Released in 1968,
this was Steppenwolf's
highly successful debut LP.
Includes their mega-hit, "Born to Be Wild,"
plus "Sookie, Sookie" and "The Pusher."
"Berry Rides Again" is also a great track!
If you are not already a fan,
I'm not sure there is much I can say
to convince you of this group's
iconic role in the late '60s
progression of rock music.
If you ARE already a fan,
there's not much I could say
that would change your mind
or add to your knowledge,
How 'bout this:
a) the silver cover made it difficult for an
amateur photographer like myself to get a clean shot of the cover;
b) this album came to me second-hand (garage sale, I think),
so the disturbing, unfortunate red enhancements are not mine.
