6th album by US Rockers extraordinaire Steppenwolf and the only official live recording (originally a double LP) by the classic lineup of the group, which was recorded at various locations in early 1970, when the group was touring supporting their latest studio album 'Monster'. They perform several tracks from the latest album, as well as a selection of their classic material from earlier albums. The group was in top form at the time and their performances are strong and convincing, with John Kay firmly in the lead. Apart from the musical content, which is excellent, it is also a great opportunity to hear Kay's commentary when introducing the tunes, which reflects upon the social / political upheaval in the US at the time, with Rock musicians often in the forefront of the struggle. Rock obviously had a serious role as a means of expression and active platform at the time, when most rockers were intelligent enough to have something to say in addition to playing music, times sadly long gone by now. This album can be used as a time machine; just crank up the volume, relax, close your eyes and here you go 40 years back in time, when Rock was Rock and music was music. Enjoy!
