American Pie is the second studio album by the American singer-songwriter Don McLean, released by United Artists Records on 24 October 1971. The album was released to much acclaim, later being included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
American Pie transcended rock, pop and folk genres with its meaningful, well-crafted songs about artistry, honesty, and inspiration over commercialism.
"American Pie" has remained as much a cultural touchstone as a song, sung by everyone from Garth Brooks to Madonna, its title borrowed for a pair of smutty teen comedies, while the record itself has earned a registered three-million plays on U.S. radio stations." - Allmusic.com
