Head East

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

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!!!

I guess I would start with Flat as a Pancake which is available with the big hit, Never been any reason, which I am sure we all heard!!!

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.

I think the best Head East release is the s/t or (street sign album).. I like that one all the way through.. but "Never been any reason" from the flat as a pancake release and "If you knew me better" from the Different kind of crazy release are my fave songs.

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:
