Beau Coup is condemned to forever remain a cult classic; it is one of the many exciting bands (and solo artists) who will always be fondly remembered within the AOR and pomprock minded community, but who outside this sphere have never received the recognition they so richly deserved. This Ohio based band released a limited edition (1000 copies) 6 track EP back in 1984, which to mere mortals is damn near impossible to obtain these days, followed three years later by this "full length" 9 track album.
Beau Coup was formed around the enigmatic personality of keyboarder Dennis Lewin, formerly of Jonah Koslen & the Heroes. Together with the vocal talents of brothers Frank and Tommy Amato (whose voices are one of a kind and instantly recognizable) he strongly determines the band's sound, which is more modern than that of their debut, though not overtly hi-tech. They play a highly addictive musical synthesis of fellow AOR greats Cannata, The Innocent and near-namesake Beau Geste, resulting in extremely catchy songs infused with pompous keyboards, beautiful piano parts and sing-along choruses with some of the best vocal harmonies i have ever heard. The bouncy title track starts things off on the right foot, but especially the unforgettable "Somewhere out in the night", "Sweet Rachel" (great chorus !), the moody, midtempo "Uptown L.A." and irresistable rocker "Hold on me" are slices of sheer perfect AOR, with a (slight) poprock feel reminiscent of bands like The Arrows, Pseudo Echo and Glass Tiger. The music is vivacious and uplifting, this is a feelgood album with a crisp production that sparkles and fizzes like a sodapop commercial.

I remember hearing Beau Coup's songs played on the radio back in high school. Buying this CD brought me back to those days. It may sound dated by today's standards, but at the time it was produced, it was spot on! Beau Coup was a great Cleveland band, and I wish there was more of their music out there to buy...

A teacher of mine rewarded us with records for good work done. I got Beau Coup and loved it. No one else knew anything about them. Thus began my descent into underappreciated pop. I was hooked. Now I listen to Prefab Sprout and Miracle Legion. Of things to get hooked on, this album's not bad.

This is a good rock and roll band out of the Cleveland area.
I know they released another song sometime in 1989, but I'm not sure what it was "I'll Never Stop Loving You" maybee?? Please let me know
