Leslie West is probably best known for his work with Mountain but as a solo artist he continued his career during breaks from Mountain in the mid 70s. The Leslie West Band was the band that West formed to play solo concerts in order to promote his solo album The Great Fatsby. The band included former Mountain drummer Corky Laing and also future Foreigner guitarist and song writer Mick Jones.
Jones wrote one of the more popular songs on the album “Singapore Sling” and also co-wrote another seven of the ten tracks on the album with Corky Laing and Leslie West. The album also includes two covers, the first a rocked up version of The Beatles song “Dear Prudence” and the second a cover of the Mann Weil song “We Gotta Get Outta This Place” a song made famous by The Animals.
This is a limited edition on purple vinyl.
