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.
