Issue #347 - America make their KHJ debut this week with “A Horse With No Name.” There were plants and birds and rocks and things...
I loved "Sugaree." I didn't remember that KHJ played it, but there it is under New Music. It didn't make the Thirty, unfortunately. I don't think I appreciated at the time that Garcia was in the Grateful Dead. Not many Deadheads when I was in junior high back then."(Is This the Way to) Amarillo" didn't make the Hot 100 nationally -- it just Bubbled Under. So even here, in early 1972, KHJ was still playing records that weren't doing well in the rest of the country.
I really liked "(Is This the Way to) Amarillo." It was a nice, upbeat number in a time when low BPMs seemed to be in favor.
