Track of the Week: “Mississippi Queen” by Mountain
September 21, 2011 6 Comments
Thanks to an old friend of mine, I was informed that Leslie West of Mississippi Queen released a new album, Unusual Suspects, yesterday (September 20th). Several of the tracks on the album are killer, especially, “Mudflap Mama.”
As good as the new songs are, when I think of Leslie West I think of Mountain, West’s hit-making band from the 70’s. And when I think of Mountain, I think of the enormous guitar tone in their hit song “Mississippi Queen.” Enjoy.
