Description

Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of Steppenwolf, the self-titled debut LP by Steppenwolf, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of Steppenwolf is a 1985 pressing on the MCA label of an album that was originally released in 1968.

The cover is M-.  The obi is M-, with a very tiny (1/16″ or so) tear at the top edge.  The insert is VG, with a number of wrinkles and quite a bit of foxing.

The disc is M- with a couple of spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  Clean disc!

A nice copy of a scarce Steppenwolf LP, as their albums sold quite poorly in Japan.

Background: Released in 1967, Steppenwolf was the debut album by Steppenwolf.

The album reached #6 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the single “Born to Be Wild,” which reached #2 on the U.S. pop charts.

Allmusic.com gave Steppenwolf a 4 star review:

Steppenwolf entered the studio for their recording debut with a lot of confidence — based on a heavy rehearsal schedule before they ever got signed — and it shows on this album, a surprisingly strong debut album from a tight hard rock outfit who was obviously searching for a hook to hang their sound on. The playing is about as loud and powerful as anything being put out by a major record label in 1968, though John Kay’s songwriting needed some development before their in-house repertory would catch up with their sound and musicianship.
