Pousette Dart Band - Amnesia

The Pousette Dart Band's music is like the Eagles (the Long Run) or The (Nitty Gritty) Dirt Band (American Dream). The single "Amnesia" was a minor hit and "Fall On Me" was featured in the TV series "Lost" but still, most people will never have heard of them. You can listen to the samples of this album here.
County Line - Fall On Me - Amnesia - I Think I Know - May You Dance I Don't Know Why - Winterness - Who's That Knockin' - Listen to the Spirit - Yaicha
