Editor's note: this very pretty lady gives off a strange vibe of being Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, any backup R&B singer from the 60s, Joan Baez and Carol Channing all put into a musical blender and spun out in a vinyl weave. The inspiration from the mystical 16th century Indian singer is lost on me. Apparently it wasn't on her though as she is highly-caffeinated in whatever it is that she was doing here. I'm actually surprised that she is as obscure as she is because this ain't too bad! She has a nice nose too. Oh yeah, Stairway to Heaven is an original and not a Zeppelin re-hash, unfortunately.

At the time of this album, Mirabai was in a New Age spiritual group with strong connections to Sai Baba (India), and that is the connection. Thanks for posting this; I haven't heard it in 40 years!

I haven't heard this album in decades. I used to own it, then someone nicked it. I haven't been able to find it since. More interesting than I remembered it being. Not great but nice.

Used to listen to Mirabai sing in the basement of St Marks church in the Village where Hilda used to hold meditations about 45 years ago. So beautiful!!!
