Felix Pappalardi started his career in the early 60s as arranger and producer for folk acts like Tim Hardin, The Youngbloods, Joan Baez and Fred Neil. In 1967 he was asked to produce Cream’s classic album “Disraeli Gears”, co-writing “Strange Brew” with Eric Clapton.
In 1969, Pappalardi produced guitarist Leslie West’s first album “Mountain”. Pappalardi and West then formed heavy rock group Mountain, who had a succession of gold-selling albums between 1970 and 1974.
This fully annotated package features Felix’s only two solo albums, the first recorded in 1976 with Japanese hard rock band Creation (who had supported Mountain). “Don’t Worry Ma” was recorded in 1979 with top US session players Eric Gale, Chuck Rainey and Bernard Purdie.
