West's voice is in fine form and the guitar playing is of the highest quality.
I would like to end with a personal message if I may which is to wish the big man all the best and get well soon.
I can still recall visiting Bruce's record store in Rose Street, Edinburgh a few years before the concert and hearing that unmistakable tone. We were shown the LP cover, listened a little longer, and came out of the shop with Mountain Climbing. A little later Nantucket Sleighride was released; to this day this is one of a few albums where every track is a killer.
Thank you Leslie for nearly forty years of joy!
The new album contains great blues, rock and even pop. My favourites, so far, are Third Degree and Love You Forever.
Music like this makes the rain glisten and your personal problems manageable!!!
I have been a Leslie West fan ever since I heard a friend's copy of his debut album "Mountain". Even though the sound & production left a lot to be desired, I still swapped my Track records Hendrix album "Axis: Bold As Love" for it! That is worth some money! The point is I like Leslie West as a singer/guitarist more than Jimi the god and, even though he says "Don't call me Legend", he surely must be.
I was lucky enough to speak to him & Corky Laing after a gig in Sheffield when they had Stray supporting them and found them both to be funny and humble.
I have almost all of Leslie West's & Mountain's back catalogue (I don't see the point of purchasing all of the repetitive albums like the "official bootleg series") but, without doubt, this latest album is breathtakingly superb.
I like each and every track here but, like one or two reviewers before me, don't like or understand the final track "I Don't Know (The Beetlejuice Song)", other than it's Leslie's way of "having a laugh".
All in all though, 11 great tracks out of 12 can't be bad can it?
I say buy it, love it and search out other great Leslie West albums like "Got Blooze" and "Guitarded", West Bruce & Laing's "Why Doncha" and the vastly underrated Mountain albums "Flowers of Evil" and "Avalanche".
As for the music here, it is another great big slice of electric guitar (standard and slide) and acoustic guitar too to get your feet tapping. The opener (and not very PC) Another Drink For The Road gets the album underway with a heavy rocking riff and Leslie attacking the vocal duties as only he knows how and this pretty much sets the standard for the album with Mudflap Momma coming roaring on after.
To The Moon seems to take us back in time in terms of the sound and then we come to my personal favourite Standing On Higher Ground written by Mr Gibbons and played with the same lilt as ZZ Top, with Gibbons and West exchanging fire with Leslie giving his vocal all -truly great music delivered with the usual bump 'n grind.
There are, however, two quibbles
1) The Beetlejuice Song should NOT have appeared - it's
inclusion really should make this a 4.75 star rating
2) My album copy shows My Gravity and The Party's Over on the sleeve and within the liner notes but on my car screen it shows as You & Me and Turn Out The Lights...not really sure why, but did cause some confusion at first!Read more ›
