"Face In The Mirror": A song written by Gene MacLellan. He was a Canadian song writer for P.E.I., best known for the song "Snowbird," he wrote for Anne Murray and for the song "Put Your Hand In The Hand" which was covered by Elvis Presley as well as the band Ocean who had a hit with it in the U.S. That song has gone on to become a Gospel standard. A couple of years ago while we were on an Eastern Canadian tour I found his first album on vinyl at a used record store. I bought it because it had his version of "Snowbird" on it, which I had never heard before. When I played the record the first song was "Face In The Mirror" and it just blew me away. Such a raw and honest song about an alcoholic, quite sad.
