Retro of the day: Gallery

Gallery was a 1970s American soft  rock band, formed in Detroit, Michigan by Jim Gold.[1] While Gallery did record a number of songs, they are most famous for their early- to mid-1972 hit single, “Nice to Be with You”, written by Gold.[2] The song was arranged and produced by Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore and released by Sussex Records. Sales of one million copies of that single earned the band a gold record.[2] The song reached #4 on the U.S.
Billboard Hot 100[2] and remained in the Hot 100 for 22 weeks, tying with War‘s “Slippin’ Into Darkness” for most weeks on that chart during the calendar year 1972. Billboard ranked it as the No. 14 song for 1972.[3]

Gallery followed up in late 1972 with a cover of Mac Davis‘ “I Believe in Music,” which charted moderately well at number 22.[1] They also toured across the South Pacific.
