Liner Notes

Trish Robbins - vocals; Jill Bergman - vocals; Bridgely ? - vocals

Not much is known about this Bay Area band that featured multiple female vocalists, except they were funky and trippy all in the same breath. The group owed a considerable debt to the Jefferson Airplane/ Starship, so it was no surprise when they were added to a multiple-night, triple bill at Bill Graham's Winterland Auditorium that featured the classic line-up of Starship, along with Country Joe McDonald as the middle act.

Mirrors opens the show with "Part time Lover," an energetic rocker that sounds equal parts early Jefferson Airplane and progressive jazz fusion. Most of the other songs in this set are title-less, but position the band as a mix between the Slick-oriented Starship and the more funk-driven sound of Cold Blood, yet another legendary band from SF.

On "Your Love Is Haunting Me" they again try to get funky when the song was really designed to be a ballad. This is a story about a bitter lover who is angry at a departed loved one that died unexpectedly.

The rest of the show features two band originals: "I've Been Holding Back" and "Get On The Right Track," written with the inspiration of James Browns' "Get on the Good Foot." They end the show with a homogenized version of the Four Tops' comeback hit "Are You Man Enough?"

The little success that Mirrors saw during 1974 and '75 was centered around the band's life in Northern California. They recorded a few singles for Capitol Records but any album they may have recorded is long since out of print. Still, this recording for the Bill Graham archives exists and should give fans a good idea as to the musical identity of the Mirrors.
