In September , during a rare America trip to the UK, Melody Maker took a look at this state of affairs: "We played this hall four years ago with, er It really is.
There was one concert at the Royal Festival Hall two years ago, but no tour, a state of affairs that must surely be reflected in the group's disappointing U. Of the three, who left England three years ago, only Beckley retains his ties closely. The other two have settled in California. Beckley has a house in Sussex, a cottage that he lives in for slightly more than a month each year, partly for tax reasons, and partly because he simply hasn't the time any more.
He does look on England as home, though, and sincerely wishes there could be more U. Predictably, it's a collection of singles, all of which were top twenty numbers in the States.
Martin will, in fact, re-mix the early tracks that he wasn't involved with at the time. Hideaway featured a formula similar to Holiday and Hearts : a mixture of acoustic and electric offerings with varying levels of orchestration, depending on the song.
Perhaps one of the standout album cuts was Gerry's "Watership Down", based on the Richard Adams novel of the same name, which featured outstanding arrangements and harmonizing. On "Lovely Night," America experimented with a "reggae extrapolation," as a tour program described it.
The fabulous two-part "Hideaway" instrumental featured some of George Martin's finest orchestration on any America album. As Dewey explained: It's harder for me to write a good song about something that's just a good, groovy time; there's always a "minor," as in minor chord, that I like to write about.
It's sure hard for me to write about "bounced the baby on my knee" or "these fun times," you know. That isn't enough to get me to write. I always like to throw in something, get something extra; the words, the images, the colors, like purple or whatever, that have that little tinge of possible terror -- I call it menacing, that's the word.
A little menacing. Minor keys, minor choruses, as in "Sandman": "I understand you've been running from the man. He explained something about how that song came about: "Are You There" on the Harbor album was one of my real strong songs.
That's kind of a good example because the song came straight out of the gut. We were on tour, and it was half way through the tour, and through physical abuse, basically, and some natural illnesses, we had to cancel. Daniel was one of the "illees," Gerry was sick too, and I felt this sort of "coitus interruptus" of the tour. You know, you just start rolling and WHAM! So I came home and wrote the song -- it was like: "The day we lost our voice with little Joyce [choice], I can't explain, an act of agony.
Dan looked back at the failure of that single to catch on: That was probably one of the biggest disappointments of my time in America. I believed so strongly in that song It was really a personal expression and a heartfelt song, and one that was really important to me.
And on top of that I just thought it was a darn good song. It was released from the Harbor album , which unfortunately didn't do as well as albums we'd done in the past. And for whatever reasons, I don't know whether it was a matter of Warner Bros. I don't think it was ever really given a fair chance. I have my own theories about our last album with Warner Bros.
As far as being our last project on Warner Bros. And you could say, "Oh well, that's sour grapes and the guy's just making excuses," but I really believed in that song, and it kind of hurt me that it didn't do better than it did.
They don't have any sort of outrageous scenes -- kicking people around and destroying hotels. And they tend, because of that, to get underrated. They do have a tremendous following; I guess it's a large group of hard-core Americans who like something that isn't too rocky -- which is what they fit into.
For this minute performance, the three nearly interchangeable lead singers, Garry Beckley [sic], Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek, shared the stage with a basic rock band and a small forest of potted plants.
The band moved rapidly through its material, performing nearly 20 songs, beginning with some of its better known oldies like "Muskrat Love" and "Ventura Highway," then moving to new selections from the "Harbor" LP and back to the hits, closing on "Horse With No Name.
But as the evening warmed up, so did the show. Midway through it became apparent that for all its pretty country rock harmonizing, America is also a band that rocks. It had been a while, and the place seemed smaller, somewhat tawdry, almost haunted.
I imagined bats winging in and out, spider webs in the corners, and the president upstairs in the family quarters, talking back to the TV, railing against Nancy Pelosi, the Federal Reserve, Robert S. Oh, yes, Barack Obama for, well, everything. Callie and Ethan lead their team through an overrun college in search of a man who has possession of a possible vaccine to the "Zombie" virus.

The scarce 8-track features a different front cover from the vinyl, using the band picture from inside the gatefold of the LP, and the track sequence is altered, kicking off with rather than Down On The Street, and splitting the title track over two programmes. Of course it sold very poorly and is arguably more valuable than the original vinyl. The earlier releases, such as their self-titled debut, Rocket To Russia and Leave Home, tend to be the most fancied by collectors, with Leave Home produced in versions both with and without Carbona Not Glue.
Riding on the retro wave, 70s power-pop superstars Cheap Trick released their album The Latest in a very limited 8-track edition.
The band had trouble finding a manufacturer but located KTS Productions — a small family-run business in Arlington, Texas — which was still producing 8-track cartridges some 20 years after the format was largely declared dead. This rare double-play 8-track was released alongside the vinyl edition in Issued in the US as a double cartridge, the 8-track came with a sticker warning purchasers about potentially offensive language.
A surprisingly high number of punk-era 8-tracks were produced and these are increasingly collected — for their memorabilia potential rather than to be played. When 8-track stereo tape players were introduced as an option by the Ford Motor Company for the model year, every buyer upgrading was given a free demonstration 8-track tape with four selections of music to demonstrate the quality of the sound. Early demo 8-track tapes offered up to 70 minutes of music on a Victor-8 Lear Jet Pak-designed cartridge and were placed in the glove box or console for the new car buyer to discover.
Tapes typically covered a range of music and styles including classical and big band, country and pop. The tapes effectively complete the restoration and can score additional points with show judges. Think of a popular artist and there was probably a bootleg produced, from Aerosmith to Frank Zappa.
Very little effort seems to have been made to reproduce the official artwork, with a parade of crudely drawn and poorly reproduced labels adorning the cartridges.
However, no further evidence of this release being anything more than a spoof has emerged in the intervening years. In , Morrissey released Years Of Refusal and an image purporting to be a much-used 8-track copy was posted to the web.
