A “Mountain” of Heavy Sound

One of heavy metal’s little known pioneers, the Long Island hard rockers Mountain rose above many at rock’s biggest moment in the 60’s, Woodstock.

But peers know what’s what and that’s why folks like Johnny Ramone to John Fruciante of the Chili Peppers sung Mountain’s praises over the years.

If you ever play Guitar Hero 3, you’ll get the chance to shred on “Mississippi Queen” (which the Beastie Boys later sampled).

On this week’s Total Recall, Bob the Paper Guy takes you inside the strange world of Mountain, including a song a boat-towing whale who offers himself up as dinner.

Listen below!
