Mountain : Over The Top



Mountain is an American Hard Rock band that formed in Long Island, New York in 1969. Originally comprising vocalist and guitarist Leslie West, bassist/vocalist Felix Pappalardi, keyboardist Steve Knight and drummer N. D. Smart, the band broke up in 1972 and has reunited frequently since 1973, remaining active today.

Over the Top is right. Two discs of Mountain, complete with all the AOR hits, unreleased tracks, two newly recorded songs, a nearly six-minute guitar solo, and a 20-minute jam is a bit much for anyone but the most devoted Leslie West fans, yet the number of rarities and classy packaging make the set a necessary item for the dedicated.

In early 1969 Leslie West, formerly of the Long Island R&B band The Vagrants, put together a band, Leslie West Mountain (a reference to his then-large size), with Norman Landsberg (keyboards, bass) and Ken Janick (drums) and began playing concerts.

Right around this time, former Cream collaborator Felix Pappalardi expressed an interest in producing West's work.The resulting solo album by Leslie West, Mountain, featured Pappalardi, Landsberg and former Remains drummer N.D. Smart.

Soon after Woodstock, Smart was replaced by Canadian Laurence "Corky" Laing, who was the drummer on the classic Climbing!, which was released in March 1970. It led off with what became the band's signature song, "Mississippi Queen", which reached #21 in the Billboard Hot 100, and was featured in the 1971 cult film Vanishing Point, while the album reached #17 in the Billboard Top 200. Mountain began a hectic touring schedule in the middle of which they recorded a follow-up album, Nantucket Sleighride, released in January 1971.

Taunta / Nantucket Sleighride  Lyrics



Goodbye, little Robin-Marie,
Don't try, followin' me.
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie,
'Cause you know, I'm comin' home soon.

My ship's leavin' on three year tour,
Next tide, will take us from shore.
Wind-laced, gather in sail and spray,
On a search, for the mighty sperm whale.


Fly your willow branches,
Wrap your body 'round my soul,
Lay down your reeds an' drums on my soft sheets,
There are years behind us reaching,
To the place where hearts are beating,
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.

Starbuck's sharpenin' his harpoon,
The Black man's playin' his tune,
An old salt's sleepin' his watch away,
He'll be drunk again, before noon.


Three years, sailin' on bended knee,
We found, no whales in the sea,
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie,
'Cause we'll be, in sight of land soon.

Fly your willow branches,
Wrap your body 'round my soul,
Lay down your reeds an' drums on my soft sheets,
There are years behind us reaching,
To the place where hearts are beating,

And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.

Γιουροβίζιον 2014


( Και μην τολμήσετε να το πάρετε σαν Ομοφοβικό Post εσείς οι ανεγκέφαλοι 
δήθεν υποστηριχτές των Gay 
που λυσσάξατε στα κανάλια να προασπίζετε τη διαφορετικότητα ενός ανθρώπου , 
γιατί δεν υπάρχει διαφορετικότητα . 
Τα πάντα είναι θέμα σεξουαλικού προσανατολισμού όταν κάποιος είναι ενήλικας . 
Τα πάντα είναι θέμα ελευθερης έκφρασης και προσωπικής επιλογής !!!
Εάν φοβάσαι το κράξιμο , το θάβεις , το κρύβεις και το ξεχνάς πάνω στο στρώμα με τον - την σύντροφό σου όταν κάνετε έρωτα .
Εάν δε φοβάσαι την ρατσιστική κατακραυγή μιάς κομπλεξικής Ανώμαλης κοινωνίας , τότε το φωνάζεις με δυνατή φωνή
και θα παλεύεις μιά ζωή να αποδείξεις ΤΙ ?

Στην οικογένειά σου που δυσκολεύεται να σε αποδεχτεί με τα χίλια ζόρια ?
Στη μάννα σου που πρώτη σε αγαπάει , είσαι παιδί της ,
ή στον Straight μπαμπά σου , που θα ήταν περήφανος εάν ο γιός του
θα μεταμορφωθει σ' έναν Αρσενικό Γαμήκουλα του στυλ James Bond ?

Η ΚΟΝΤΣΙΤΑ  ΛΙΓΟ  ΠΡΙΝ  ΤΗ  ΓΙΟΥΡΟΒΙΖΙΟΝ  ΜΕ  ΤΟΝ  ΠΜΕΥΜΑΤΙΚΟ  ΤΗΣ







Δεν έχουμε ανάγκη από ένα μουσάτο καρακιτσαριό να μας δώσει μαθήματα περί ελευθερίας
της Σεξουαλικότητας , περί  του διαφορετικού ( Διαφορετικοί είμαστε όλοι ρε καραγκιόζηδες ) , περί του χρώματος του δέρματός μας , περί των Πιστεύω της Θρησκείας μας , περί των διαφορετικών πολιτικών πεποιθήσεών μας ( Οταν αυτές δε βλάπτουν τους συνανθρώπους μας ) .

Τα δήθεν δάκρυα της Κοντσίτας όταν έπαιρνε το ένα δωδεκάρι μετά το άλλο και η υποδοχή της στο αεροδρόμιο της χώρας της , με αφήνουν παγερά αδιάφορο .

Τέχνη σημαίνει να προάγεις τον Πολιτισμό κι όχι ένα έξυπνο τέχνασμα καμουφλαρισμένο πίσω από μία δήθεν σεξουαλική επανάσταση .
Εως ότου να ξεχάσουμε την Κοντσίτα , εκείνη θα έχει βγάλει τόσα πολλά εκατομμύρια από την γκροτέσκα φιγούρα που πλασσάρισε με τόση εξυπνάδα , ώστε μετά από λίγα χρόνια θα ζει ζάμπλουτη σε μιά βιλάρα , και θα έχει ξυρίσει όχι μόνο τα μούσια της , αλλά θα έχει κάνει και τις τρίχες από τ' @ρχ.... της πλεξούδες στην υγειά των κορόϊδων .

O.S.T : Faraway So Close 1993

Director Wim Wenders assembled a modern rock Who's Who for this soundtrack, which includes tracks by U2 (both of which also turn up on their Zooropa album), Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Jane Siberry, and Laurie Anderson. The result is a moody, evocative set that works with the film and as a consistent collection of contemporary songs.


(Almost half of the album is given over to selections from Laurent Pettitgand's low-key score.)
(Review by William Ruhlmann)




Faraway, So Close! (German: In weiter Ferne, so nah!) is a 1993 film by German director Wim Wenders.The film is a sequel to Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire.
Cassiel and Raphaella, two angels, observe the busy life of reunited Berlin. Due to their divine origin, they can hear the thoughts of the people around them, and try to console a dying man.

THE WANDERER - U2 with Johnny Cash
(Written by U2/Lyrics by Bono)


I went out walking
Through streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones
Saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking
Under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn
And the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye
Yeah I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering

I went drifting
Through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in
I stopped outside a church house
Where the citizens like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it

I went out riding
Down that old eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

I went with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you

I went out there
In search of experience
To taste and to touch
And to feel as much
As a man can
Before he repents

I went out searching
Looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his father's right hand
I went out walking
With a bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one
Now Jesus, don't you wait up
Jesus, I'll be home soon
Yeah I went out for the papers
Told her I'd be back by noon

Yeah I left with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you

Yeah I left with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
