5.0 out of 5 stars Earschplittenloudenboomer 6 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This 2CD set twins Steppenwolf's 3rd studio album At Your Birthday Party (1969) with their 5th studio album Seven (1970).

It is fortunate that Seven is a real tour-de-force, because Birthday Party is not the band's most consistent or strongest album...

Yep, At Your Birthday Party comes as a bit of a disappointment in the wake of their truly sensational debut album and follow-up The Second. By now, the band were in a frenzy of touring, and lacked the time and opportunity to work up new numbers before hitting the studio.... and unfortunately it shows. Some cracking songs hold the album together - It's Never Too Late, Rock Me, Happy Birthday and Jupiter Child - but a lot of the album falls short of what you'd expect on a Steppenwolf album.

Seven, on the other hand, is a cracking album, with not a baggy filler of a song in sight. The whole album is simply superb, classic Steppenwolf. A lot of the album is driving hard-rock - Ball Crusher, Hippo Stomp, Who Needs Ya, etc, but there are quieter almost delicate moments like Hoyt Axton's Snow Blind Friend (Axton penned the group's earlier hit - The Pusher). There are also moments of fun in Fat Jack, a song about the hotdog seller next to the studio. Renegade also deserves a mention, this being a song about John Kay's (aka Joachim Krauledat) escape from Communist East Germany as a boy. And as for Earschplittenloudenboomer... well I'll leave you to work that one out for yourself.

Seven would have been a five star album on it's own, and Birthday Party a three. So I'm inclined to give four stars overall... But hold on. For value alone I think this 2CD pack is worth an extra star. So ***** from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time To Upgrade The Howling Wolves... 28 Dec 2013
By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First things first - the CD I was posted is an old 1996 BGO issue with the Barcode 5017261203366 which I already owned. However if you use that barcode in the Amazon search-bar above you're automatically brought to this supposed new 2008 'remaster'. It short this 2008 release isn't new - but the old version reissued (with the same barcode).

It has to be said that the sound quality is great - and even with the mastering mistake which gives the 7" single edit of "it's Never Too Late" instead of the full album version (on the "At Your Birthday Party" album) - it's still a great buy. And I've always loved the Steppenwolf 7 album from 1970 which absolutely rocks on here with a fantastic transfer (CD2). But the booklet is the old 8-page version - two pages of which are a blurred live photo and the essay is functional at best. This is badly in need of an upgrading.

I say all of this because I've bought a lot of BGO reissues between 2010 and 2013 and they've uniformly been brilliant in terms of presentation and sound - just as impressive as Ace or Edsel. They usually come in a classy card wrap too (which this one doesn't) - and the booklets make a real packed effort to inform. More importantly the remastering by Andrew Thompson from proper tapes is superlative - Dan Fogelberg, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Karla Bonoff, John Kay.

And for fans - Steppenwolf's catalogue has been issued in Japan in 2013 on newly remastered SHM-CDs with full repro artwork - and most with Single Only 7" Mono Mixes as bonus tracks (these are unavailable anywhere else).

My point is that the 1996 version is good - but its time for an upgrade boys...and stop saying things are '2008 remasters' when they're not...

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware 28 Oct 2006
By W. Belanger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not a bad combination disc, but buyers should beware that the version of "It's Never Too Late" on Birthday is the edited version commonly found on greatest hits compilations (the second stanza is missing), not the original album version. How BGO managed to make this error is a mystery.
5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Sound Quality 30 May 2014
By Niven J Baird Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These BGO 2-fers really sound great - much better than those old MCA editions. Thanks to the Seller for having it for me and for the great price!
