AMBROSIA -- Anthology (Warner Brothers)

One of the most sought after groups on CD is Ambrosia. Their albums have never been available on compact disc in the US, and only a select few have been released overseas. Finally, after all these years, the band has just released their first compilation disc. Most of the big FM hits are included--"Nice Nice Very Nice," "Holdin' On to Yesterday," "Time Waits For No One," and "Life Beyond L.A."--as well as the MOR tracks "Biggest Part of Me" and "How Much I Feel." Ambrosia fans will be excited to see *anything* by the band on CD, but hardcore fans will be disappointed in the song selection. On a positive note, the liner notes are informative and the sound quality is impeccable.
