Mountain - Climbing CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-SBMK723620.2
Mountain was a New York trio of hard rockers who formed during the first generation of proto-metal and featured a dense, blues-based sound performed by Leslie West (guitar & vocals), Felix Pappalardi (bass & vocals - who, although he was a musician first, had made his name as the producer of Cream) and Corky Laing (drums). This was their first album.

"Often billed as a junior-league version of Cream, Climbing!, Mountain's debut, had a lot of things going for it as well. Indeed, West was a changed man from the moment he saw Clapton play, and Pappalardi was able to help him achieve the exact same tone Clapton employed on Disraeli Gears. The hit off Climbing!, "Mississippi Queen" is a boogie classic, and it paved the way for countless imitators such as J. Geils Band, Foghat, and others. There are a lot of other great tracks here, such as "Never in My Life," which was an FM radio staple at the time."-All Music Guide
