Fire On The Mountain
Sept. 16, 1978
I don't usually write more than 3 words, but this deserves more than I wrote before. It comes out of the most definitive Ollin as Phil leads the way into Fire. It has a super slow groove in the beginning prior to the first verse. The first Jam is fine, but the second has grit/power as Phil is thumping fast and hard. Not to mention that the whole band is firing. I recommend the release as the mix is perfect as you can hear each member individually and as a whole. The Jam stops on a dime as they make their way to the third verse. The third Jam is smoked and then it has the cool transition to IKO. Few things to mention: This version is like no other or even close as it has a unique groove that I can't explain. Jerry's vocal are perfect. It's definitive for me as a stand alone and the Ollin>Fire>Iko is just some of the most off the hook stuff. I know this version has 16 votes, but If you haven't listened to this...you are seriously missing the fuckin boat.
