4.0 out of 5 stars Ex Mountain goes cover kerrazy
Ex Mountain and former fat man Leslie West make take up less space these days, but that hasn't stopped him bunging out some quality albums. And this top notch blues album is an absolute joy.

Aided and abetted by the legendary Aynsley Dunbar on drums, Leslie has come up with some unusual choices on this covers album. Yes, you get the well travelled "Blues Before...

1.0 out of 5 stars Wasted talent
What a pity rhat a talented and exciting guitar player is taking good blues songs and turning them into turgid and boring music. The voice is boring and the guitar playing even more so. Pity

Ex Mountain and former fat man Leslie West make take up less space these days, but that hasn't stopped him bunging out some quality albums. And this top notch blues album is an absolute joy.

Aided and abetted by the legendary Aynsley Dunbar on drums, Leslie has come up with some unusual choices on this covers album. Yes, you get the well travelled "Blues Before Sunrise", "Tore Down" etc, but he also dips into the Montrose, Free and Creedence catalogues for some rampant blues rock.

There isn't really a duff track on this album, just the primal howl of Leslie West and a hot, hot band. If you twisted my arm I'd probably pick "Four Day Creep" as the best, closely purusued by "Woman". If there was one track to get my skip finger working it'd be "Hit The Road, Jack", but it's a minor quibble.

A master class from a master musician.

Very pleasing to my old ear-holes this one!
A great choice of tracks to cover and all expertly portraying Leslie West's style, tenacity and hunger for the blues and it's younger cousin blues-rock.
I think I can say it's a long time since I've enjoyed all tracks on an album, even though it has a higher price than most cds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw West, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Me (MP3 Download)
Anyone a fan of leslie west in his mountain days will find this very different. It is raw blues but in a good way and some of the riffs are pure west. Some great old blues anthems and a couple of more contemporary tracks make this a good addition to any blues lovers collection.
