Crossroader: Anthology 1970 - 1974 = 2 CD = (CD)
DELUXE REMASTERED 2CD ANTHOLOGY OF MOUNTAIN's CLASSIC RECORDINGS MADE BETWEEN 1970 & 1974 Formed in 1969 by guitarist Leslie West and bass player and Cream producer Felix Pappalardi, Mountain also initially comprised a line-up that featured Steve Knight (Keyboards) and N.D. Smart (Drums). Prior to securing a recording contract, the band made an impressive impact at the Woodstock Festival in August of that year. Soon after this appearance N.D. Smart was replaced on drums by Corky Laing and Mountain began their recording career with their debut album "CLIMBING", issued in March 1970. Featuring such classic tracks as 'Mississippi Queen', 'For Yasgur's Farm' and a cover of Jack Bruce's 'Theme from an Imaginary Western', Mountain established their hallmark sound of powerful rock combined with a more subtle side. "NANTUCKET SLEIGHRIDE" issued in January 1971 was even more polished, featuring the infamous title track along with 'Don't Look Around' and 'You Can't Get Away'. Later that year "FLOWERS OF EVIL" continued the pattern of success by featuring studio material such as 'Crossroader' and the album's title track along with a side of live recordings. The live side of the band, a notable attraction on the concert stage, was also represented with the album "LIVE (The Road Goes Ever On)". Following a hiatus (during which time LESLIE WEST and CORKY LAING teamed up with JACK BRUCE in WEST, BRUCE & LAING), Mountain reformed with WEST and PAPPALARDI joined by keyboard player ROBERT MANN and drummer ALLAN SCHWARTZBERG, recording the mighty "TWIN PEAKS" live album in Japan in August 1973. Mountain's final studio offering of the 70s was the album "AVALANCHE" which saw CORKY LAING return to the band. With the death of FELIX PAPPALARDI in 1983, LESLIE WEST would continue to resurrect MOUNTAIN in various guises, but the recordings made between 1970 and 1974 remain the finest work under the MOUNTAIN name. This anthology is the most concise collection of MOUNTAIN's recordings to date and features the best of the band's work both in the recording studio and in concert.
