  • This was the first Steppenwolf album I bought, and it really got me hooked. On long drives between college and home I just pop this in and let it run. It really got me hooked on John Kay, and I’m slowly amassing more stuff. Beat Goes On put out a couple of good double albums that are worth looking for too, one with Steppenwolf/Steppenwolf The Second and another with At Your Birthday Party/Steppenwolf 7. I am very happy with this CD! There isn’t a weak track on it, and for introduction purposes it’s right on.

  • I must admit, this is a pretty good collection, but you’ll only be truly satisfied if you’re a casual fan of Steppenwolf. Otherwise, buy the British import “The Very Best of Steppenwolf” or their entire collection.

  • This ten track collection of some of Steppenwolf’s best is among one of my favorite cds. My favorites include Born to be Wild and the psychadelic soul of Magic Carpet Ride. I may only be a teenager, but nowadays when the pointless drivle churned out by modern artists I always have my favorite music to turn to from the 1960’s.

  • Let’s keep this brief. Five stars for the music. Three stars for the value. Months after this Millennium release, MCA put out All Time Greatest Hits. Eighteen songs–including the two hits (“Monster” and “Straight Shootin’ Woman”) not found here. Your music library should have some Steppenwolf in it–but this one ain’t it.

  • There is a reason that the sixties rock group Steppenwolf still sells so strongly some thirty years after their arrival on the sixties rock scenes with a quick succession of powerful heavy rock hits like “Magic Carpet Ride” and “Born To Be Wild”. I’ve always admired lead vocalist John Kay’s singing style, songwriting and lyrical talents, and his outspoken personal warnings against the dangers of drug excess with songs like “The Pusher” and “Snowblind Friend”. He was anti-drug when it was anything but fashionable to so cautious and careful. And Kay also knew his way around a melody, and whether he was making insightful social commentary in a number of songs like “Monster” and “Draft Resister” or just plain old wailing in terrific, edgy songs like “Never Too Late (To Start All Over Again)” or “Twenty Eight”, he used the combination of his lovely lyrics, driving melodies, and wild rock improvisation to create a whole rafter of memorable, insightful and very appealing rock songs. Most of them are here, and those that aren’t you can find in their other albums. Steppenwolf quickly earned the undying support and admiration of their original fans, and are finding new listeners through terrific compilation albums like this must-own collection of their hits. Enjoy
