  1. I love Lu Lu. I think she has a top notch voice. I would give Oh Me, Oh My an A.
    I had one of the Steppenwolf greatest hits compilations–the one with Snow Blind Friend. I think it’s one of the best greatest hits albums. I never did care for Monster though. I would usually skip that one. It’s a weird song. Steppenwolf as environmental activists?…Not a good look.
    Never did like The Lettermen. To me, that would be torture–to be forced to listen to The Letterman. Ugh!

  2. I’ve only had Steppenwolf’s greatest hits packages…never had an original album. There are a few non-hits I like but overall don’t know much about them. Kay’s voice is one of a kind… I will say that. I saw a version of them in the 80s…he is a good frontman.

  3. Yeah, really! They look more ’70s on the Greatest Hits album but on the complete hits they look like versions of Brett’s friends as satirized on SNL by Matt Damon: PJ and Squi and Handsy Hank and Gang Bang Greg, LOL ! ! !
