Easy to forget now just how huge the 'wolf were in late 60s America. This, their sophomore album, released in October 1968, climbed steadily up the Billboard charts, peaking at #3 in January '69.
It has to be one of their best albums, being a great blend of hard rock and psychedelics. Their hit single Magic Carpet Ride is featured on side 2. Best track title? Tighten Up Your Wig. Yeah, man. Who doesn't need a tight wig?
With a back cover photo by the legendary Henry Diltz and a pleasingly far-out cover, this is an essential late 60s album for any collection.
A UK mono copy in mint condition will set you back around £40, my copy here is a stereo issue and is worth about £15 - £20.
