I'm listening out for the keyboards - so supportive of the rest of the team, generally so understated and so right.


Fairly obvious question - it is Leslie W singing on 'Nantucket Sleighride' and 'One Last Cold Kiss', right?

Yes that is Alaska - The highest mountain aka Denali (also known by its pathetic Mt McKinley).
Note this picture is from Peter's Hills which you can only reach by going on 40 miles of dirt roads and then walking another few miles.

"I was young and impatient at the time, and it was hard to learn the thing. It was more than your average classic rock blues song. Now I love playing it and I finish all my shows with it. Felix sang it originally. Sometimes I think of him. I never think of Gail.” - Leslie West

I always assumed LW sang all the Mountain vocals.

I shall ask The Skipper when he resurfaces...

This is just a truly exciting track.

It is a cliché, but worth saying they really don't make 'em like this any more.

More's the pity!
