One of the most successful bands to come out of the 60's, The Association has sold over 80 million records, tapes, CDs, and DVDs. They've earned a number of achievement awards, as well as six gold records and two platinum records. Their album, THE ASSOCIATION GREATEST HITS, continues to be one of the longest best-selling albums in the history of the Warner Brothers company. Their hits include classics like "Never My Love," "Windy," "Along Came Mary," and "Cherish."
It all started in 1965 with the breakup of one of the first folk rock ensembles called, "The Men." What was originally an eleven member singing group, ultimately became the six man band named, "The Association!" In 1967, The Association made history being the first band anywhere to open a rock festival - the now historic, Monterey Pop Festival.
