America - Here & Now


I just wanted to remind you all to pick up the new America album, Here & Now, that I worked on with your beloved Adam. It's pretty much the best America album in years.

I still want to get this album as well. I have a number of America's albums from the 70s.

Here is a bit of useless trivia for everyone. America's greatest hits album from 1975 was called "History". Here is the cover:



I was watching a bio on tv last night of the late Phil Hartman (of Saturday Night Live, Newsradio, etc) and it turns out that he did the artwork for the cover.

I bought the America album yesterday.

Very good, pretty laid back in usual America style. :thumbs:

Adam wrote one song and co-wrote another.

Another interesting person to co-write a song was Bill ("danger Will Robinson") Mumy. :rock:

It was a good value buy, you also get a bonus live CD with 12 of their best known tracks on it.

I've been meaning to get it for awhile, 'cause I'm one of those crazy people who will pay money for anything with Adam Schlesinger's name on it. :D

I have played the album a fair bit since I bought it and have to say I really like it too.

It is just a really laid back album of beautiful tunes, very easy on the ear. Of course the superb production helps as well. :bigsmile:

Favourites (off the top of my head) - Chasing The Rainbow, Always Love, One Chance, Love and Leaving, Look At Me Now, Glass King.

I have loved America for years and might invest in a few more of their back catalogue albums that I don't have as well.

Here is a nice little article about America, talking about the Here & Now album quite a bit:
