Windfall assembled this outstanding live document of the original version of the band Mountain following their breakup. The album features a couple of tracks from their landmark performance at the Woodstock festival and the epic centerpiece of the album, a majestic extended version of “Nantucket Sleighride.”
Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi, Corky Laing and Steve Knight were riding their first wave of success when these performances were documented. This version of the band could flat-out cook and the extended cuts show that they knew how to jam with a sense of power and dynamics. The performances were mastered from the original tapes by Vic Anesini and the liner notes by Ralph Chapman place the whole project in the proper perspective. The album is fleshed out by an extended bonus performance of “Stormy Monday” that was culled from another early seventies festival performance.
