Head East recorded their first two studio albums (Flat As A Pancake and Get Yourself Up) in their home state at Golden Voice Recording Studios in South Pekin, Illinois. Golden Voice Recording Company, which was started by Mary Ann Milam and her husband Jerry in the early 60s, will be the subject of a documentary expected to be completed later this year.
