MIRACLE MIRROR / The Golden Earrings
Miracle Mirror is Golden Earring's third album and is recorded after the band made a few changes in their lineup. Rhythm guitarist Peter De Ronde had left the group and lead singer Frans Krassenburg was replaced by Barry Hay. This meant that Miracle Mirror is a very different album than its two predecessors.
One thing that the three albums do have in common is that they are all very much reflecting what's going on in the British music scene at that moment. In case of Miracle Mirror this means that psychedelia dominates, like the folkie "Gipsy Rhapsody", the blues-influenced "Must I Cry?" or the grand scale pop number "Crystal Heaven".
