AmericaHomecoming#5 – America – “Ventura Highway” – (1972)

Speaking of beautiful songs… I consider this song quintessentially American… which is a shame, because the band that recorded it happens to be British. So it goes. This is a one of the definitive songs of this small, short-lived genre from the late 1960s/early 1970s of soft folk rock… with a country twang. Wonderful stuff… and it was a top 10 hit.
