ON TOP came just a year after the release of Mountain's first greatest hits collection, 1973's BEST OF. It's a budget priced compilation with a more concise track listing. These 10 tracks will be well known to classic rock aficionados everywhere.
Guitarist Leslie West was one of the biggest guitar heroes of the early '70s, taking Eric Clapton's fluid blues riffs and turbocharging them with the energy and explosiveness of Led Zeppelin. One of rock radio's most frequently played tracks, "Mississippi Queen," is featured, as well as such metallic rockers as "Don't Look Around," "Never in My Life," and "Roll Over Beethoven," and more tranquil moments such as "Boys in the Band" and "Theme for an Imaginary Western."
