One of the heaviest and loudest U.S. guitar bands of the early Seventies, MOUNTAIN starred Leslie West (guitar, vocals), Felix Pappalardi (bass and vocals) and Corky Laing (drums). Pappalardi had been Eric Clapton"s American producer and the spirit of CREAM can be heard on this 1971 album. The Mountain men climbed to peaks of excitement with such heady performances as "Don"t Look Around" and "The Great Train Robbery" and the CD boasts three bonus tracks - "Roll Over Beethoven", "Crossroader" and the "live" track "Travellin" In The Dark".
Travellin' In The Dark (To E.M.P.) (Live, previously unreleased) Bonus
The title track is a nice mixture of classical-leaning intertwined with moderate rock; both "Don't Look Around" and "The Animal Trainer and the Toad" continue on the hard rock path so well-worn by this band. - All Music3/5
