Editorial Reviews

The 20th Century Masters series is the best-selling single-artist line in music history and is being re-released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."

To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered. Official liner notes are easily accessible on the Internet at http://www.ilovethatsong.com/green.

UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoam®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoam®.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Steppenwolf Rock Hits! July 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
There is a reason that the sixties rock group Steppenwolf still sells so strongly some thirty years after their arrival on the sixties rock scenes with a quick succession of powerful heavy rock hits like "Magic Carpet Ride" and "Born To Be Wild". I've always admired lead vocalist John Kay's singing style, songwriting and lyrical talents, and his outspoken personal warnings against the dangers of drug excess with songs like "The Pusher" and "Snowblind Friend". He was anti-drug when it was anything but fashionable to so cautious and careful. And Kay also knew his way around a melody, and whether he was making insightful social commentary in a number of songs like "Monster" and "Draft Resister" or just plain old wailing in terrific, edgy songs like "Never Too Late (To Start All Over Again)" or "Twenty Eight", he used the combination of his lovely lyrics, driving melodies, and wild rock improvisation to create a whole rafter of memorable, insightful and very appealing rock songs. Most of them are here, and those that aren't you can find in their other albums. Steppenwolf quickly earned the undying support and admiration of their original fans, and are finding new listeners through terrific compilation albums like this must-own collection of their hits. Enjoy

Let's keep this brief. Five stars for the music. Three stars for the value. Months after this Millennium release, MCA put out All Time Greatest Hits. Eighteen songs--including the two hits ("Monster" and "Straight Shootin' Woman") not found here. Your music library should have some Steppenwolf in it--but this one ain't it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE FOR STEPPENWOLF FANS July 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This ten track collection of some of Steppenwolf's best is among one of my favorite cds. My favorites include Born to be Wild and the psychadelic soul of Magic Carpet Ride. I may only be a teenager, but nowadays when the pointless drivle churned out by modern artists I always have my favorite music to turn to from the 1960's.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the casual fan November 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, this is a pretty good collection, but you'll only be truly satisfied if you're a casual fan of Steppenwolf. Otherwise, buy the British import "The Very Best of Steppenwolf" or their entire collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction! June 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Steppenwolf album I bought, and it really got me hooked. On long drives between college and home I just pop this in and let it run. It really got me hooked on John Kay, and I'm slowly amassing more stuff. Beat Goes On put out a couple of good double albums that are worth looking for too, one with Steppenwolf/Steppenwolf The Second and another with At Your Birthday Party/Steppenwolf 7. I am very happy with this CD! There isn't a weak track on it, and for introduction purposes it's right on.

20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection: Best of Steppenwolf

Steppenwolf is a North American rock group that was prominent in the late 1960s. The group was formed in 1967 in Los Angeles by vocalist John Kay, guitarist Michael Monarch, bassist Rushton Moreve, keyboardist Goldy McJohn and drummer Jerry Edmonton after the dissolution of group The Sparrows, formed by John Kay in the early 60s, of which only Moreve was not a member.

The band has sold more than 25 million records worldwide, releasing eight gold albums and twelve Billboard Hot 100 singles of which six were Top 40 hits, including three Top 10 successes: "Born to Be Wild", "Magic Carpet Ride", and "Rock Me". Steppenwolf enjoyed worldwide success from 1968 to 1974, but clashing personalities led to the end of the core lineup. Today, front man John Kay is the only original member left, having served as lead singer since 1967.

The band finally rocketed to worldwide fame after their third single "Born to Be Wild" was released in 1968, as well as their version of Hoyt Axton's "The Pusher" and were prominently used in the 1969 cult film Easy Rider (both titles originally had been released on the band's debut album). In the movie, "The Pusher" accompanies a drug deal, and Peter Fonda stuffing dollar bills into his Stars & Stripes-clad fuel tank, after which "Born to Be Wild" is heard in the opening credits, with Fonda and Dennis Hopper riding their Harley choppers through the American West. The song, which has been closely associated with motorcycles ever since, introduced to rock lyrics the signature term "heavy metal" (though not about a kind of music, but about a motorcycle: "I like smoke and lightning, heavy metal thunder, racin' with the wind...").

Magic Carpet Ride is incredible, and Born to be Wild is just as good. While most of the other songs lack the punch of those two, Steppenwolf still deserves a place in classic rock history.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - great songs, great price...OK sound November 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I know these 20th Century Masters collections have a bad rep, but when you consider the song selection, sound quality and price tag, they're just about perfect for casual fans looking for an introduction to some classic artists. Case in point: this collection of `60s hard/heavy rock band Steppenwolf.

This 20th Century Masters collection may not cover everything some of Steppenwolf's more expansive hits collections cover (Gold is probably the best of the bunch), but considering the band only had two major radio hits ("Born to Be Wild" and "Magic Carpet Ride") and they're both included here, this collection works pretty well. The sound quality isn't bad, but compared to some of the other 20th Century Masters releases it doesn't quite measure up.

Serious Steppenwolf fans will probably find reason to complain about this collection, but they're the ones least likely to need a collection like the 20th Century Masters series in the first place. For casual fans looking for a decent-sounding, affordable collection that covers the band's biggest hits, this one fits the bill just right.
