JIM GOLD AND THE GALLERY
One night Mike Theodore and I were driving down Eight Mile Road in Detroit and we happened to see the bar called “The Poison Apple” where the parking lot was jammed. The sign outside said a live band was appearing there so we pulled into the lot and went into the bar. We were surprised to see two guitarists singing and playing acoustic guitars to a packed house. It was singer/writer guitarist Jim Gold and his guitarist buddy Mike Novak.

Mike Theodore and I decided to get Jim signed to Sussex Records and record an album on Jim under his group name “The Gallery”. We had two smash singles by Gallery on their first album; “Nice To Be With You” written by Jim, and “I Believe in Music” written by Mac Davis. In 1972, Gallery was voted The Best New Single’s Group of ’72 by Cash Box, and The Best Vocal Group by Record World.
