5.0 out of 5 stars Still Does It, 18 April 2006

This review is from: Mountain (Audio CD)
I bought this album when it first appeared on vinyl in the very late sixties (and it took a degree of effort in those days to buy anything out of the mainstream - not like today where we can surf the web etc, etc!)
This album was the first album put out by Leslie with help on the desk (and songwriting, bass playing and singing too)from Felix Papallardi. These two went on to collaborate quite extensively as the core of Mountain, but this album shows quite clearly what was to come with Leslie using his gravel vocals to the max!
Because of the fact that "pop" singles were just 2-3 minute "tunes" back in these days, each song fits this time frame neatly - but this is no detraction as Leslie's voice and guitar work are kept under strict control to produce an album varied in it's musical styles, with country, folk and rock all intertwined to make a wonderful opener for anyone who likes late 60's/early 70's rock styles or, of course, anyone who likes Mountain!
Standout tracks are Blood Of The Sun, Long Red, Blind Man, Look To The Wind and, of course, This Wheel's On Fire - sung as it should be, with fire and passion!
A great album and certainly a great place to start if you are new to Leslie's work.
Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Leslie West - and a great album, too., 26 May 2006

This review is from: Mountain (Audio CD)
With some CD's not giving the original publication date of the album, this being one case in point, I'm pretty sure this was released prior to Mountain the band's Woodstock appearance and continuing fame from there onward. Somehow, probably due to being a guitar freak, I'd heard of the name Leslie West, and had the vinyl copy of this album on the Windfall label on import. But no matter, if you like Leslie West's playing and the Mountain sound, then you will enjoy this. If what I have said above is correct, they took Blood Of The Sun and Dreams Of Milk And Honey onward with them into Mountain the band; this, you see, is Mountain the album with Leslie as the artiste. And every track is great and there are none you can argue are a bit second class, because they're straight down the line Mountain as you know and love them. If forced to pick out one favourite, it would be Look To The Wind, which has the toneality of Leslie's voice more plaintive and with plenty of feeling. But it's one of those tracks you fall in love with easily. Not enough to make you skip through the tracks to get to, but a nice highlight at a point on the album when you need a track with thoughtful meaningful lyrics. This Wheel's on Fire just about everyone knows and is the only cover version here. Great early Leslie West, who takes care of guitar and vocals, with Felix Pappalardi on bass and keyborads, and N D Smart II on drums. Go for it!
