Looking Glass is the first album released by the band Looking Glass in 1972. The group had been playing all up and down the East Coast in clubs, and one night they were spotted by Clive Davis at the Whisky a Go Go. Davis, who at the time was the president of Columbia Records, signed them to the Epic Records label. After trying to record two times (once with Steve Cropper in Memphis), the third was with Bob Liftin and that is where "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" was recorded
Released in 1972, Looking Glass is the band’s self-titled debut album. The album is perhaps best known for its hit single, Brandy, which offers a slightly different sound than the remaining seven tracks. Unfortunately, Looking Glass was unable to recapture the success and notoriety briefly provided by Brandy and the band dissolved in the mid-1970’s. Looking Glass Q&A. Producers Bob Lifton & Looking Glass. Writers Elliot Lurie & Piet Sweval. More Looking Glass albums.
The problem with the self-titled debut album is that it goes nowhere, much like the Arif Mardin-produced follow-up, Subway Serenade, in 1973, which had the "Brandy" clone song "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne," itself a Top 40 hit, but in the lower regions of the Top 40, and a last gasp instead of new life.
