Description

Offered for sale is an original Japanese red vinyl white label promotional copy of Steppenwolf 7 by Steppenwolf, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of Steppenwolf 7 is an original Japanese promo copy on the Stateside/Dunhill label.

The cover is VG, with a bit of general wear and wear at the edges and corners.

The obi is in G condition.  It’s complete, but has three repaired tears and a number of wrinkles.  The “hojyuhyo,” or reorder tag, is still attached.

The lyric insert is missing.

The red vinyl white label promo disc is quite clean.  Side one would be M-, but there are several scuffs through one track (“Forty Days and Forty Nights”.)  The track plays quietly.

Side two is M-.  Aside from the scuffs through that one track, there are no marks at all on the vinyl and no spindle marks on the labels.  It’s a clean disc.

A nice copy of a rare Steppenwolf LP, as the band’s albums sold quite poorly in Japan.

Background: Released in 1970, the oddly-titled Steppenwolf 7 was the band’s fifth studio album.  The LP reached #19 on the U.S. album charts and was their last album to earn a gold record from the RIAA.

Allmusic.com gave Steppenwolf 7 this review:

 This is a very worthwhile Steppenwolf recording, chock-full of their trademark sound, but nothing that was going to penetrate the Top 40. …Steppenwolf 7 is an intriguing collection of album tracks showing the two sides of John Kay — the hard rock singer and the artist setting his sights on interpreting other musical styles. It came at a moment when the band needed to redefine itself on the AM band, but opted instead to just put out a decent product and take few risks.
