About this copy: This copy of America is a 1976 Japanese pressing of an album that was originally released in 1971.

The cover is M-, with a couple of faint corner dents.  The obi and insert are M-.

The disc is M- and looks like it has only been played a couple of times.

A beautiful 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.
