America is a pop/rock band based out of California who had its greatest success in The Seventies
. They have never been critical favorites, but they had a handful of hits which are fondly remembered by fans. The band's vintage lineup consisted of Gerry Beckley, Dan Peek, and Dewey Bunnell. Peek left the group in 1977, but Beckley and Bunnell continue to tour and record as America to this day.
Songs recorded by America include "Ventura Highway," "A Horse with No Name," "Sister Golden Hair," and "Muskrat Love." That last song makes them worth remembering; after all, that song kills killer tomatoes.
"A Horse with No Name" and "Sister Golden Hair" are more pleasant to humans.George Martin
produced three of this band's albums.
