Head West is a music album released in 1970 by the American band Head West, who were based in Paris, France. The band are best known today for their vocalist / guitarist Bob Welch, who went on to join Fleetwood Mac in 1971. Since 1973, by which time Welch had become more well-known, the album was repackaged as more of a solo album, credited to Bob Welch with Head West. Singles were also released but with little success.[1]

After Head West had split up, organist Bobby Hunt toured with Fleetwood Mac as a back up keyboard player for Christine McVie in 1974.[2][3] After Welch had left Fleetwood Mac, he and Hunt recorded demos for Warner Bros. which were then developed into the Paris power trio project.[2]
