Ambrosia fuses symphonic 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. Their self titled release 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. Ambrosia scored 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.”
