Steppenwolf’s Gold: Their Great Hits originally hit shelves in 1971 and immediately lived up to its title earning gold certification in a months time. It serves as both an ideal introduction to the band and the ultimate encapsulation of their ’60s glory. Analogue Productions’ 200-gram 33 1/3 RPM reissue was remastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Sound, plated and pressed by Gary Salstrom and his crew at Quality Record Pressings and is housed in gatefold packaging with a poster insert.
«Perhaps the biggest surprise about this 1971 compilation, nearly a half-century after the band’s heyday, is not the quality of the music that’s obvious but the sonic impact. Most of us were introduced to this paradigm of gusty, semi-psychedelic rock via AM radio (or a certain hit road movie about two biker/hippies…), so few of us listened to ‘Born To Be Wild’ or ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ over good sound systems. But damn, the sound is solid, visceral, raunchy and detailed. John Kay’s snarl, a wall of guitars, those much-loved pedal effects and 11 sure-fire classics… This reissue is truly a fitting tribute to keyboardist Goldy McJohn, who passed away last August.» Sound Quality: 85% Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News, April 2018
