Head East

Head East went through several lineups and musical approaches before consolidating in St. Louis in the early '70s as a hard rock quintet consisting of John Schlitt (vocals), Mike Somerville (guitar), Roger Boyd (keyboards), Dan Birney (bass), and Steve Huston (drums), all alumni of the University of Illinois. They recorded their debut album, Flat as a Pancake, independently and released it on their own Pyramid Records label in early 1975. When the track "Never Been Any Reason" began to attract radio attention, A&M Records signed the band and re-released Flat as a Pancake in June 1975. The singles "Never Been Any Reason" and "Love Me Tonight" became minor pop chart entries, and the album spent six months on the charts, eventually going gold. Get Yourself Up (April 1976) and Gettin' Lucky (March, 1977) were less successful, but Head East (February, 1978), spurred by the minor singles chart entry "Since You Been Gone," reached the upper half of the Top 100. The double-LP Head East Live! (January, 1979) also peaked in the Top 100, as did A Different Kind of Crazy (October, 1979), and the band performed on the soundtrack to the comic anthology film J-Men Forever! (1979), but at the end of the year, Birney and Somerville left the group while Schlitt joined the Christian rock group Petra. Boyd and Huston recruited Mark Boatman, Tony Gross, and Dan Odum to record U.S. 1 (October 1980), Head East's last album to reach the charts and last newly recorded release on A&M; it was a minor chart entry. After its commercial heyday, Boyd led the band in continued touring and recording for small labels. The band was inducted into the Iowa Rock & Roll Music Association's Hall of Fame in 2011. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Takes me back to my college days at SMS. Saw them in concert when they were a back up group for Ted Nugent. Great band and songs!!!!!
Head East is a GREAT live band, but in the studio you can feel the tension in their music. I still TURN IT UP when Head East is on the radio and my wife just purchased a "Live" CD for me. It is a compilation from Head East Live, and rocks. Enjoy Head East LIVE
Flat As a Pancake was one of the most popular albums in the mid 70s. Coming from St. Louis I had the pleasure of seeing them perform... what a show indeed. Thanks for rocking it Head East!
It's difficult to Head East when you live in key west, but I'm sure glad that I did. Thank You, HEAD EAST!
It's been many year's since HEAD East has toured. A true must see live band. What great show's! What great memories!!!
I like major VAMPING! CLASSIC ROCK AND HARD ROCK!!!

Head East has some of the best engineered songs recorded. Clean clear and precise sounds. Still sounds great today...30 years later.

Rock out!!my favorite travel song !!!!!!!!!!!
I always loved this group as a club band back in Nebraska in the late 70's. Great sound within the confines of medium to large sized Midwestern bars, along side the likes of Kansas, STYX and REO before they became arena supergroups.
head east live great album
leesa2liza3
love their songs!!
Takes me back to my college days when Head East had a strong following at Southern Illinois -- Go Dawgs! Prime example of good solid performance and quality material.
