‘Holding on To Yesterday’ by Ambrosia – Classic Hit or Miss

The group auditioned for Herb Alpert and A&M Records early on but the audition did not go well. In spite of their poor performance, Alpert let the band do some demos. Eventually they signed with Rubicon Management, which eventually landed the group a deal with 20th Century Fox Records.The first album, Ambrosia, produced by Freddie Piro, was released in 1975. It spawned the Top 20 chart single “Holdin’ On To Yesterday” as well as the minor hit “Nice, Nice, Very Nice.” The latter sets to music the lyrics to a poem in Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. The album was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Engineered Recording (other than Classical). Alan Parsons was the engineer for Ambrosia’s first album and the producer for their second. All four members of Ambrosia played on the first Alan Parsons Project album, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, which was recorded soon after Ambrosia’s first album. David Pack later appeared on the Alan Parsons album Try Anything Once (1993), co-writing, playing and providing vocals on three songs.
