Historic Recording Studio Documentary Now on YouTube

The long awaited and recently completed Golden Voice Recording Company Documentary is now available for viewing on YouTube. The 3 hour documentary is broken in to 18 parts on YouTube so that viewers can watch the lengthy documentary a few parts at a time. Parts 8 and 9 which can be viewed at the addresses linked below talk about Head East and feature interviews with former Head East guitarist Michael Somerville and Head East founding member and keyboardist Roger Boyd.

As many of you know, Head East recorded their first two studio albums at Golden Voice Recording Studio in South Pekin, Illinois. Sadly, the facility was gutted by fire in 1978 and never re-opened. Many musicians passed through its doors over the years including Dan Fogelberg, Jonathan Cain (born Jonathan Leonard Friga), who recorded as Johnny Lee years before becoming a member of The Babys and Journey, and the members of Head East, Heartsfield, Styx, and REO Speedwagon to name just a few.

Knock-Off Copies of Head East 50th Anniversary Shirts

It has come to our attention that replicas of the Head East 50th Anniverary T-shirts are being sold online by websites that have not been authorized to sell our copyrighted designs. Please be advised that Official Head East T-Shirts are only currently sold at Head East concerts. For a short period in February 2019 we contracted with Silkworm, Inc. to have our 50th Annniversary shirts sold online through their website. Silkworm Inc. is the only business who we have authorized to sell our shirts. Since March of 2019, our Head East shirts have only been available for sale at live shows. We have gone to great lengths to post this fact on our Official Facebook Page and Official Website. If you come across any other websites who are producing and selling new Head East 50th Anniversary T-Shirts (other than Silkworm, Inc) please do not purchase from these sites. Fans who have purchased these unauthorized re-creations of our copyrighted design have been very displeased with the quality of the shirts and the unauthorized recreated design.

As we have stated before many times, if Head East sells any of their merchandise online in the future we will make an announcement ahead of time on our Official Website and social media sites. If you find a site that you think is procuding and selling unauthorized versions of our shirts, please contact us using the online form on the Contact Page of this website.
