ALBUM

THE Angels - Beyond Salvation

The ninth studio album from ARIA Hall Of Fame inductees The Angels became the band’s only #1 on the Albums Chart when it spent two weeks at the top of the chart in June 1990. Beyond Salvation debuted at #2, spending two weeks in that position before hitting #1 in the album’s third week on the chart. It featured the singles ‘Let The Night Roll On’ (#17 Feb. ’90), ‘Dogs Are Talking’ (#11 May ’90) and ‘Back Street Pick Up’ (#23 Aug. ’90).

Beyond Salvation spent 16 weeks in the top ten and 26 weeks in the top 50. It was #23 on the 1990 ARIA End Of Year Albums Chart and was accredited Platinum.

The Angels’ last appearance in the ARIA top 50 came following the passing of front man Doc Neeson in June 2014, with two albums hitting the chart: 40 Years Of Rock - Vol 1: 40 Greatest Studio Hits (#20 Jun. ’14) and Greatest Hits (#26 Jun. ’14). They were inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1998.

American band Heart snared their only Australian #1 when ‘All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)’ spent four straight weeks at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart in mid-1990. Coming from Heart’s tenth studio album, Brigade (#11 Jun. ’90), the single debuted at #36 in April before steadily ascending the chart in the following weeks to hit #1 in its sixth week in the top 50.

‘All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)’ received a Platinum accreditation and hit #5 in the 1990 ARIA End Of Year Singles Chart. The single spent 11 weeks in the top ten and 19 weeks in the top 50.

Heart last appeared on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Will You Be There (In The Morning)’ (#24 Mar. ’94).
