Ambrosia

Los Angeles quartet Ambrosia, whose founding members included guitarist/vocalist David Pack, bassist/vocalist Joe Puerta, keyboardist Christopher North, and drummer Burleigh Drummond, fused symphonic art rock with a slickly produced pop sound. The group was discovered in 1971 by Los Angeles Philharmonic conductor Zubin Mehta, who featured Ambrosia as part of a so-called All-American Dream Concert. However, it took them four more years to get a record contract; Ambrosia was released in 1975 and spawned the chart singles "Holdin' on to Yesterday" and "Nice, Nice, Very Nice." (The latter was based on Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle.) Ambrosia scored another hit in 1977 with a cover of the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour" from the film All This and World War II, which they also appeared in.

North left the group just before their biggest pop breakthrough in 1978 with the number three hit "How Much I Feel." Ambrosia followed this success in 1980 with another number three hit, "Biggest Part of Me," and the number 13 follow-up "You're the Only Woman." Their next album failed, ending their run of chart success, and the group broke up; individual members are still active as session musicians and vocalists, as well as producers.

David Pack's 1985 solo album Anywhere You Go actually featured both Puerta and Drummond (alongside Kerry Livgren, Michael McDonald, Stanley Clarke, and Toto's Michael Porcaro), and the band reunited several years later. Several tours followed during the '90s, along with new recordings featured on the band's 1997 Anthology release. Pack left after 2001 for additional solo projects, and the band released the concert album Live a year later without him. ~ Steve Huey

I lost a college friend to an auto accident, going home in NW OH in the Spring. He and his friends loved this band. 35 years later, I cannot shake the notion that this his posthumous favorite. I have had the chance to live a full life, but he died as a mere college kid. Hope you enjoy, Neil.

This song always reminds me of Jim, who I loved but was too young to realize what it all meant. He used to say this song was us. You were right, Jim.

I agree that the album cover seems awkward..The hair is a good 80's laugh! However the song Biggest Part of Me is so romantic and smooth.

Just had the opportunity to see Ambrosia last month. It was a great show. You're the Only Woman and How Much I feel are in my top ten favorite songs of all time list-and I was just a child when those came out. That's how iconic those songs are to me

Such a Awesome love song. I love singing along with it.
