Advertising Information for vagmusic

One of the most successful and famous band of the sixties is The Association. It is well known that they sold more than thirty million records, which allowed them to earn six gold discs and one platinum. Indeed, “The Association, Greatest Hits,” still remains as one of the longest best-selling albums in the history of Warner Brothers. The following number one hits, “Windy,” “Never My Love" and “Cherish,” have reached recognition and gained lots of airplay. 

This group also wrote and performed the soundtrack, “Goodbye Columbus,” with which they won the Golden Globe and Foreign Press Awards. Besides this, other songs such as “Time For Living,” “Along Comes Mary,” “Everything That Touches You,” “Requiem For the Masses,” and “Six Man Band,” reveal their talented voices, versatility, and exclusive instrumentation.

In relation to the origin of this group, it is important to know that they started rehearsing for a couple of months and then began performing at high schools, nightclubs, folk clubs, coffeehouses, college, proms and parties along California. Since their first album topped the charts, they soon collected huge amounts of money.

The Association is the first electric group that has broken the anti-rock biases in most of the places around the country, for example, performances at The Copacabana, Hollywood’s Greek Theatre, Tanglewood Music festival, Blossom Music Festival and some more. In addition, for this group, the main honor has been to open the first international pop festival in America, The Monterey Pop Festival. It is also interesting to notice that the list of television shows, at which they appeared, is countless. In spite of having constant appearances on TV and concerts, the members of the group inevitably decided to pursue individual careers.
