Head East


LV KIX

Recommended Posts

I know there are a few here at HH who like the band Head East. I saw them live once, maybe 10 or 12 years ago, and they were really good. I have yet to add a Head East CD to my collection. I'm thinking it is about time I do so.

 

Where should I start. Are all releases fairly consistant or are some weaker then others...?

 

Help me out... :cartman:

 

Thanks in advance... ~Dave~

I only have 'Choice Of Weapons' but it is an excellent disc, and one that is considered their most AOR. Nick is the boy to see about more recommendations

That's the only one I have as well and really like it.

wow, Nick didnt read this yet!!! hehehehe Next to Nick I may be the next great HEast fans, get anything with John Schlitt on it, the 80's stuff was not him and terrible for me, John went to the band Petra in the 80's and made them a hugh suceess.

Not all HEast albums are on cd, only Flat as a Pancake, the two for one Self titled/Gettin Lucky and a few comps are available

My fav album is Get Yourself Up and A Different Kind of Crazy, and the love album!!!

Not sure about my fave Head East, I'm with Paul (Swriter) on this though...after John Schlitt left (along with Mike Somerville -gtr and Dan Birney - Bass) the band wasn't the same .... except for the excellent Choice of Weapons (available on CD) which was a bit of a Renaissance quality wise.

 

My fave albums ... dunno I like them all up to, and including A Different Kind of Crazy (which incidentally was given an official CD release in Europe) but it's hard to come by these days...no I ain't selling mine!).

 

I absolutely love the Head East Live album .... which was never given a full release on CD (although there are a few boots about which stupidly go for daft prices!) ...only an edited version as Live on Stage which just isn't the same. The band play up a storm on it and Mike Somerfield's guitar is awesome!

I dunno..I really can't pick a favourite.

 

If anyone sees the Head East Live 2008 CD let me know...it's only given away at shows so I've no chance of grabbing a copy over here in the UK.

 

http://www.head-east.com/ - Here's a link to their site which has a good discography amongst other things

Hi Paul, it was an official release on Dark Heart records an indie - both as vinyl and CD ... band related ?

 

Yeah I burned my vinyl version of Live to CD some time back...would love a legit release though.

I have the 3 mentioned (Flat as a Pancake, A different Kind of Crazy & Choice of Weapons) and they are all great. Try to get all of them, if possible. But as Nick already mentioned, the "Crazy" one is probably not going to be an easy one to find.

 

Good luck ! :drink:

If they have it at DRF I'll grab it for you. :headbanger:

And if I forget you can blame Pete, Chad or Rick for making me drink so much. :lol:

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
