Leslie West Soundcheck on 180g LP + Download
Soundcheck is the sixteenth solo album by legendary rock guitarist Leslie West who first gained worldwide recognition in 1969 as the guitarist and singer in the groundbreaking rock band Mountain. West's wholly unique sound, distinguished by beautifully melodic phrasing, his slow, wide vibrato, and a crushing guitar tone set the standard in the late-60s and early-70s for blues-rock guitar playing of the highest order.
For his new release, Leslie lays down some of his most inspired musical magic to date with the assistance of true rock royalty: the renown British guitarists Peter Frampton and Brian May, ex-Jeff Beck keyboard virtuoso Max Middleton, vocalist extraordinaire Bonnie Bramlett and the late great Cream bassist and longtime friend of Leslie's, Jack Bruce.
Soundcheck was co-produced and engineered by West's collaborator Mike 'Metal' Goldberg who he shared, "helped me get my sound down on tape as they used to say, and did an amazing job as he always does. "I'm so happy with the sound of this new record. The guitar sound we captured is fantastic, and my voice is feeling better than ever."
