Reply Theres a version with Jack Bruce too Reply Angels,tired angels, Don't turn around,Nantucket Sleighride and this song mean so much to me,together with One last cold kiss. Reply THAT SOLO!!!!! Reply lol his wife popped him right? Reply Corky Laing's Music Of Mountain coming to Woodstock Experience 2019 https://www.facebook.com/groups/544174772661962/ Reply I think of my dad when I hear this song. He was the son of Pioneer parents. Reply That B-3 throughout makes this tune. Saw them in 1968…..still love Mountain~Guitar solo should be in the top 10 // Reply Words can not describe just how gut wrenchingly great the leslie cab and keyboard (probably a B3 Hammond) sound along with Mr. Leslie West's guitar solos. A very underrated group of musicians with such an awesome sound. When it comes to guitar work less is definitely better. Thank you Felix and Leslie. Reply Bruce and Pappalardi. Both giants in my musical world. Add Chris Squire. RIP Reply KISS' "Goin' Blind" was inspired by this song. Reply Leslie West…funny down to earth guy. Stay in Good health sir. Met you at Guitar Center in N.Y.C. Reply As a lifetime musician and music fan, this song was a transformative moment in time. What a band. Reply Jack Bruce wrote this song. Mountain took it home. Great vocals, guitar, and drums. Still Jack Bruce was the angel that created something from nothing! Both versions give me a Woody towards life! Reply Jesus H. Christ. Every *&^% note on that solo is etched in heaven. PERFECT. Reply . Reply Great song by a very underrated band, I only found out about MOUNTAIN when D.C.3 covered this song on "The Blasting Concept Vol.2" compilation on SST Records back in 1986. Reply i was playing this over 40 years ago. Reply I know it's a little nostalgic to say this was the best era for music, but its absolutely true. The artists had more freedom to create and express, and fit 7 different concepts on one album, or tell a whole story. So glad I grew up in the 60s and 70s! Reply Husband account…I was shocked he'd never heard this until last week when I had him listen Reply Leslie West! Reply WHATS WRONG WITCH YOU ? YOU DON'T USE GROUPON ? NOW WE GET 2 COMMERCIALS INSTEAD OF ONE, WHAT IS NEXT 3 COMMERCIALS , THEN 4 ???? Reply Was just reading that Michael Schenker loves this song.Not really the kind of thing I am into but Leslie West doeshave a good feel for the right notes and vibrato. Reply thanks.Jack….felix…and.of.course…LESLIE Reply Saw him 11 years ago in a small venue in Ridgefield CT for my son's 16th birthday. To this day he says it was his BEST birthday.. Reply Mississippi Queens is Mountain's claim to fame, but "Theme from an Imaginary Western" is an excellent tune, perhaps their best, and "Nantucket Sleigh Ride" is also excellent Reply Just heard this song on DEEPTRACKS Sirius in my jeep while coming back from the Gym. Of course my stereo was set at 11 vibrating the mirror as I sang along. Reply Mountain should be up there with Sabbath and Zeppelin as forefathers of metal. Leslie West's guitar was so damn heavy Reply Always let this play after "Mississippi Queen". Reply I,grew,up,in long,island, NYC.we,would, listen to this, on,the way to junior, high, school, it,still, sounds amazing, in,2019,Leslie, Wests,,tone,on,guitar, is,so,good, a lot,of,guitar, player's, to,this, day, really, admire,it,it,sounds, amazing, brings back, good, memories,, thanks Reply breathtaking stunning and beautiful beyond words prob the best deep depthy solo guitar work and tones ever recorded wtf ? like god is speaking through them as they play kh Reply Felix with his amazing voice😋 Reply Felix had a great voice didn't he? Reply I love Claudina Reply A masterpiece!! Saw Mountain many times at Fillmore East. Brings back the best of times $3.50 for tix Crazy!!! Reply Felix totally killed it. Leslie West brought it home. Thank you Jack Bruce, for writing it! Reply The greatest guitar solo of all time. He made the guitar speak, moan, cry, and wail; each note a masterpiece. Highest regard for Leslie Weinstein and Jack Bruce. Reply Funny my record, same Mountain LP, has a lot of fuzz box in it and it's a lot better. Reply Capital in Portchester,and Ted Rail Rock bar in Nanuet. great shows, Reply 4 EVER Music. Reply Holy bleep, I remember this song. This is Cream's cousin. I think they nailed this, especially Leslie! Felix sang it perfect too! Reply haven't heard this in year's Good Song!!!! Reply great great great great Reply Simply bloody brilliant!… Reply https://bestclassicbands.com/felix-pappalardi-killed-4-17-177/ Reply It's my ALL TIME FAVORITE song by Mountain. The lyrics to that song are… NOT to mention Leslie West's guitar. Why isn't it played on "classic rock" stations? Reply So great and unique for its time. Great memories on this one. Stunning lead work as well. Reply I saw Mountain many times in the 1969-1972 era. This song would always make me cry. It reminds me of the music of Scotland That I grew up with. Really.
