Biography

America was a light folk-rock act of the early '70s who had several Top Ten hits, including the number ones "A Horse with No Name" and "Sister Golden Hair." Vocalists/guitarists Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley met while they were still in high school in the late '60s; all three were sons of U.S. Air Force officers who were stationed in the U.K. After they ...

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give this ten stars if I could!!!! 2 Nov 2004
By America Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
America is one of my all-time favorite groups and I still see them once or twice a year when they come to the Northern Virginia area (they were just at the Birchmere in October). Dewey and Gerry are just two nice, down to earth guys who really appreciate their fans and always go out of their way to talk to them after the show and sign autographs.

Hourglass is one of those CDs that have stayed in constant play since I received it and will for some time. ALL the songs are good but "Young Moon" and "Mirror to Mirror" particularly stand-out.

If you're an America fan, trust me: buy it, play it, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An undiscovered treasure! 29 Aug 2003
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I cannot understand why this album wasn't a hit when it was released in 1994! An excellent easy listening album. Young Moon and Hope were released as singles. Dewey Bunnell seems to standout on this CD. His songs Sleeper Train, Whole Wide World, and Garden of Peace are great. Gerry Beckley's best is Call of the Wild which is very strong. The only question I have about it is why did they re-record You Can Do Magic? They didn't even experiment with it, they just re-recorded an almost note for note performance of the orginal 1982 hit. But all in all, I strongly recommend this CD. Falls into my shudda been a hit category!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Welcome Return 20 Nov 2003
By Brett Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a must-have for any serious America fan. It broke a ten year drought between albums, though still picking up pretty much from where they'd left off with "Perspective", one of their most underrated albums.
The second half of this album is not as strong as the first, but the first seven tracks are all as good as anything they'd ever done before, so that is entirely forgiveable. There's not much wrong with any of the other songs either. Dewey Bunnell shines throughout, his "Sleeper Train" and "Whole Wide World" recalling the glory days of "Ventura Highway". He collaborates with Beckley on my two very favourite tracks though, namely "Young Moon" and the glorious "Garden Of Peace".
Sadly this album failed to find its audience, but if you missed it when it came out it's not too late. You certainly won't regret the purchase.
One star is docked for the continued use of drum machines (Did they learn nothing from "Your Move"?) Otherwise perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best case of mistaken identity turning out for the good! 30 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw the title and "American Gramaphone" and assumed in was some dreamy Mannheim Steamroller tripe. Was I ever knocked out to hear those vaguely familiar voices singing some of the best songs I've heard in years. I can't find a "throw away". Sleeper Train and Close To The Wind are my personal favorites while my wife favors Garden of Peace. Brian Wilson and Chip Davis didn't hurt the effort, but why this wasn't a commercial success and I had to stumble on it by mistake in 1999 is the biggest disappointment of this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING LATTER DAY RELEASE FOR AMERICA! 24 April 2005
By D. L Masters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Make no mistake, Hourglass recaptures the magic of America in it's prime, circa 1972-1976. Production is great, the songs are all top drawer and Gerry and Dewey never sounded better. Hourglass kicks off with a stellar "Young Moon" that sets the tone for a release that should have put the boys back on the charts. The only question here: The unnecessary and unimaginative remakes of the two oldies but at least they are performed very well.

The next chapter in latter day America history is a sad one however. The followup to this masterpiece is called "Human Nature" and is easily their worst album. So bad in fact that dozens of people are selling their copies for pennies on Amazon. And it is noteworthy that after the abysmal failure of that project, America has ceased recording.
