Mountain - Over The Top – German Import Double CD Set
Over The Top is an album by the American rock band Mountain. It was released in 1972 as their fifth studio album. Mountain was formed in 1969 and was known for their heavy and blues-infused rock sound.
“Over The Top” showcases Mountain’s signature style with a mix of hard-hitting rock tracks and bluesy numbers. The album features the powerful guitar work of Leslie West, the soulful vocals of Felix Pappalardi, and the tight rhythm section of bassist/vocalist Steve Knight and drummer Corky Laing.
Some notable tracks from “Over The Top” include the energetic opener “Never In My Life,” the bluesy “Theme From An Imaginary Western,” and the epic and riff-driven “Nantucket Sleighride.” The album also includes a cover of the popular song “For Yasgur’s Farm,” originally performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
“Over The Top” received positive reviews upon its release and further solidified Mountain’s reputation as a skilled rock band. It showcases their ability to blend heavy riffs, bluesy melodies, and powerful vocals into their distinctive sound.
While “Over The Top” may not have achieved the same commercial success as their previous album “Climbing!” (which featured the hit song “Mississippi Queen”), it remains a fan favorite and a solid representation of Mountain’s musical prowess.
Over The Top is a notable album in Mountain’s discography, capturing the band’s energetic and bluesy rock sound. It stands as a testament to their talent and influence in the rock music scene of the 1970s.
