Steppenwolf by Steppenwolf

Steppenwolf is the first album by Canadian rock band Steppenwolf, released in January 1968 on ABC Dunhill Records.  The album was a successful debut for the band, featuring the songs Born to Be Wild, as well as The Pusher, both of which were used in the 1969 motion picture Easy Rider. Who can’t listen to Born To Be Wild and not picture Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper riding their motorcycles down the highway?  This album features the powerful vocals by John Kay and great keyboard playing by the late Goldy McJohn with such great tracks as Sookie Sookie, the blues classic Hoochie Coochie Man, Berry Rides Again a tribute to guitarist Chuck Berry and many others. This album was well written, recorded and produced.  This is an album that made me a big fan of Steppenwolf for decades.
