Three Air Force brats met in England, sons of Air Force personnel stationed in London, and began performing as “America” shortly after their high school graduation. Success came early with two top ten hits on their first album. The second hit, following the success of “A Horse With No Name” was “I Need You”. The song hit #9 on the Hot 100 in 1972, stuck around as an oldie for a couple of years, and then dropped off the earth. “I Need You” is a solid song, and I will never understand why it’s been forgotten today.
