Day 16

Ambrosia- One Eighty
The soundtrack for American Graffiti.

Not much to say about this Ambrosia record, but that they are known today as a soft rock band probably because of this record. And that's not a bad thing, but as the album title suggests, it really is a "One Eighty" from their previous song. Still though it has one of my favorite soft rock songs of all time on it, "The Biggest Part of Me". I absolutely love this song! I've put this record on numerous times just to listen to this song. If I had a 45 for it, I'd probably get rid of the record.

Now for American Graffiti. Great movie, and even better soundtrack. Double LP full of great hits from the 50's and early 60's. And you can't beat the Wolfman Jack intros to some of the songs. That's all I'll say about this album. I'm just going to list the songs on here so you can see what I'm talking about. Pick it up if you need some 50's and 60's music in your collection.
