Musical Interlude: A Horse With No Name (1971-2)

The pop-rock group America made its first inroads on the charts here in the US in 1972 with "A Horse With No Name". Originally a trio, America became a duo when Dan Peek left the group to concentrate on a gospel-themed solo career.

As it happened, the band's last top 40 hits came in the 80's with "You Can Do Magic" and "The Border".

Some might think there were drug references in the lyrics. I don't.
