America: The Whisky, Los Angeles CA
Jeff Walker, Phonograph Record, April 1972
THE WHISKY is not the ideal club for the debut of an acoustic band; one whose demands on its audience are more cerebral than physical. Even a blunt request by the management that the audience remain seated and preferably silent during this "listening set" didn't stop the low mumble and constant shuffling. But, America did surpass it. They also dismissed any accusations that they are merely a Neil Young "rip-off" with a fluke single.
