What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

May 31, 2007. You can now listen to streaming free music from this band as well as others at Wolfgangs Vault.

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

June 27, 2005. A visitor to this web site provided additional information about the early personnel in the band.

January 25, 2002. The webmaster for Goldy McJohn visited this web site, and help with a bit of information I didn't already have.

August 3, 2001. I started creating this page. :-)

INTRO:
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

In 1965, in Canada, a band called The Sparrows was losing their singer. John Kay, was performing folk-acoustic blues at a local coffee house. One of The Sparrows asked John Kay to sit in with them. Then they asked John Kay to join the band permanently. At this point they started performing more blues and rock (and less pop). They were also starting to write their own material (some later showing up with Steppenwolf). They continued to perform regularly, first in Canada (1965-1966), and later moving to New York (1966) (where they did some demos - Columbia Records), then Los Angles (1966-1967) (where they recorded more demos - Columbia Records), then San Francisco (1967), then back to Los Angeles (1967). Along the way, their name had changed from The Sparrows, to The Sparrow to finally Sparrow.

Columbia Records released some of the Sparrow recordings, but they didn't make much of an impact, so Columbia Records released Sparrow from their recording contract. And shortly after this (1967), the band broke up.

Dunhill Records heard the Sparrow demos, and thought there was potential. But without a band, nothing was going to happen. So, John Kay started a band with 2 former members of Sparrow, and brought in 2 new musicians. They had planned on using the name Sparrow, but their producer suggested using the name Steppenwolf. They accepted the name change, went into the studio, and started recording songs. Their first 2 singles didn't do much. But their third single, Born To Be Wild (written by a former Sparrow) made it to the top of the charts, and Steppenwolf took off.

The Steppenwolf sound was based on the voice of John Kay, and the songs (written by all members of the band) and the guitar keyboard dual lead. The lyrics of their songs were consistently more topical than most of the bands at that time. Their music was a blend of blues/rock/hard rock.

From 1967 to 1972, Steppenwolf recorded and released six studios albums, one live album, and a live album called Early Steppenwolf that was actually a live recording of the band Sparrow. In February 1972, after various personnel changes, they decided to disband. Which is where this web page ends, although John Kay has reformed and disbanded Steppenwolf a few times since then.

Comments and corrections would be appreciated.

And of course, any audio-video-print additions to my collection would be appreciated.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any articles, books, albums, tapes, CDs, ... on this band that you would like reviewed and / or integrated into this page?

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?

even thought the liner notes state the recording was on this day, Chicken On A Unicycle
researched live shows at the Matrix, and Sparrow did NOT play the Matrix on this day.

MusicStack looks like a good source of used music items (LPs, CDs, posters, ...).
As always, let me know what you think.

4 Million Hard to Find CDs & LPs at MusicStack
December 10, 2002.
Back in October 1999 I put up links to CD-Now so that visitors could easily link to the related band pages and instantly see which items were still in print/available for purchase. CD-Now no longer has that option. For the moment I am putting in Amazon.com search boxes. Amazon.com doesn't easily allow for links to individual band pages in the same way that CD-Now used to. So, instead of me being able to create direct links, I have put up the Amazon.com search box instead. So you can still go to a page with the various bands products, buy you now need to go through a search box.

As always, let me know what you think.
