Album Review

Their great one-shot hit “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” pegged the group as a smiley, sunshiny AM pop frivolity, and while they surely shone in this regard, Looking Glass started out as a hard-boogying rock & roll band, and elements of that can be heard on their 1972 debut. It’s not enough to make the LP an unearthed hard rock treasure thanks in large part to producer Bob Liftin, who helped turn singer/songwriter Elliot Lurie’s “Brandy” into a seamless, sunny confection and wound up defanging whatever rock & roll bite the group had in the process. Consequently, Looking Glass winds up as a bit of a bumpy listen, careening from pop to rock and spending a lot of time in between, but not unpleasantly so: there’s enough panache in Liftin’s production and enough punch in Lurie’s melodies to give this a welcome ‘70s sheen.

Brandi

I think that's the spelling. It's my favorite song here. Give it a chance

GREAT

this song is soo good! I love it. It tells a great story and a catchy toon

Gem from the 70`s!

From what I`ve read, `Brandy` was a blessing and a curse --- an absolute fantastic song that the band felt never reflected the Boogie Woogie sound that they brought to their live shows. It confused and polarized the audience, and led to their eventual demize. But hey, the song is a must have, and this album pretty much rocks from head to toe. A lost gem from a time when music was pure. Three quarters of the members returned in the band Starz.

To the outside observer, Looking Glass were one of the luckiest bands to come up during the early '70s — and doubly so, coming out of New Jersey in 1972 with a number one hit, three years before anyone was thinking about Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, and getting radio play on the song that has carried over into the oldies and '70s nostalgia boom over the decades since. Ironically, the bandmembers were never entirely happy...
