America is the debut studio album by America, released in 1971. It was initially released without "A Horse with No Name", which was released as a single in late 1971. When "A Horse with No Name" became a worldwide hit in early 1972, the album was re-released with that track. The album went to No. 1 on the Billboard album chart in the United States and stayed there for five weeks.
America's debut album is a folk-pop classic, a stellar collection of memorable songs that would prove influential on such acts as the Eagles and Dan Fogelberg
Complete your Sousa, Henry Mancini Conducting The Warner Bros. Military Band collection.
Sousa conveyed the energy of an emerging America into his music. I had another "Sousa's Greatest Hits" album (a different choice of "greatest" of course). That album was good, but it was period recordings, with a fair amount of background noise, plus the performances, while stirring, were not that crisp.

Sousa did not usually conduct the recording sessions. Arthur Pryor, the gifted trombonist, usually conducted the recording sessions. To hear the orginal works as directed and played by the Sousa band is priceless. The Quality of these recordings are amazing considering their age. To hear the orignal meter, phrasing, and dynamics of these original recording is extremely important to anyone who is a bandsmen, and enjoys playing music of Sousa.
