4.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation great price., 12 May 2008
This review is from: The Very Best Of Mountain (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic way to discover Mountain. Almost all of the classic tracks are here the only exception being the live versions which are superior in many case's. Mountain had a very large reputation as hard rock pioneers and this is truly deserved. Les West is a fantastic guitarist with a soulful voice. Felix is one of the top ten bass guitarist of his generation almost as skilled as Jack Bruce and as consistent a writer. Corky Lang is a Canadian Ginger Baker and Knight certainly tickles the ivories with skill and passion. This compilation brings together most of the best cuts from the bands studio albums and is remarkable value for money. Mountain are often compered with Cream, however Cream had aspirations to become pop stars and wrote some very weak tracks as a result at times. Mountain did not sell out to the same extent and the music is stronger. Like Cream Mountain were at their very best live, and this is one area in which this record doesn't do them justice. However for a budget collection this cd represents great value. Buy this and the Road goes on forever together, and you will have a pretty decent overview of this important hard rock group. Modern music doesnt come close to Mountain at their peak and very few bands of the 70's could compete with this true super-group. If you like the music of bands like Cream, Zeppelin and the Who chances are you will love Mountain.
I have given this comp only 4 stars but that is because it has not got any of the live recordings of Mountain, rather than as a reflection of the music the cd contains which truly deserves all 5 Stars.
