The mellow soft rock singer/songwriter sounds of the early to mid 1970s arguably found its apex with the folk rock band America, who released hit after hit during that time. A great collection of all those songs, many which hit top ten or even number one on the charts, are complied on the album America’s Greatest Hits , which is on sale right now in MP3 format for only $5.00 on Amazon.
This record might embody the entire “feelgood” vibes of that time, full of many songs that are guilty pleasures and some that are bona fide pop classics: “A Horse With No Name,” the-rolling-down-the-highway “Ventura Highway,” the ballad “I Need You,” the saccharine strains of “Muskrat Love,” the ex-Beatles producer George Martin-helmed bass-heavy “Tin Man,” and the memorable smash “Sister Golden Hair” among others. A great collection for when it’s time to chill, lay back in the hammock, and take a break from musical headbanging and just letting the noggin sway softly and subtly in the breeze.
