MOUNTAIN: Live At The Capitol Theater 1973

"The performances contained on the Mountain Bootleg Series are drawn from various stages of the bands career from the very early years when the band first formed through to recent gigs undertaken by the band. All the performances come from the personal archives of both Leslie West and Corky Laing and whilst some of the performances are not sonically perfect the quality of the performances are never in question and as Corky Laing says "Some of the performances are real interesting". I couldn't have said it better myself.

This recording comes from a period when Mountain had re formed once again and the core trio of Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi and Corky Laing reunited from a series of successful dates and an album entitled Avalanche. This reunion however was to be shortlived and the band once again fragmented with West going on to make his solo album the Great Fatsby and Laing and Pappalrdi returning to sessions and production respectively.

This album therefore comes from an interesting and rarely heard period in the bands history and will be of interest to the still substantial Mountain Fan base. This recording as with the other recordings in the series comes from the tape archives of Leslie West and Corky Laing and has been re-mastered for release."
