The 2014 Martin Popoff short ebook about the making of the Mountain album, Nantucket Sleighride.
Was it Mountain or was it Cactus that was called America’s Led Zeppelin? Coulda applied to either, but I know that in some circles, Mountain is considered America’s first heavy metal band. So we come to celebrate the band’s murky opus of the deep Nantucket Sleighride, a quaker and shaker for the opening days of 1971 to be sure. Come gather around loud rock legends Leslie West and Corky Laing as they rue the day their rock brother Felix Pappalardi took a bullet. Note: this is an expanded version of a chapter from Ye Olde Metal: 1968 To 1972, so if you have that book, you have most of this rock document.
