LET’S GO BACK…
It’s 1972, a leap year. M*A*S*H premieres on CBS, The Godfather hits the big screen, and an up-and-coming songbird named Carly Simon takes home the Best New Artist award at the 14th Annual Grammy Awards.
After washing down one of those new Egg McMuffin sandwiches with a pitcher of Tang, you change into your $12.00 Wrangler Jeans, hop into your parents’ VW Beetle and drive to your best friend’s house to hang out in his basement. As you drive, you (literally) roll down the window and switch on the radio. As the last few bars of “Heart of Gold” finish up, you think about which records you’ll listen to when you get to your friend’s house, how you can’t wait to beat him in another game of PONG, how you hope his older sister is home and wants to hang out. Then the first chunky guitar strums of “A Horse With No Name” spill from the radio. As the guitar fades into the drifting harmonies that America is becoming famous for…you listen, warm breeze coming in through the window…you’re mesmerized and you realize that this is your new favorite driving song. Your friend can wait. You’re taking the long way.
After 40 years, America still puts on an incredible show. Let the band’s sweet harmonies take you back to the magic of the 1970’s when their Infinity Hall Live episode premieres on Friday June 12th at 10:00 pm on CPTV. Keep the good vibes going and join us for the Web Premiere Event on Facebook on Saturday, June 13th!
