Format: Audio CD
If you've only heard "Nantucket Sleighride" or "Flowers of Evil", or never heard Mountain at all, listen again (preferably, as usual, without Mother). The first of the Cream soundalike bands, but with a harder edge, and boasting Cream's producer, Felix Pappalardi, on bass and Leslie West and Corky Laing, who later teamed up with Jack Bruce on the ear-pounding "Why Dontcha", Mountain is a band not to be missed. Here you have the first five albums by the band in its heyday for the same price as one full-priced newly produced CD by such as Robbing Twitliams or Lady BaaBaa, or, if you measure your money in alcohol, about five pints of beer. Remastered too and with bonus live tracks here and there. Mississippi Queen, Crossroader, Tired Angels, Nantucket Sleighride, Blood of the Sun and loads more. Don't muck about: buy it. (But - here's your risk assessment - when you have, do be careful in transit as the individual CDs in their miniaturised covers easily slip out of the larger case).

Oh the memories,i never heard the "Climbing" album until about three years after its release,it still sounds fuzzy,but with" Mississippi queen" and "Theme from an imaginary western" included its sounds reflect the times well.
I remember i was a young schoolboy and was shopping in Harlequin records at the top of the Haymarket in Londons west end,when i saw "Nantucket sleighride" in the racks,its stunning cover on full display,i bought it,took it home,and played it full blast,much to my neighbours disdain,it still sounds great today.
"Flowers of evil " followed much the same course as did the live "Twin peaks"the fifth album is "Avalanche" which i never heard until now.
Buy this set!!!

crunching guitar riffs throughout,just play as loud as you can the quality is there through out all five cd's, my favorite is nantucket sleighride as well as the title track it has some great rockers on this album, also it has the loveley lady on the cd which is my favorite mountain track,or is it theme from a imageinery western

I wasn't even born when Mountain were around but I love good guitar work and Leslie west is an excellent player, really tasty bends in his lead playing, again simillar to montrose, you can hear were van halen got their inspiration from, alot of this reminds me of a heavier version of Cream. Standouts for me include Mississippi queen, Don't look around, Nantucket Sleigh ride,Flowers of Evil, One Last Cold Kiss, and the Leslie west guitar workout Dream Sequence. 8/10 as there are a few week cuts but can't complain when you've only paid about 2.00 for each of the 5 cd's. Recommended, especially if you like Cream, Zeppelin etc.

Worthwhile purchase. Solid mainstream hard rock early material from these underrated exponents of the rock music world. Great to hear again.

Format: Audio CD
Post Script when I published this list the track listings were absent)
These sets are a great way of getting a great collection of music together.

For the price of one full price CD you get 5.
The great thing about these collections is that the albums are not the originals BUT are remastered, often with a superior sound and have extra tracks.
So even if you have a couple of the Cds already the etra tracks makes the purchase worthwhile.
At the time of writing there was no track listing.
It is important, if you already have a Mountain Cd to compare the tracks with the new track listing to see if you are in fact getting extra tracks.
The Cds are housed in a sturdy cardboard box about the width of a double jewel case (great for storage) and the LP covers are relicated in as cheap as chips cardboard which some hate- I for one like each to their own
>5 CDs worth of really great music in 5 little cardboard slipcases make this a really attractive package...

The now redundant track list is

Thought the actual track listing would be of interest,

If you bought the albums 40 years ago, this box set is a convenient way of listening to the music without all the messing about that goes with LPs. If you want to find out what Mountain was all about, never having heard of the band before, this is a cheap introduction. And if you don't like the sound, you can always give the set to someone else as a Xmas present. So it's a no-lose proposition. Just don't expect to read what's printed on the CD sleeves without a real struggle!

These CDs are a bit of a bargain at the price I paid. Another group that I only heard bits and pieces of, in the 70's, and thought it was worth trying these for the money. There is a lot of good stuff here and excellent musicianship, if you like rock music.
