5.0 out of 5 stars Mountain Peaks! 24 May 2007
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD Audio
One of rock's loudest and heaviest bands of the seventies, Mountain held its own as a showcase for live shows. Although they only had one monster hit, "Mississippi Queen", they were FM radio staples. This live set shows the raw power that Leslie West has with his amazing and unique guitar playing. Highlights are "Mississippi Queen", "Roll Over Beethoven" and the classic, "Theme For An Imaginary Western". Fantastic set and in DVD-Audio, this album really delivers!

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware the meaning of dvd audio 29 Oct 2009
Format:DVD Audio
If you are expecting an in-concert video show here you will be disappointed. What appears to be concert footage is an audio cd plus some out-dated (e.g.with Steve Knight) still photos. The cd is available in quite a few releases elsewhere. The low rating is relevant to the deceptive advertising, not the performance! Mountain were (and still are) great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mountain Peaks! 24 May 2007
By Martin A Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio
One of rock's loudest and heaviest bands of the seventies, Mountain held its own as a showcase for live shows. Although they only had one monster hit, "Mississippi Queen", they were FM radio staples. This live set from the 'King Bisquit Flower Hour' series shows the raw power that Leslie West had with his amazing and unique guitar playing. Felix Pappalardi's vocals were always strong and Corky Lang's drumming rivaled anyone of that era. Highlights are "Mississippi Queen", "Roll Over Beethoven" and the classic, "Theme For An Imaginary Western". Fantastic set and in DVD-Audio, this album really delivers!
2.0 out of 5 stars OK Audio for what it is, but the edits and crappy packaging/production is unforgiveable 7 Sep 2013
By James Zinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
I'm an old Mountain fan from the 1970s and prefer their first 3 LPs the most. I own them on vinyl and CD, but only purchased these CDs recently as I had settled for "The Best Of Mountain" to get by. I skipped their later LPs as friends of mine had them, and they had just simply creatively exhausted themselves by then.

I did see Mountain live in around 1984 (post-Felix) at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, KS, and was seriously disappointed in their performance and it was cut short by Leslie's guitar cord getting chopped off in the middle of a solo by one of Corky's cymbals falling over, which then resulted in a (mock?) argument/fight between the two as the music suddenly stopped. They got another guitar cord, played "Mississippi Queen", flipped off the crowd and left the stage. Show's over. They got booed for good reason. They also were so loud, I thought I was going to hurl a few times. I probably got hearing damage from it, too.

Well over time I got over it and started collecting a few CDs I wanted and decided to give this DVD-Audio a try. I read the mixed reviews about this DVD-Audio of Mountain and decided to purchase it and give it a spin for myself as I want to start collecting a few more DVD-Audio discs. I knew this was a risk to buy a 1970s (?) Mountain concert on DVD-Audio for sound quality but I got it new for only $7.

This disc does have a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, and also indicates a "THX pm3" compatibility and has a few other icons on it but since the print is so tiny, they can't even be read when using reading glasses. Perhaps we need a magnifying glass?

Now for other gripes. The menus do NOT have a selection for sound fields between stereo and surround modes. The "Credits" menu item only tells who the songwriters & publishers are, but has ZERO information on who plays on the disc. Obviously from listening Leslie West and Felix Pappalardi appear, but who knows who the drummer is. Also no information on when the show was, nor where it originated. Interestingly, most of this same information from "Credits" is already on the "flip card" for a booklet. It even says there are audio "options" on the back cover, yet there is no way to select an audio option on the disc. One reviewer complains about only a still photo per song for video, but after all, this IS a DVD-AUDIO disc.

A surround system audio test is included as a menu item, but it seems to be more of a marketing gimmick rather than a serious test, as the channels are not selectable, no continuous noise, and a female voice only states the channel name for each, then moves on. Hard to do any serious volume evaluation to.

I do like the performance overall, for what it is, it does sound OK but not hardly audiophile, for a 24-bit 48/96 kHz transfer.

Now for the worst atrocity. Two songs are edited. They just fade out and disappear in the middle of a song. Wha?

Overall, not a bad listen but the negatives force me to only give it a 2-star rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars I DISAGRE COMPLETELY 4 Jun 2011
By H. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
although i agree substancally, everything said abut this band is true- But the DVD-A, I got better sound on my other best of mountian cds. I Guess if theres some rare song here it might be worth it- otherwise just buy a used copy of one of thier best cds because as far as superiour sound- Theres nothing to hear here folks.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Concert Video Disappointment !! 23 July 2012
By Mr. M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
Beware of the DVD-Audio From The Front Row series as I put it on and......NO CONCERT VIDEO !! Just one B & W still for each song. I assume it's the same for all as I read another review of the Kansas F.T.F.R. disc and it was the same. Not only that, I was just getting into their excellent version of Roll Over Beethoven and it just cuts out and goes to the next song, not a fault with the DVD but inexplicable editing. I was going to give this 3 stars for the audio which unlike another reviewer indicates, isn't bad at all, but because of a couple of issues, notably the ridiculously edited Roll Over Beethoven, I'm editing this to 2 stars. With video footage I would have given it most likely a 4 and a half. Would have loved the concert footage because the performance here is good. If you're a Mountain fan, and they are one of my absolute favourites, you'll like this, just don't expect footage.

PS to initial review --- reviewer HTC has correctly said that DVD means Digital Versatile Disc, which is correct, and can mean just audio or both audio and video, but we all refer to our movies as Dvd's, so my mistake really in maligning the product partly for that reason, however i reckon a lot of people may have made this mistake as well. I see "dvd" and immediately think video footage and wouldnt be alone in that. Having said that i'll jack up my rating to a 3. By the way if anyone out there knows of any Mountain concert footage other than Woodstock which is only a couple of songs to my knowledge, please let me know. Not the 3 man version but with Felix of course.
