As a musician and front man, Leslie West was impossible to ignore. At his peak, he weighed in at a gargantuan 320 lbs, and his musical skills and burly, raw-throated vocal style were of a similar gravitas. His weight didn’t stop him from becoming a musician greatly respected by his peers, or from fronting Mountain, a fearsome rock combo that made an extremely successful noise in the early seventies.
This compilation features hits by Mountain and cover versions of hits for amongst others, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Cream, and Steppenwolf (check out their amazing interpretation of ‘Born to Be
Wild’ on this collection). Born out of the 60s musical explosion, they created one of the most recognised Rock tunes of all time with ‘Mississippi Queen’.
