Blue Angel is the name of the band that Cyndi Lauper fronted during 1979/80, before she made it as a solo artist.

They were briefly popular on the New York club scene, playing a kind of retro-rockabilly that was then hip (see X, some early The B-52’s and The Cramps), but was far more accessible and romantic than many practitioners of the period.

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.

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.
