Numbered, Limited Edition Hybrid 5.1 Multichannel SACD! Stereo CD and SACD Mastering by Steve Hoffman!
America's 1972 homecoming album includes one of their best know hits "Ventura Highway." With its creative acoustic guitar lines, smart vocal harmonies, and spaced-out lyrics, it's a fan favorite and one of their best songs.
Homecoming was the band's second album and the trio were determined to avoid the "sophomore jinx" so when work began on the album, America pulled out all the stops to reach their goal. Their production maintains the acoustic guitar underpinning heard on the successful debut recording but builds on the sound of that first record by featuring more electric guitar and keyboards.
Homecoming is a melodic album full of catchy folk ballads and great harmonies and features two other hits, "Don't Cross the River" and "Only In Your Heart." Several other songs received heavy FM radio airplay. The album is a collection of thoughtful, well-written and skillfully sung songs...It's one of America's better albums, possibly their best.
Homecoming helped continue the band's popularity and reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart and was certified platinum by the RIAA.
"Homecoming, America's finest album, refines and focuses the folk-pop approach found on their debut release. The songs here are tighter and more forthright, with fewer extended solo instrumental sections than before. The sound quality is clear and bright; the colorful arrangements, while still acoustic guitar-based, feature more electric guitar and keyboards. The performance quality is more assured, among the most urgently committed the group would ever put on vinyl...each song here has something to recommend it. This top-flight album is a very rewarding listen." -David Cleary, allmusic.com
