Mono clear vinyl edition.
Heavy Metal Thunder! You couldn’t go anywhere in the blazing summer of ‘68 without hearing ‘Born To Be Wild’ blaring, and its inclusion in the iconic Easy Rider the following year cemented it as rallying cry for bikers and countless other counterculture miscreants.
On their debut album, Steppenwolf (fronted by John Kay’s menacing rasp) reach new levels of deafening heaviness, ripping through a set of originals and attitude-filled covers, simultaneously forging a name for the sounds of an emerging genre. Pressed at RTI on clear vinyl and packaged in an elaborate foil jacket, this is the first ever reissue of the highly-coveted mono version of the album.
