America – 50th Anniversary: The Collection (vinyl)

In this digital world, people are turning back to vinyl for music. Bands and artists are acknowledging this by releasing music on those large, flat black discs to be played on turntables. It makes sense that a band which in 2019 celebrated its 50th anniversary would release their latest Best Of on vinyl.

Most have turned to vinyl due to the sound. There is something organic sounding about listening to music on vinyl. Here the sound is decent but not great. Another disappointment is, due to the nature of this being a best of, that there are no lyrics.

On the plus side, it is America. The British-American band has been making hits since the late 60s. A collection like this brings you through the entirety of their career. Enjoy “You Can Do Magic”, “A Horse with No Name” and “Muskrat Love” and a whole bunch of other songs from the band.
