From: RI originally, OH lately (USA)

Saw them in a very private concert at Wheeler AFB, Hawaii at the NCO club--they were kicking off a military tour. Must have sat less than 50 feet away, had to be less than 100 people present. First time I ever heard "In the Greenhouse". It was also the first time I ever saw them live. What an experience!

From: Detmold / Germany

My big luck was that I had a brother who bought me a guitar when I was
12 years old. And this "HORSE" never went out of my mind. 21 Years la-
ter, itīs still there and it hasnīt got a name.
It took me 23 years to see two "LIVE-acts" and I want to see more.
Today, my 3 year old son knows already to handle the CD-player and
guess, whatīs in the slide???? Hourglass. His favorite is "Young Moon"
and "You can Do Magic". I hope I can take him to a concert.
Auf Wiedersehen, Andreas

P.S: Where can I get the songbook "America complete" includes every
Album from the first one up to "Harbor"

From: California

I went to Bush Hall in London, with the boys back in 1966/67. One of them was in my study hall. I went to the Rec dances that they were practicing at. Bushy Hall will have a big reunion in Texas in August 1999, if they are interested. I would like to see if they remembered who I was in school. If they get a chance to e-mail me, that would be great. Thanks, Adrienne

Kudos!!! to all of you for doing such a great job on your informative site. I've been looking all over for news on the ONE group that I literally grew up with (born in 1971) as I was exposed to them as a baby (the only time I stopped crying was when my older brother played their songs!). I love their music, but sad to say not many people here in Asia, especially Malaysia, that's where I'm from know about them, but I've converted a few. Once again, great job and keep it up. Keep AMERICA alive!

hello everyone,
I just got into America this year, and I've missed a lot. They are truly a great band. I was lucky to see them and get autographs. My favorite song is the Last Unicorn and Mans Road. They didn't play those but I love the others too. Their voices are so beautiful together- its great. Well I hope everyone continues to enjoy them. =)

From: Upper Hutt, New Zealand

This is a great website, there is so much information here and it is all kept well up to date. I have only recently become interested in America, and only because of my father. He has a large record collection from way back when he was a youngster, and a few weeks ago I pulled out America's first album and, intrigued, had a listen to it. I loved it, it was brilliant! The guitarwork is amazing, the lyrics are deep and meaningful and the vocals are superb, especially all three in unison. I haven't had a chance to listen to any of their other albums but I certainly hope to. If their other albums are anything like their debut album, then I'm sure I'll be hooked! Thanks for putting information about a great band within anybody's reach.

From: USA -- but living abroad...

Interesting that I found this site, for I have wondered whether or not such a thing existed. I have been a "fan" for at least twenty of my thirty-one years... My earliest recollections are fragile, fleeting scenes of the arizona desert, the taut, sparkling string acoustics -- subtle yet all-embodying of an impressionable time of my life. I would be interested in some genuine dialogue, if at all possible.

We are missing America in Germany.
When is the next tour in Germany? The last was in January 1995...

I can't believe I've missed this site. I treasure a real America web site, which loos creatively and critically at the group -- critically as in not a "puff web site". Soon, I will sit down and write a narrativce of my history with America, including a interview with the band when I was just 21 years old and frightened as hell. Anyway, thanks for the memories and the times yet to come.

From: Tustin, California

America was the first concert I ever attended at Anaheim Stadium in or about 1976, they played with Santana and the Beach Boys, I've been hooked ever since! It was a nice bonus to see that the "Harbor" album released in 1977 included a poster with a snapshot from that concert. I recently saw them at the Orange County Fair in 1997, and it took me back to "the good 'ol days" once again. Nice job guys!

I saw America last night, 07/25/97, at the Orange County fair. It was the most fun I've had in a while. The music was awesome and everyone loved it. I was fortunate enough to be back stage with a friend and everyone I met was extremely nice. This is a great site, keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing America again soon.

I'm glad to have found this website! I like this group a lot (and so does my 4-year-old daughter) but you can't find their records here in Sweden. My favorite song is The Last Unicorn.

The best part of this web is, according to my wife, the lyrics to all the songs. Wonderful! It's really hard to hear the text sometimes, especially when it's not your native language. So long!

Hi Steve! Been a long time. I got just a few minutes and all I can do is sign your guestbook. Been very busy. Had time to read the new hstory, though and enjoyed it immensely.
