|The Association are considered to be one of the most popular and successful bands to have come out of the 60's. Formed in 1965, they were considered forerunners of the "folk-rock" movement. Having tested the waters in local nightclubs and coffeehouses, their fan base saw an amazing shift, growing from nearly 25,000 to millions, with the release of their first album which garnered the band their first #1 hit Cherish. From 1966-1968, the band went on to achieve success with 6 more Top 40 hits including Windy which hit #1 in 1967. To date, they have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. As part of the Pop Legends Live concert series, The Association takes to the stage to perform many of their greatest hits and other favorites. As an added feature, the Pop Legends Live series also take you backstage for rare behind-the-scenes interviews with the group. Includes Windy, Never My Love, Cherish, Along Comes Mary and 8 more!|
Editor's NoteWhile folk-rock is now firmly established as a popular staple on the modern music scene, it first found its feet in the mid 1960s, when a few bands attempted to fuse the two genres with decidedly mixed results. The Association stood out as one of the acts who fully understood how to blend the two styles, and they soon enjoyed enormous success with hit single "Cherish" and a huge-selling debut album. They're captured performing live on this release in the Pop Legends Live series, demonstrating all their charms through songs such as "Never My Love," "Windy," "Along Comes Mary," and many others.
