CD Reviews

The Bst Of Them Live!
Barron Laycock | Temple, New Hampshire United States | 10/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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"
One Of The Very Best Live Albums Of All Time!

"Steppenwolf have never gotten their Due for releasing some of the Finest Records of the Late Sixties and Early Seventies that still hold up Today as well as they did 40 years ago.

In 1970, the Band released the 2 LP, Live Album, and it's a Stunner!
With the Crazy Crowd, fully a part of the Show and the Fantastic playing of this Band, this Record is the Blueprint of what every Live Rock Record of the 1970's SHOULD BE. The Chaos and Wild Abandon of those Times can be heard to full effect of this CD.

Of course the Hits are on it; "Born To Be Wild" and "Magic Carpet Ride", but if you only have heard the Studio Versions, listen and see What Steppenwolf can do live. Like Live Concerts of The Doors, Steppenwolf could and did have Riots going on at some of these Shows. The "Monster" LP, had given them lots of Press as a: "Political Rock Band" and that is when the Crazy-Factor went up to Ten, on the Ten Scale.

But the reason "Live" is just so good are the Songs. "Hey Lawdy Mama", "Corina, Corina", "Monster", "The Pusher", "Don't Step On The Grass, Sam"... It's One classic, right after another. The Guitars are Loud, the Organ is all over the place and Jerry's Drums keep everybody in line.
These Guys had been playing for Years and Years and it shows by just how tight they were on Stage. Songs are way longer than their normal playing time just as you would expect. It is Simple, this Band delivers here and Thank Goodness, that they got it all down on Tape!

If you want to here a Band at the Peak of their Performing Powers that sweats: "Heavy Metal Thunder", this is the one to Purchase.

One of the best!

"Steppenwolf Live, Allman Brothers at Fillmore East, and Rare Earth in Concert are the greatest live albums ever made. The previous commenters have about said it all as far as the music is concerned. It will never be matched. If you don't have this CD in your collection, get it now!"
