Amaret Album Discography
By Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, Randy Watts, and Peter Preuss
Last update: April 30, 2010

Amaret was the home of the group Crow, who had several chart records near the start of the 1970s, the biggest of which was "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)". The label began in 1969 distributed by Capitol, but in 1972 shifted to distribution by MGM.

Note from guitarist Mike Ciccarelli of the group Triangle: "I was happy to see the Triangle album (ST5001) in your listing under Amaret. I was the guitar player/vocalist on it and it was a remarkable outing. It got a five star rating in Billboard in June 1969 (Neil Young got four and a half), but was never supported with quantities or promotion. I spelled my name at the time Carelli for simplicity. The drummer, Ty Grimes went on to play for Ricky Nelson and left the group right before the plane crash that killed all members. The bass player went on to engineer/produce many hits including 'Freebird' by Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Leo Sayer hits. The Triangle album was also co-produced by Chris Huston, an Englishman who produced some Led Zeppelin albums."

The Amaret label was green with black print, with the Amaret logo at the left side of the label. The logo featured a series of concentric circles, leading some dealers to mistakenly list the label name as "Camaret." Capitol-distributed issues had "stereo" and the record number to the right of the hole, but the MGM issies added the MGM logo at the far right side of the label.
