This 1982 concert features the group's biggest hits from the '70s and even a cover of 'California Dreamin''. America's trademark light folk-rock sound dominates the beginning of the show, but the more it progresses - rather surprisingly - the harder the band rocks out, culminating in the album-closing pair of number one hits, 'Sister Golden Hair' and 'A Horse with No Name'.

America - 'King Biscuit Flower Hour' (King Biscuit)

"I've always dug this AM pop/soft rock artist because even though they play what many would consider 'soft rock',America was ALWAYS cool to hear,whatever the mood or setting.Another memorable archive release from the King Biscuit Flower Hour's sacred vaults.This fourteen track disc's shindig was recorded somewhere in the summer of 1982.Most of the prime cuts are here,like "Tin Man","Ventura Highway",the timeless ballad "I Need You",their Mama&Papa's cover "California Dreamin'","Sister Golden Hair" and "Horse With No Name".I've seen these guys play live twice now and I even remember getting ahold of an audio bootleg cassette of one of their shows.Hard to believe,but there was VERY little difference between the bootleg and this release.Except the boot ran a bit bit longer in duration.A nice find."
A great album

"The rock group America formed in 1969, when a group of teenage "Army brats" got together to make great music. Throughout the 1970s, they produced some of the finest musical numbers of the era - Ventura Highway, Tin Man, Sister Golden Hair, etc. After their 1978/9 reorganization, you probably thought that the best was over, right? Well, in this fantastic 1982 live concert, they showed that they still had it.They played some oldies, like Tin Man, and some new ones like You Can Do Magic. My personal favorite was Inspector Mills. This is a great album, with lots of great tunes. Yes, it's live, but it sounds great, with those America tunes coming through loud and clear. I love this album, and highly recommend it to you!"
