Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of America, the self-titled debut LP by America, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of America is a 1980 pressing on the Warner Brothers label of an album that was originally released in 1971.

The cover is M-.   The obi is M-.  The insert is M-.

The disc is VG+ with a light inaudible mark through the last track on side one and a light inaudible scratch through three tracks on side two.  There are a few spindle marks on the labels; it’s a clean disc that has had relatively little play.

A nice copy of a terrific (and well-recorded) LP.

Background: Released in 1971, America was the first album by the band of the same name.  The album originally did not include “A Horse With No Name” but the track was added after the song became a hit when released as a single.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. album charts. gave America a 4 star review:

America’s debut album is a folk-pop classic, a stellar collection of memorable songs that would prove influential on such acts as the Eagles and Dan Fogelberg. Crosby, Stills & Nash are the group’s obvious stylistic touchstone here, especially in the vocal harmonies used (compare the thick chordal singing of “Sandman” and “Children” to CS&N’s “You Don’t Have to Cry” and “Guinevere”) and the prominent use of active strummed acoustic guitar arrangements (contrast “Riverside” to CS&N’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”). …In spite of its flaws, this platter is very highly recommended.
