Gallery was a 1970s American soft rock band, formed in Detroit, Michigan by Jim Gold. 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. The song was arranged and produced by Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore and released by Sussex Records, which earned the band a gold record for sales of one million copies. The song reached #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and lasted 22 weeks on the Hot 100, tying with War's "Slippin' Into Darkness" for most weeks on that chart all within the calendar year 1972. Gallery followed up in late 1972 with a cover of Mac Davis' "I Believe in Music," which charted moderately well at number 22. They also toured across the South Pacific.
In early 1973 Gallery's third and last Hot 100 hit, Tom Lazaros' "Big City Miss Ruth Ann," reached #23 on the Hot 100 and #7 on WCFL. A year later, "Love Every Little Thing About You" did not chart, and Gallery disbanded.
