"Mention Heyoka to any self respecting rock music head in Texas and theyll tell you about this legendary band, the greatest unsigned band ever to originate from that state. Heyoka captured the imagination of fans with a back story fueled by mystical Native American folklore and peyote dreams. They opened for Rush at Randys Rodeo, then managed to get plum slots opening for Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, Be-Bop Deluxe, Golden Earring, Budgie, Trapeze and Rick Derringer. The music video for "Video Madness" made it onto MTV—but was then unceremoniously banned. "Heyoka, like Ultra in San Antonio... really should have made it but didnt," concert promoter Jack Orbin says. "I think they were ahead of their time musically. They were progressive metal, and thats what exploded out of San Antonio. They were innovators." The music is reminiscent of Jethro Tull and Kansas, but retaining a unique quality all its own, evoking Native American imagery under the mystical guide of Black Elk. Tracks all from masters, recorded between the years 1977 and 1986, all previously unissued. High quality vinyl version 2-LP set comes with 12x24 poster." - Shroomangel.
