Legendary rock superstars America burst onto the rock music scene in the early 1970s with their much-revered classic debut America featuring "A Horse With No Name" which forever changed the fortunes of this very popular rock trio.

Before the album was released in the United States, imports of the original 1971 U.K. version would receive early airplay with the song "Sandman" on many rock stations here. Warner wanted to add another song to the album, they were looking for a big Top 40 hit and they went with a overseas track "A Horse With No Name" that appeared initially on a rare EP, and as predicted they scored with a No. 1 top charting pop and album rock single.

The album was re-released here in early 1972 with "A Horse With No Name" and became one of the biggest debut album releases in recording history by Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek.

Their stunning masterpiece was filled with a generous helping of their most popular hit singles and album tracks like the No. 1 " A Horse With No Name," the powerful smash hit ballad "I Need You," and rock staples such as "Riverside" "Sandman" "Three Roses" and "Never Found The Time."
