Mountain's 1969 version of Theme For An Imaginary Western that appears on the Mountain Climbing album is my favourite version which is a full band version with nice guitar and guitar solo from Leslie West. Classic rock indeed.

Jack Bruce performs the song solo and is a piano heavy version on his Songs For A Taylor record from 1969.

These were the album cover specialist. Never were heavily commercial... but are an integral cog in the wheel of Rock.
Mountain covered this also - but this version of Jack Bruce's tune is excellent.

Love all mentioned versions of that song, but for me the Colosseum version is my favourite

Been getting into some early 1970s British rock/progressive rock bands lately and one I am interested in at the moment is WARHORSE who released two studio albums WARHORSE 1971 & RED SEA 1972 both originally appeared on vinyl but were both subsequently reissued in the 2000s on cd with both cds appearing on Angel Air cds.

Also I picked up a early WILD TURKEY cd from 1971 yesterday.

ex-Jethro Tull and founding member of Wild Turkey the late Glen Cornick in 1971.

Is there a 'one album only' thread on here folks?
Amid the storms here, bin' flicking thru' my 70s stuffy stuff-- think these hailed from out Baltimore way....only did one LP... 180g delight.
Many years later a CD of studio outtakes was released-- but didn't hit the spot.
Solid album from these.
