Mountain - Mississippi Queen

A hard rock classic foreshadowing of what's to come in 70s. The opening guitar riff is still easily recognizable. Its rich, "meaty" sound, probably inspired by Led Zeppelin was very popular at the time. The song appeared in the recent movie "The Expendables" by Sylvester Stallone. Covered by Ozzy Osbourne in 2005 - in my opinion, he managed to retain the original "spirit" of the track, but made it slightly different, due to his unusual voice and Jerry Cantrells characteristic guitar playing. I think the original is often overlooked, but remains a leading example of early hard rock. Enjoy.
