Like "Flat As A Pancake", Head East's sophomore effort "Get Yourself Up" was recorded at Golden Voice Recording Studios in South Pekin, Illinois. Other Illinois based acts including Dan Fogelberg, Styx, Starcastle, and REO Speedwagon recorded albums or demos there or simply booked the reasonably priced studio as a preferred location to work on new material. Though the album produced no hit singles, it remains a favorite of many Head East fans. It has something for everyone from upbeat songs like "Monkey Shine" and "Trouble", to epic anthems like "The Victim", and the softer acoustic sound of "Sailor". The album sleeve for this release has the song lyrics printed on one side and a photo montage of the band members on the other side.
