Classic Vinyl: Steppenwolf Live
Steppenwolf Live was one of five live albums released by Steppenwolf. Released in 1970, the album reached #7 on the rock charts in the United States, and included popular songs like “Magic Carpet Ride” and “Born To Be Wild.”
However, the live performances on the album did not come from one performance. In fact, not all the tracks on the album were even live. Listen below to hear Sam Talkington describe some the bizarre traits of this great live album, and how they cut the record to convince listeners that certain tracks were live rather than recorded in the studio.
