Blue Mountain Eagle was a short-lived American psychedelic/acid rock group that evolved out of New Buffalo Springfield. This is their lone album recorded in December of 1969 for Atlantic/Atco Records, which they were personally signed to by label founder Ahmet Ertegun. The album comes on like a breath of fresh mountain air, boasting traces of influence from the old Springfield but a sound all unto its own. The band’s vocal harmonies and tight songwriting mesh beautifully with their heavy Pacific Coast sound. Many of the tunes here feature lengthy instrumental passages showcasing Bob Jones’ scorching electric guitar work, though no one song surpasses the five minute mark. Rhino Records have re-issued this long out-of-print gem on 180g vinyl as a Limited Edition for RSD 2015.
