FlinterFile: America- Sister Golden Hair
In 1975, America released its fifth album, Hearts. The song Sister Golden Hair, however, was older. It was written by Gerry Beckley for the fourth album. The members of America thought it was about his sister, but actually its about several girls, but no-one in particular. The song did not make it to the choice of songs for the album, so the song had a year to ripe, which it did. The time was right for it to be recorded, with George Martin as the producer. He was producer of several Beatles songs, but also Say Say Say and Candle In The Wind. With this song, he scored his twentieth number 1 hit in the US. Enjoy
