Mountain Live: The Road Goes Ever On is the fourth album by hard rock band Mountain. Released following the band's first breakup in 1972, Windfall Records compiled the album using old live material. Mountain would later reform in 1974. The title comes from J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

The opening drum break on "Long Red" has been sampled by hip hop artists.
