Mary, have you seen better days?

"If you get this title (a lyric from "Only In Your Heart"), you'll love this CD. The section of the song where they repeatedly chant these lyrics in a multitracked crescendo will send chills down your spine.

Those of us who were 70s children who recall hearing a lot of this stuff on AM radio stations on our way to school in the mornings will cherish this. Even if you weren't there at the time, it's still pretty mellow music that goes down good.

Songs such as "A Horse With No Name," "Only In Your heart", "Daisy Jane" (the similarities between this and Janet Jackson's "Let's Wait Awhile" a decade later was said to have provoked an out of court settlement), and "Sister Golden Hair" are laid backed, acoustic-guitar and vocal harmony based easy-listening folk-rockers that's ideal music for long drives on sunny days or relaxing after work as the sun goes down. One reviewer has compared this to CSNY. I never thought about this, but it's true, minus the politics.

"You can't disregard your friends/"Cause life gets so hard when you reach the end" (From "Only in Your Heart").

In either case, simply put it's just good music. Enjoy."

"Being a child of the 80's the 70's always seemed bland and stuffy. One day I lugged my guitar to work and a co-worker knocked out some beautiful chords and warm lyrics. I was impressed and asked who the artist was and the name of the song. He said "Lonely People", by America. So it was not long before I got ahold of a copy, and went with this greatest hits. There's alot here and a good entry into not just "America" but into that 70's groove."
