Today on the LP Lounge, join Willie B for two classic albums, Redbone and Mountain.
Message from a Drum is the third album by Native American rock band Redbone released in 1971. It was released in Europe under the name The Witch Queen of New Orleans with the same track list and a different cover. The CD version released in the early 2000s has the European cover and title of the original LP and includes the single version of “Chant: 13th Hour” as a bonus track (the full version being from the second LP Potlatch).
The Best of Mountain is the first compilation by American hard rock band Mountain. It consists of material recorded throughout 1970-1971, culled from their first three LPs. On April 15, 2003, the album was remastered and reissued in an expanded edition with new liner notes and four bonus tracks, two of which are taken from Leslie West’s first solo album, 1969’s Felix Pappalardi-produced Mountain, the project which eventually led to the formation of the band.
