Ambrosia - 1975 Ambrosia
Ambrosia were working the same territory musically as Kansas and Styx in 1975 and although I am hard pressed to call Ambrosia a pomp band, there are some moments on this record, and the follow-up that will make fans of the sound stand up and take notice.

Ambrosia - 1976 Somewhere I've Never Travelled
It's been described as one of the best symphonic rock albums of the 70's. I wouldn't go quite that far, but it's not too far off the mark.

Ambrosia - 1978 Life Beyond LA
All of Ambrosia's five studio albums offer something unique and different. With this one however, the band decided to set sail for the mainstream by producing 'Life Beyond L.A' themselves alongside Freddie Piro, and dispensing with the services of Alan Parsons, who engineered the debut and produced the second 'Somewhere I've Never Travelled'. In essence, this was the album that transform Ambrosia from bit-players to superstars.

Ambrosia - 1980 One Eighty
Among all of Ambrosia's efforts,'One Eighty' is the pick of the bunch for me. The others are all good too, but it captures the band at different moments of their career. I feel that during the 1979-1980 period, Ambrosia were at their peak.

Ambrosia - 1982 Road Island
Ambrosia took a bold step on their final album however, pursuing a lumbering hard rock sound totally opposed to the gentle strains of the previous two albums.

Pack, David - 1985 Anywhere You Go
After Ambrosia had run its course, David Pack returned to the scene in a solo capacity, releasing this brilliant West Coast/AOR crossover album 'Anywhere You Go'.
