Mountain’s third album from 1971 “Flowers of Evil” first side was studio with the second Live.
Wouldn’t have meant a thing, first, fifth, last. Leslie West from the start could blow the roof of any venue.
It still astonishes me that Mountain never ended up on film at Woodstock nor the album. Their performance on Dec. 31, 1970 was also a memorable performance at the Fillmore East.
I had to laugh when I read the wiki page on this album and it stated “First” live outing. Are you kidding me?
Woodstock 69′ 500,000. I’d say they had been in-front of an audience way before this performance. A gigantic one.
