Throwback Concert: Mountain at Quinnipiac University 1971

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating our first year on the air: 1971.

That year Mountain, along with Johnny Winter, played two shows on the same night at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. The first show was at 8pm and the second show at 11pm. Mountain had just released its monster hit “Mississippi Queen” the year before and were hitting the road to support their second studio album, “Nantucket Sleighride.”
