Head East - Gettin' Lucky, a regional band (700th post)

Head East - Gettin' Lucky.   Head East is in a unique category of bands.   A list that a band does not want to be on.  It is the list called "There First Album was their Best Album."  Flat as a Pancake was Head East's first, and it's a classic.  I bet you can think of a few other bands to add to this list.  I will start with the Big Three:  Boston, The Cars, and Molly Hatchet.  And more...?  Please use Comment function.   Now back to this record - called Gettin' Lucky, it was released in 1977 on A&M Records.  Along with Flat as a Pancake and Head East Live!, it is one of their most renowned releases.  The album peaked at #136 on Billboard's Pop Chart.  This album was re-released together with Head East on CD as a double-album.


  1. How about The Kings first albun (name?) that had "The Beat Goes On/Switchin' to Glide"?

  2. Definitely. They are on 2 lists. First was Best, and One Hit Wonders.
