Blu-Ray pressing. America: Live In Chicago presents an unique and intimate performance from the legendary band that defined the early '70s Folk sound and ruled the Top 10 charts with their evocative harmonies and acoustic-styled musicianship. The memorable 20 song set includes greatest hits as well as rare live versions of "Head and Heart", "Till the Sun Comes Up Again" and "The Last Unicorn" - plus a special on-stage appearance by Christopher Cross on the song "Lonely People." Note! DTS sound. If the player is not DTS capable, go into the audio set-up and choose Dolby Digital 5.1 to hear the audio.
As broadcast on PBS from 1974 through 1985, the concert series Soundstage presented white-hot rock and pop acts from all over the world, including artists such as The Temptations, Al Green, Benny Goodman and Bob Dylan, in one-hour increments. The program resurfaced to immense acclaim (with the same format) in 2003; one of those concerts, with the popular 1970s pop band America, is featured in this release. Filmed before a live audience, the outfit performs such era-defining staples as "Lonely People," "Horse with No Name," "Ventura Highway" and "Don't Cross the River." Surprise guests who perform with the band include Christopher Cross and Henry Diltz. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
