Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) – Looking Glass (1972)
This American band released two studio albums before front-man Elliot Lurie left the band to launch a solo career. The remaining members morphed into the band Starz, which lasted until the late 70’s. Lurie’s solo efforts failed to chart, and he began writing for other artists. He later diversified into producing film soundtracks and worked on several successful movies in the 80’s and 90’s. Founding Looking Glass member Pieter Sweval died of AIDS in 1990. In 2003, Lurie reunited with his surviving former colleagues, and they perform on the oldies circuit.
