The world discovered America in 1972, when a nameless horse began its gallop across the international airwaves. If this sounds like some sort of fairy tale, it seemed like one for the young musicians who harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of this song. "A Horse With No Name" made the band called America famous in the United States, Europe, and beyond, leading the way for an impressive string of hits to follow. Slightly more than a year after launching their group, Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek were riding high, thanks to a sound that mixed rock, pop, and folk elements to instantly appealing effect.
America's albums--six of them certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, reaching the four-million sales mark--displayed a fuller range of the trio's talents than did their singles. From effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys and soul-bearing ballads, their reach was wide and ambitious.
Live at Wildwood Springs includes all of America's greatest hits, including "A Horse With No Name", "Sister Golden Hair", "Ventura Highway" just to name a few. The special concert is all-acoustic and one of a kind.
