The United States of America is a 1968 album by The United States of America. Produced by David Rubinson, it was released by Columbia Records in 1968.
The album is littered with references to Byrd's obsession with old-time American music such as the dixieland jazz intro on "I Won't Leave My Wooden Wife for You, Sugar". The American Metaphysical Circus" also starts out with no fewer than 5 layers of sound being heard in a collage. A calliope playing "National Emblem", a ragtime piano playing.
Shortly after the albums release, The United States of America disbanded. It is unknown what exactly caused this due to different stories from the band members, but it was likely creative differences between the two lead singers, Joseph Byrd and Dorothy Moskowitz.
