    Ambrosia

    They formed in Los Angeles and got their break in 1971 from the Philharmonic conductor, Zubin Mehta.  They released their self-titled debut album in 1975, which was engineered by Alan Parsons and nominated for a Grammy award for Best Engineered Recording.  It also produced their first charting singles "Nice, Nice, Very Nice" and "Holdin' Onto Yesterday".  In 1977 they appeared in and arranged The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour" for the film All This and WWII.  The following year they started to see real success when their "How Much I Feel" reached No. 3 in the charts and this was equalled again by "The Biggest Part of Me" in 1980.  They participated in the recording of the first album by The Alan Parsons Project.  Their album One Eighty was released in 1980 and received three Grammy nominations.  In 1982 they sang the song "Poor Rich Boy" on the Arthur soundtrack. They split up after poor sales of their fifth album in 1982 but reformed as a touring band around 1989 and released an anthology and a further album in the mid 1990s.  They are currently still touring with the members also concentrating on solo careers.
