Hailing from Illinois, Head East were one of a number of hard rock bands that enjoyed great success in the Midwest of America whilst barely registering a blip on the East and West coasts. During the 1970s however, it wasn't uncommon to whisper their name in the same hallowed company as heavy hitters such as Kansas, Styx, Cheap Trick and REO Speedwagon. Indeed, being big in the Midwest meant you didn't really need to secure the approval of hipster critics or rack up a string of hit singles. So long as you could sell out sports halls and coliseums that was all the acclaim needed. It's a tribute to the band that their label, A&M records, recognised their rabid fan following in the heartland, and decreed that they should be anointed with the golden prize of a double live album. All the rage at the time, double live records helped to boost the careers of acts teetering on the edge of greatness and placated the insatiable appetite of devoted fans for a live document of their stage show. 'Head East Live!', originally released in 1979, featured tracks taken from their four previous studio albums and breathed new life into their sound, whilst reminding us of their uncompromising approach to performance. Check out the Deep purple influenced 'Jefftown Creek', the startling rendition of 'Never Been Any Reason' and the epic 'Elijah'. Simply an incredible record."
