Editorial Reviews

Live performances were where Mountain always shone, and this document of some of their concert fare shows how they took a rather ordinary song and expanded it with lots of jamming and improvising. The side-long (on vinyl) "Nantucket Sleighride" does show signs of the excess that would plague the band for the rest of its career. A fair example of Mountain live. ~ James Chrispell, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars Why You Need to Buy This CD January 14, 2000
By T Beezy
Format:Audio CD
If you are any sort of Mountain fan (Like I Am) You Need to Buy This CD. I Put off getting it for a while because, frankly it is kind of expensive & it only has four songs on it. But trust me, YOU WANT TO BUY THIS. The CD Starts off with a kickin' version of "Long Red", if you've ever heard the album version you probably think of this song as a pretty litte piece of ear candy, but not here, it thumps harder than the studio recording of "Mississippi Queen". Next is "Waiting to Take You Away", a pretty ballady thing that turns into a heavy guitar fest at the end (I like the mix on the version of this song that appears on "Over The Top" a little better though). Next is a ripping version of "Crossroader", i always thought the studio version of this could have been harder and I was right. They tear that baby up. Last is the 17:00 version of "Nantucket Sleighride". It is somewhat similar to the version on "Twin Peaks" but is a lot better in every respect. Steve Knights' keyboard solo is really cool (it sounds like he has a wah pedal hooked up to his keyboard) especially since he is the one member of the band who usually does not have a strong musical presence, here his playing is simply beautiful. To summarize, this album kicks mad a**, it's much better than their other live CD's (cause let's face it "Twin Peaks" is not really Mountain [it's Leslie & Felix with two session guys]& that new import live thing is just a really bad show) if you like Mountain, you'll love this CD. If you're a fan of real music, you'll like this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their Best All-Live Album September 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you want a full album's worth of Mountain in concert, this is the one to have. (See my review of "Twin Peaks".) It showcases the best of what it was that made Mountain as strong a concert attraction as a studio one in the original quartet's brief but memorable existence. "Long Red" (a track from Leslie West's solo exercise, "Mountain," of early 1969) leads off genially, but then the band gets down to serious business. West's "Waiting To Take You Away" pries open a hole for what would become in due course the power ballad and rounds it off with some pretty, spiky guitar playing. "Crossroader," as derivative a blues as can be found, gets a roaring take thanks to West's howling slide guitar and Felix Pappalardi's rumbling bass. The real treat, though, is an extended performance of "Nantucket Sleighride" which surges, ebbs, and pulls firmly into port with some of the band's loveliest and most ethereal playing. This was the last of four albums from the original working quartet; the ultimate verdict has to be that, though they made some lovely music and at their best fired a rare lyricism into what became heavy metal music, Mountain never quite lived up to their promise in the end. They did go on, of course, in a slightly new configuration a couple of years after the original band broke up, but it was far from the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the JAMS February 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
the 33 minute of Nantucket is a must have. The cd only has 4 songs on the album, but the live version of Crossroader is also a must have. Leslie's guitar playing is awesome, and corky and felix keep it going throughout the whole album. A must have for fellow mountain fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars All that Mountain was March 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This abbreviated gem (33 minutes, more or less) showcases all that Mountain was. Though it lacks some of their more recognized tunes (Mississippi Queen, of course, and the Woodstock numbers) it never the less manages to convey just about everything you need to know about the band. True fans will have other albums, but for the uninitiated, looking for a terrific example of good old fashioned bombastic power group rock, with a tasty jam as a bonus, this is a great place to start. Side 2 is taken up by a 17 minute wersion of Nantucket Sleighride, their epic whaling tune. Of all the version sof Sleighride, live or studio, this is my favorite. It avoids some of the excessive drag-outs of the 30+ minute version found elsewhere, while offering a very tasty extension of teh studio version, staying true to the feel of the original, while offering lots of room for teh various instrumentalists to stretch out. It even manages to "feature" the drummer prominently, without resorting to a strictly-drum solo. (After all, there's only so much yuou can do with 2 drum tones & a high hat!) The 3 shorter tunes (but averaging over 5 minutes each) on side 1 show off the power chord supergroup as well as MQ or anyything else, and at the same time give an accurate if too brief view of an early 70's rock concert (when it was just plain ROCK.) This is just after Cream, the era of Deep Purple, 10 Years After, and others whose joy was in teh playing, the rocking, before the whole scene turned into a race for stadium seats or outlandish outfits or a media conglomerate. The personnell are tops; without the shadow of Cream still hanging over them, Mountain would certainly have garnered a greater reputation as a supergroup. There was quite a resume' of previous and subsequent fame for most of the group. (In fact, there was even an intertwining with Cream, when West, Bruce, & Laing hooked up briefly later.) Overall, a truly satisfying heavy rock experience, highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Timeless Mountain" November 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes this CD only has four songs on it but it is Timeless Mountain for sure. Having been a musician and knowing Felix Pappalardi personally Mountain was a big inspiration to me as much as The Beatles were to many. The talent in this band is Mountainous.

I had been looking for this album on CD for years and when I saw it here at Amazon I didn't think twice I purchased it immediately. Savoring the tracks from the smooth melodic Long Red to the timeless Rock mastepiece Nantucket Sleighride with a rarely heard nicely done keyboard solo from Steve Knight.

Mountain's natural thick sound of Leslie West's rip roaring guitar chords and licks, Felix Pappalardi's bumble bee sounding bass, Steve knight's melodic keyboards and Corky Laing's thunder can all be heard live. This CD is truly Timeless Mountain.
