I was listening to the 70′s channel on the satellite this morning when this song came on. It was a big hit when I was younger and I always enjoyed it. I preferred America to those dreary hippies in CSN&Y anytime. Still do. One thing struck me about this song today: The bass playing. It’s Joe Osborne and he’s playing his ass off. He’s not too “busy” on this track, he serves the song like a pro should, but he lifts it from a catchy, disposable song to one that merits return listens. Which is something only the greats do. So thanks Joe Osborne for making America great. Again.
