30 years ago, I bought this record......I was 16.....I just bought the CD and it is more magnificent than ever. The words came flooding back to my memory, the music is so sexy, it's for every 46 year old lady to enjoy and reminice about those days.I can really appreciate the blues-influence in the songs. I love it!!!!

I bought the original LP of this over 25 years ago (still have it!) and I've always thought this was the album that was the most consistently satisfying from start-to-finish, track-to-track than any other 'Wolf album. Consequently, I also think it's the most under-rated album in their catalog. "For Ladies Only" goes beyond the raucousness of the Born to Be Wild/Magic Carpet Ride/biker period and delivers a more mature-sounding, tighter band with more interesting things to say than "Sookie Sookie". The songwriting is what really shines on this concept album dedicated to the better half of the world and the tracks flow well back-to-back as a good concept album should. But, it still manages to rock out as well as any of their prior, bluesier albums. This was Steppenwolf's last great album with the original group line-up. Best tracks include the title cut, "Sparkle Eyes", "I'm Asking", "Ride With Me", "Tenderness" and the instrumental, "Black Pit". If you like Steppenwolf and you've only got one of their greatest hits collections, you need to get this, as well as Steppenwolf 7.

If you can find the album version, buy it at any cost. The "Dickmobile" on the inside cover has got to be the greatest piece of rock art ever placed in an album. The music here isn't typical Steppenwolf because the theme of this is; women. This is a vastly under-rated effort. John Kay proved here that he can do other things besides heavy metal biker songs, although some numbers fall right into that slot like "Ride with Me" "Jaded Strumpet" is another personal favorite with a fresh sound to it. As usual, John Kay's biting political commentaries hit like a sledgehammer and there is outright humor too in "Tenderness". This is one of Steppenwolf's best albums.

This one's worth getting for a number of songs which never appear on the compilations. The title track is nearly 10 minutes long here, and includes one of the finest and most affecting piano solos ever done in rock. The instrumental "Black Pit" is at once smoothly cool and a bit oddly haunting at the end. "Sparkle Eyes" is a sad recollection of encountering an old girlfriend who's been damaged by many hardships. Sensitive portrayals like this run counter to the macho image carried by Steppenwolf. The other songs may not be great, but they are quite OK and are well played/produced with a minimum of gimmickry. As on "Seven", bassist George Biondo sings lead on a couple of tracks, his voice sounding a bit oddly like Rod Stewart. (Judging from the high prices this out-of-print album seems to command, it's probably a better plan to get the more affordable remastered two-fer Early Steppenwolf/for Ladies Only .)

I was looking for a balanced sound on this excellent opus, the best Steppenwolf album to my sense. It was very difficult to find a CD in the nineties and only a japanese edition was available for a time but the sound wasn't quite good. The reissue on the english label BGO that appeared on a double CD along with "Early Steppenwolf"is a nice deal, but here, too, the sound isn't excellent. So I decided to look for a vinyl that I recently found (on Amazon.com of course!), and I was truely amazed how great is the sound even if the vinyl is a used one. It sounds great for this opus: there is something not uncommon that analogic transfer looses much of the original sound and it's particularly true for this album (same for the Quicksilver Messenger Service first albums and many others in fact). So I recommend vinyl to the very fans of "For ladies only". The whole Steppenwolf machinery plays wonderfully atuned on these songs and you find one of the most impressive almost mystical instrumental in rock music: "Black Pit". I am hearing this music without being tired of it since the band created it in the early seventies. "For ladies only" remains among one of the ten best albums in rock music!

Quite a different groove for the Grand Old Band. The long version of "For Ladies Only" is a revelation for those that have just heard the single version. 4-5 more solid rockers on the disc, glad to finally replace the vinyl!

Ahh... It's still as great as it was in "the day". The seller was very quick with the disc and it arrived in perfect condition. With songs like Night Time's for You and Jaded Strumpet this album will always be a favorite.
