Mountain: Leslie West (vocals, guitar); Steve Knight (keyboards); Felix Pappalardi (bass, background vocals); Corky Laing (drums).
Recorded at the Record Plant, New York, New York in 1971. Originally released on Windfall (5500). Includes liner notes by Corey Laing.
Following the success of Climbing! and appearances at Woodstock and other outdoor festivals of the day, Mountain recorded more of the same for Nantucket Sleighride. The title track is a nice mixture of classical-leaning intertwined with moderate rock; both "Don't Look Around" and "The Animal Trainer and the Toad" continue on the hard rock path so well-worn by this band. Not groundbreaking, but it is well worth listening to. ~ James Chrispell
