Live at 25: Silver Anniversary

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
While Steppenwolf can take some credit for spawning the heavy metal genre the term came from the "heavy metal thunder" phrase in "Born to Be Wild", they remained, at heart, a hard rocking bar band, and this reissue of their 1995 double-disc live set bears witness to that.

While it undoubtedly would have been fun to see a show on this tour, John Kay's occasional bombastic tendencies, which began to emerge way band back in 1969 on Monster, make this set feel, at times, like a Broadway production of a big, bad, rock band concert.
