Looking Glass--Brandy (Your a Fine Girl) 1972

     A college band was born out of Rutgers University in 1969. After graduation, the band fell apart, but two of it's members, Elliot Lurie (lead guitar, vocals) and Larry Gonsky recruited Pieter Sweval (bass) and Jeff Grob (drums) to form Looking Glass.

     The band's sound was one of straight ahead rock and roll, but as one can hear, the songs that reached the chart (Brandy, and Jimmy Loves Mary Ann from 1973) were more AM pop. This didn't sit well with Lurie who left the band in 74 and after a failed solo career settled in as a film composer....
