Elliot Lurie Is Still Great

July 25, 2017

Elliot Lurie, best known as the lead singer of “Looking Glass” gave those of us in attendance at Lockwood Music Hall a great night to remember, with his performance and truly classy, gracious manner.

The performance included songs and stories and still sounding great performing alone, took us to that “beautiful place” only great song(s) are capable of doing.

Yes I closed my eyes and “could hear the sailor’s stories,” along with my memories as Mr. Lurie treated us to “Looking Glass’ mega hit, “Brandy (You’re a fine girl),” singing the song twice (second and last).

He told us great stories, played some new songs and brought the grateful audience songs by greats Nat King Cole and Curtis Mayfield.

Jeff Grob, the drummer from “Looking Glass,” was in the audience really coming alive for “Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne,” and was really informative as he offered great praise for that song’s producer, Arif Mardin.

Both Mr. Lurie and Mr. Grob talked to me regarding Mardin’s greatness as a producer and person.

It was a great night seeing Elliot, learning new things and going back to a great place.
