For the German-Dutch musician, see Amber (singer).

Amber was a British acoustic world music band.

Inspired by The Incredible String Band, the band consisted of two of Donovan's old friends Julian MacAllister and Mac MacLeod, and they were joined by Ray Cooper on hand drums. Donovan had been given a sitar by George Harrison and had lent the instrument to MacLeod, who played it on many of their songs. Keith Relf produced a set of recordings which came out many years later on the Shagrat label titled Pearls of Amber.

Many of those Relf produced tracks are on the MacLeod anthology CD The Incredible Musical Odyssey of the Original Hurdy Gurdy Man on the RPM Cherry Red label.
