    'Ventura Highway' America 1972

    We follow up with Americas greatest mellow rock band of the early 1970's: America! These 3 guys were cool.

    Those were great days. I remember it vaguely through the smoke and haze!

    Great! Now that I heard that I've been sucked in to listening to "Sandman", "Tin Man", and "Sister Golden Hair". America was a bit before my time. My older sisters though were the right age for that music. They'd try to get their brothers to listen to it. Monty Python fart jokes were what we could understand. Even then the true genius of Monty Python humor didn't set in until years later. Appreciation of America music took a bit longer.

    That was a long time ago. Thanks for bringing back some memories, JD.

    "Twinkle, twinkle, little star", just for the hell of it.

    My pleasure! Here is Sister Golden Hair from 1975. The guys were in great form here on the Midnight Special!

    Sister Golden Hair has always been one of my favorites. My blonde daughter used to use it as her Karaoke theme song....

    My 3 brunette daughters loved it too! We'll finish up with Americas first #1 hit. A Horse with No Name from 1972. Written by Dewey Brunell.
