"Mountain" was the climax of 2007's "At The End Of Paths Taken" - an album we'll be revisiting in detail in a special edition in April. With the help of Michael Timmins and Alan Anton, we'll be tracing the development of the song through to its conclusion, employing a few rare recordings along the way.
Looking at how it has some of its sonic roots in The Beatles' "Revolution 9" and Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon", we'll cover how the song gradually mushroomed into the tour-de-force maelstrom that pulled all the threads of the album together.
