    New AMERICA recalls classic AMERICA of the early 70's HERE&NOW!

    Disc one (Oustanding) is all new material that is outstanding writing and playing in classic AMERICA style. AMERICA originals One Chance, Love & Leaving, Ride On, This Time bonus track Here & Now as well as Golden, Always Love and Work To Do are top notch and will remind you of classics like To Each His Own, Only in Your Heart, Baby It's Up to You, Sister Golden Hair, Ventura Highway, I Need You and All My Life. AMERICA's 20+ albums have produced several quality ones since Dan Peek (Lonely People, Don't Cross the River, Woman Tonight) left the group. This CD of new material is AMERICA with a energized sound and swagger brought to life by producers Adam Schlesinger and James Iha. Thanks for bringing back that classic AMERICA sound we grew up listening to while making new music with that's fresh and relevant. Great AMERICAn music - easy listening music to relax and rejuvenate your soul in this crazy world we live in. The second disc (okay, but not great) is AMERICA's greatest hits recorded live at the XM Theater last fall and is lacking the studio excellence we are accustom to hearing over the last 30+ years. Gerry and Dewey - thanks for continuing to make great music and SONY's Burgundy Records for bringing AMERCIA back to life and the autographed CD jacket.

    America never really left the music scene, having toured nonstop for over 30 years. But when it came to fresh music, the group's efforts since about 1980 or so, were pretty hit-and-miss, uneven affairs. A few good songs here and there, but nothing to make the public really take notice. But "Here and Now" is amazing. It's classic "America" with some fabulous production behind it. "Ride On" gives you chills (sha-la-la-la-la...). And "Chasing Rainbows" and "Golden" remind us all what we've been missing. Is it for the "hardcore" rocker? No...and it never was. But America has nothing to apologize for. With "Here and Now", however, it does have plenty of reasons to be proud.
