The duo Amber was one of the interesting folk-rock-psychedelic projects to add Macintosh MacLeod as an associate, although they didn’t have the ability to release anything throughout their lifetime. MacLeod produced Amber in the first 1970s with Julian MacAllister, who like MacLeod was a pal of Donovan’s. Amber’s make of acidity folk was rather like Donovan’s, also to a fainter level the Amazing String Band’s, acoustic but blending in sitar, tabla, and percussion. Ex-Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf regarded joining them, and even though he didn’t, Relf do generate some unreleased monitors on their behalf in 1971. Pre-eminent United kingdom folk-rock manufacturer Joe Boyd’s Witchseason firm wanted to printer ink them, however the agreements weren’t authorized. Despite their guarantee, Amber never do put out information before they split in stress while looking forward to a offer they needed. Another from the last straws was Donovan composing MacLeod in 1971 to reclaim tools he’d lent the group. Materials documented by Amber do surface for the ten-inch EP Pearls of Amber for the Shagrat label in 1999, and four 1971 paths by Amber show up on the Mac pc MacLeod retrospective The Amazing Musical Odyssey of the initial Hurdy Gurdy Guy.
