Mountain Nantucket Sleighride on Limited Edition Colored 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso / Pressed at RTI
Mountain is one of those rare bands that can be credited with forging a style and sound that would for ever change the face of rock music. The combination of Leslie' West's unique tone and feel, Felix Pappalardi's studio production skills, Corky Laing's powerful double bass drumming and Steve Knight's keyboard textures, produced some of the best and most memorable rock tunes of all time including "Mississippi Queen," "Nantucket Sleighride," "Theme From an Imaginary Western," "Yasgur's Farm," "Never In My Life," "Blood of the Sun," and "Dreams of Milk and Honey."
After a blistering performance at Woodstock in 1969 and a great chart run with "Mississippi Queen" and their 1970 debut album Mountain Climbing!, the band roared back a year later with the stellar gold certified masterwork Nantucket Sleighride. In addition to the brilliant title track, the LP opens with one of their biggest hits "Don't Look Around," and is home to further fan favorites like " Taunta (Sammy's Tune)" and "The Animal Trainer and The Toad." Limited edition colored 180g vinyl pressing from Friday Music, mastered by Joe Reagoso and manufactured at RTI.
