Background: Released in 1971, Nantucket Sleighride was the second studio album by Mountain.
The album reached #16 on the U.S. album charts and #43 in the UK.
Following the success of Climbing! and appearances at Woodstock and other outdoor festivals of the day, Mountain recorded more of the same for Nantucket Sleighride. The title track is a nice mixture of classical-leaning intertwined with moderate rock; both “Don’t Look Around” and “The Animal Trainer and the Toad” continue on the hard rock path so well-worn by this band. Not groundbreaking, but it is well worth listening to.
