Mountains was the third album of the British blues-rock band Steamhammer.

In summer 1970, Steamhammer recorded this album as a quartet, Kieran White (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Martin Pugh (guitar), Steve Davy (bass) and Mick Bradley (drums). These four musicians worked together as a team to provide a selection of high-quality white urban blues.

The live track, "Riding On The L&N", is one of the highlights of the Mountains album, which contains blues numbers combined with rock music.

With the release of this album, Steamhammer began to be more noticed by the rock world.
