Certain to Cause An Avalanche,
This review is from: Super Hits (Audio CD)
Formed in 1969,Mountain were led by the colossal talents of Leslie West,a rather large chap himself.This budget priced compact disc serves as an excellent introduction to the uninitiated. From the opening track Mississipi Queen,one of their biggest stateside hits,this disc truely rocks with a capital R .There is superb cover of Theme From An Imaginary Western,a Jack Bruce number,which so impressed him that he later joined the band , remember (West,Bruce & Laing).The Collection also includes Nantucket Sleighride, a wonderful rock ballad that many will recall was used as the theme to ITV's current affairs programme 'The World At One.' Super Hits contains ten of the best tracks from Mountain's back catalogue .Go on treat youself, give it a listen but beware Mountain are certain to cause an avalanche.
