Album of the Day
America formed in London, so it's only fitting that after years of international success, the trio would return to the city to make their fourth studio album, HOLIDAY. Producer George Martin and engineer Geoff Emerick were behind the boards for the sessions, and a Bealtle-esque focus on melody and craftsmanship rings through these dozen tracks. “Tin Man” and “Lonely People” were both Top 10 hits stateside - the album as a whole reached #3 - but the Warner Bros. collection includes several others that are are equally strong (“Another Try,” “Old Man Took”). America's Dan Peek was born on this day in 1950, and we'll mark the occasion with one of his band's best albums, HOLIDAY.
