  • The album title tells the story: Ambrosia decided to head towards mainstream Pop music, creating some of the most memorable "yacht rock" songs ever made. David Pack, Joe Puerta, Burleigh Drummond and Christopher North had success prior to the release of One Eighty, but this was their breakout album that cemented them as '70s icons. In the late '70s and early '80s, there was a strong market for syrupy ballads. What better way is there then with a song where the singer is practically telling his love that he is incomplete without her and doing whatever he can to make her happy while losing his spine in the process? One Eighty produced another smash-hit, "You're the Only Woman," which surpasses the high-cheesiness standard that "Biggest Part of Me" set for the band. >>

    It also reached #3 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    For the 3 weeks it was at #3, the #1 record was "Funky Town" by Lipps, Inc. and the #2 record was "Coming Up (Live)" by Paul McCartney & Wings...
    The group's record that preceded it on the Top 100, "How Much I Feel", also peaked at #3 (and also for 3 weeks) but stayed on the chart for 21 weeks.
  • Aimee from Plant City, FlI love Ambrosia and David Pack! This band was highly underrated and sounded amazing.
