Dang, I miss Ambrosia!!
Ahh yes, the decadant innocence of late 70's pop rock. I remember thinking what a boring time it was to be a teenager. In hindsight, everyone was taking a breather from all the tumult of the 60's/early 70's and just chillin' to laid back LA rock and disco.
I was recently at my gym and they were playing "Free Ride" by the Edgar Winter group. A few songs later, "Disco Inferno" came on. I was taken aback by how similar they sounded, at least in comparison to all the contemporary dance and rock stuff that they were playing in between. That's when Black musicians still used electric guitar and bass.
