These Detroit soft-rockers got filed under "one-hit wonder" because only Nice to Be with You went Top 10. They had many choice cuts, though; here are 20: Nice to Be with You ; the hits I Believe in Music and Big City Miss Ruth Ann , plus Someone; Friends; Lady Luck; Maybe Baby their first authorized "best-of"!

Included here are all but one of the tracks from the group's two albums, omitting a cover of Jay and the American's "Sunday and Me" from their debut. Perhaps the reissue producers felt that Gold's voice sounded enough like Neil Diamond (who wrote "Sunday and Me") on "Nice to Be With You" to balance the omission, but with enough space on a CD to host both albums, the cover song's absence is disappointing. Gallery's soft-rock is tinged with both pop/rock and country sounds (most notable in Cal Freeman's steel guitar on the hit), settling into the early `70s groove then inhabited by the Stampeders, America and Lobo. Surprisingly, the band was produced by Dennis Coffey, a Motown guitarist who'd hit for himself only a few months earlier with the hard funk instrumental "Scorpio." It's great to have these albums back in print; now where's "Sunday and Me"? [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]
