Mini Bio (1)

Looking Glass was a 1970's pop-rock group from New Brunswick, New Jersey. The band first formed in 1969 at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. The members were: singer/guitarist Elliot Lurie, bassist Peter Sweval, pianist Larry Gonsky, and drummer Jeffrey Grob. Looking Glass started out performing at frat parties and in clubs throughout the East Coast. They were signed to the label Epic Records by Columbia Records president Clive Davis. The group made two initial abortive attempts at recording, but eventually struck gold with the extremely catchy and affecting Lurie composition "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)." "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" peaked at #1 on the Billboard radio pop charts in August, 1972 and sold a million copies. The band's self-titled debut album likewise sold a respectable number of copies. Looking Glass cracked the Top 40 with their equally engaging follow-up single "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne" in 1973. The group released their second and final album "Subway Serenade" that same year. Looking Glass broke up in 1974. However, Lurie reformed the band with a new line-up in 2003.
