The first time I heard this album it blew my mind. I had heard nothing from Steamhammer before and have heard nothing since, but this album has remained in the top 10 of my all time classics for over 20 years. What sounds like the studio side of the album contains some wonderful songs that are un-forgettable, solid blues with a twist, spaced out lyrics that conjure up Hobbit-like adventures, laid back accoustic melody combined with solid rock instrumentations. The pace and key changes enough to keep you glued to your seat; short well written songs that stand the test of time. Side two is an amazing contrast which is almost entirely taken up with a live medley of two classics - 'Hold That Train' and 'Ridin On The L&N'. I can hear you cringing at the prospect of having to endure yet another endless nightmare of squeeling guitar masturbation just as I did, boy was I suprised. Admittedly, there is a lot of guitar, however, it's planned, calculated, precice, elegantly flowing through east and west influences, it ebs and peaks through a solid back beat like a viper toying with it's audience. Again the pace changes to maintain your interest as does the wicked bass solo and (yes of course) the infamous drum solo which is short enough to be enjoyed without becoming a clich'e. This side is masterpiece of skilled playing, energetic frenzy and fautless timing that captivates all that a live album should, putting most albums of this style to shame. If your bored with the blues and seek something a bit harder, with a melodic edge and a deep thinking flavour, this album is a must.

As one who loved the epic 60's and 70's rock tracks (EC, Jimmy Page, Quicksilver etc.), I found this as part of putting back together the old long-lost record collection. It is a superb album, primarily for the guitar work of, I believe, Martin Pugh, especially on "Riding on the L & N", but also because-of the wide variety of really good sounds. I am no technical expert, and of course recognise that music is strictly a personal thing, but to anyone either of that era, or into raw but fine guitar work from a tight outfit, typical of those bands who weren't megastars, but who toured the uni/college circuit/european successfully, I would commend this as an absolute classic.

Steamhammer were a late 60's college and pub circuit band with a cult following and their music has an enduring and haunting quality. Their live performance at the Black Prince in Bexley was a revelation. A very tight band with excellent rhythm chord progressions and distinctive vocals from man mountain Kieran White who I believe went on to join jazz fusion band Nucleus. Lead guitarist Martin Pugh should have become a rock icon - obviously influenced by Paul Kossoff but wringing sustain and tension from a Les Paul with his own fluid style. After Steamhammer he played briefly with Keith Relf post Renaissance then sadly disappeared from the music scene. Free meets Gandalf, shares a pipe of ganja in the Inn at Bree then conjures up some kickass boogie. Buy it, play it loud and savour the magic.

I first saw this band nearly 40 years ago. At that time I had never heard of them and went on recommendation from my brother. I have to say it was one of the best gigs I have ever experienced. I bought the LP but over the years, after which must be hundreds of plays the clicks from the numerous scratches spoilt the listening pleasure. I was gob-smacked to see Mountains was available on CD. This is one of my top 5 CDs of all time.

Got everything this fabulous band ever done, but this album exceeds everything.
It is utterly brilliant, musicianship etc!
Walking down the road is one of the best racks you'll ever hear in your life!
Do yourself a favour and treat your ears to all four albums.
They'll knock your socks off!

Beautiful album. Found these guys at the recommendation of GRAVEYARD who cite them as a massive influence. Can't believe I've gone so long without hearing them. Subtle yet powerful. Splendid!
