Leslie West Streaming New Album 'Soundcheck' Online In Full

(Classic Rock) Leslie West has made his upcoming album Soundcheck available to stream in its entirety via The Blues. The album - which features guest appearances from Peter Frampton, Brian May, Max Middleton, Bonnie Bramlett and the late Jack Bruce - is released on November 30 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group.

West made his name in Mountain and has influenced guitarists including Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and Jethro Tull's Martin Barre. Barre had the following to say:

"Prior to going into the studio to record Aqualung, I met Leslie, whose playing I absolutely loved. Leslie is well known for his association with Les Paul Juniors, and just after meeting him, I picked up a 1958 Junior because his sound was so incredible. I would say that he's the only guitarist who has ever influenced me directly." Listen to the album here.
