America - America Grammy Winner! RIAA Certified Gold! Click here to see this CD at!

By Steve Gdula

Drawing upon the softer side of the hippie folk scene with a more refined sound, America garnered a string of hits for themselves in the '70s. With a rich, acoustic base and lush, high tenor harmonies, songs like "Sandman" were instantly successful. The band's breakthrough single was the slightly country-tinged "Horse with No Name," (which hit number one) that owed a debt to the craftsmanship of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. America displayed the band's sensitivities with "Clarice" and "I Need You," the latter charting at number nine. While the band made a name for itself on the strength of "Horse" alone, the rest of the record deserves attention, too. While "Riverside" and "Children Here" never reached the status of later hits like "Sister Goldenhair" or "Lonely People," they still command respect.

"I've been a big America fan since day 1. All of us who are big fans are lucky enough to see them still performing today. They don't just play the oldies, but they have come out with new material over the years which is just as good as the commerical stuff. I've seen them about 30 times, and they are the nicest guys around. After showsthey will take pictures, give autographs, and talk to you like a real person. Their music is just as good today as it was back in 1972."

--Mark-E. Brunswick, N.J.

"Special album to me - it was the gift my dad gave my mom (along with some roses) in the hospital when I was born on March 13, 1972!"
