    My favourite track, apart from Horse With No Name, is Three Roses on the first album. Homecoming is almost as good as the first album. I was disappointed by Hat Trick at the time, but it sounds okay now.

    I think Horse With No name is a great track and I am not really a Neil Young fan.

    America were sons of officers from the service,Air Force I believe.The name America was suitable for them.Their harmonies and mixture of acoustic guitars made them ahead of their time.

    I really like these guys, despite I've only heard their debut album and some tracks, as Ventura Highway.

    I love that album, love the acoustic guitars, their folky sound.

    Sandman is one of my favourites, as well as Horse With No Name, but I'm gonna put here another one:

    I never knew that. Mumy was also in a pretty cool movie or two. It's funny but Norm's Rare Guitars is now right up the street from me. I went in there a couple of times before seeing their logo on someone's shirt in a movie. I wondered why all the guitars were priced so high even for rare guitars. It doesn't look like it from the outside but I guess it's a boutique guitar shop.

    I like the music they did with Beatles' producer Sir. George Martin on "Holiday",especially the Beatle-esque background vocals on "Lonely People".

    Well I will be picking up the 5 album box set of their first 5 albums in mini LP form, I will also be picking up the "Here and Now" album as it sound brilliant and I was on that tour, I wish I had picked it up years ago as I think they are one of the best and I am in that mood to lay back and chill.
