Biografia:
A Head East passou por várias formações e abordagens musicais antes de consolidar-se, em St. Louis, no início dos anos 70, como um quinteto de hard rock, composto por John Schlitt (vocal), Mike Somerville (guitarra), Roger Boyd (teclados), Dan Birney (baixo) e Steve Huston (bateria), todos ex-alunos da Universidade de Illinois. A banda gravou seu primeiro disco, "Flat As A Pancake", de forma independente e lançou-o pela sua própria gravadora, Pyramid Records, no início de 1975.
8Quando a faixa "Never Been Any Reason" começou a atrair a atenção das rádios, a A&M Records assinou com a banda e relançou "Flat As A Pancake" em junho de 1975. Os singles "Never Been Any Reason" e "Love Me Tonight" fizeram sucesso e o álbum ficou seis meses nas paradas, conquistando, finalmente,  o disco de ouro. "Get Yourself Up" (abril de 1976) e "Gettin 'Lucky" (março de 1977) foram menos bem-sucedidos, mas "Head East" (fevereiro de 1978), impulsionado pela entrada do single "Since You Been Gone" nas paradas, alcançou um posto intermediário no Top 100.
2O duplo LP "Head East Live!" (janeiro de 1979) também chegou ao Top 100, assim como aconteceu com "A Different Kind Of Crazy" (outubro de 1979), e a banda tocou na trilha sonora do filme cômico J-Men Forever! (1979), mas, no final do ano, Schlitt, Birney e Somerville deixaram o grupo. Boyd e Huston recrutaram Mark Boatman, Tony Gross e Dan Odum para a gravação de "U.S. 1" (outubro de 1980), último álbum da Head East a alcançar as paradas e o derradeiro disco da banda lançado pela A&M; mas o sucesso foi relativo.
7Após o apogeu comercial, Boyd continuou realizando turnês com a banda e gravando para pequenos selos. A Head East foi introduzida no Hall Of Fame da Iowa Rock & Roll Music Association em 2011.(William Ruhlmann, AllMusic; tradução livre do inglês).
