Digitally remastered two CD set offers either a complete career overview or extensive selections from the artist's most important years & will feature key hits, album tracks, extensive liner notes, credits, period photos, & more.

Universal Music Enterprises continues its double-disc Gold series with 31 tracks of Steppenwolf. Remastered and featuring extensive liner notes by notable music writer Scott Schinder, Gold is far too much music for listeners who are content with "Born to Be Wild," "Magic Carpet Ride," "Sookie Sookie," and "The Pusher." The bluesy pub rock of the band's later years can get a bit repetitive, and the inclusion of three John Kay solo numbers – do you really want to hear another version of "Drift Away"? – seems unnecessary, but Gold is by far the most comprehensive compilation yet of the band that coined the term "heavy metal thunder." Fans who just want the singles would be better off picking up MCA's single-disc 16 Greatest Hits.

Review by James Christopher Monger, Allmusic.com

Since "Born to Be Wild" blasted its way up the charts back in '68, I have been a fan of John Kay and Steppenwolf. At one time or another I have owned all of their classic LP's, Reel to Reel tapes, and more recently CD's. The sad fact of the matter is that the first batch of Steppenwolf cd releases sound flat and lifeless and are basically garbage. This unfortunate situation was improved with the Mobile Fidelity release of their first self titled album on their gold cd format.This disc has long been out of print but is usually available on Amazon for a huge premium. The catalogue once again became listenable when the BGO label remastered the first 8 non-compilation albums in 2 disc sets. However, the 2005 release of the double cd set titled Steppenwolf Gold, actually sounds great, much better than anything ever released previously with the possible exception of the lone Mobile Fidelity disc. I have heard nuances in these songs that I have never noticed before and the sound is smooth and non-fatiguing with plenty of air. It goes to show what can be done with careful remastering and just how far the redbook cd format has improved since its infancy. This release is a must have for aging boomers that still love Steppenwolf.
