The group had been playing all up and down the East Coast in clubs, and one night they were spotted by Clive Davis at the Whisky a Go Go. Davis, who at the time was the president of Columbia Records, signed them to the Epic Records label. After trying to record two times (once with Steve Cropper in Memphis), the third was with Bob Liftin and that is where Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) was recorded. It wasn't released as the single's A-side, but as the B-side to Don't It Make You Feel Good in early 1972. The song went unnoticed by most, but not by Harv Moore, a disc jockey in Washington, D.C.. It peaked 6 months after its release, and the album would chart for 16 weeks.
