after Lauper’s subsequent success, the record was re-released, this time with a yellow cover, and finally in an exclusive 5,000 copy limited compact disc pressing in 2005 from Hip-O Select Records. The band reformed without Lauper in 1987 under the name “Boppin’ the Blues”. Lauper joined them on stage for a one-time performance. The band has since disbanded completely.
Blue Angel is also a Japanese Rockabilly band that utilizes male and female vocals
