  • Not really a Steppenwolf album; but a live recording from The Matrix in San Francisco of Sparrow, the band that later evolved into Steppenwolf from May of 1967. ABC/Dunhill, Steppenwolf’s label, bought the tapes of the show, while it was waiting for the group’s next album (Monster) and released it in 1969. No matter, this live recording features the blues roots that later became one of the conerstones of the unique sound of Steppenwolf and illustrates that a number of the songs featured here, would become part of the Steppenwolf (The Pusher, Power Play, & Tighten Up Your Wig) catalogue throughout their career.
