3 - 1 = 2

The songs are all beauties but since Dan Peek is absent from the lineup is not the same. For example: listen to Hollywood when the 3 were together and listen to this one. It is not even the fact that this is not a Dan Peek song but when the 3 played together it just sounded so much better. Surely the 2 carried the franchise "America" and kept singing their songs but with Dan out of the equation it no longer sounds the same. Okey, smoke a fatty and listen to the album Holiday and then listen to any (I don't care which) of their later albums when 3 - 1 became 2 and compare! 3 was better than 2!

GREAT LIVE VERSIONS!!!!!

I just love the live version of Horse With No Name. Amber Cascades is also excellent. I had this album in high school and have never seen it since, Thanks for bringing it to itunes

Some bands meant to be enjoyed better, live.

It seems that America is one of those bands whose music is meant to be enjoyed better live. I occasionally sample the entire discography of a band that's only known to certain generations (that would be my generation) by it's Greatest Hits albums. America: Live (and their live 1979 Central Park concert film) are stellar showcases of their energy and artistry more so than their recorded work. Some singles on the original albums seem like "ideas" of songs instead of fully realized productions. But to hear those same songs performed with full orchestra and reinterpreted is like listening to them living and breathing the way they were intended .
