This embryonic formation of Steppenwolf is often credited as being the first British invasion band not only in Canada, but in the whole of North-America. Formed in Ontario in early 1964 by London-born Dave Marden (Jack London) the band quickly grew a good reputation and a solid local following. After moving to Toronto from their native Oshawa, the band released their only album: the first beat album in Canada to feature only original songs, and no covers. The album has several stand-out tracks, with a (as expected) marked Beatles/Zombies sound, and is often seen in 'favorite' lists by well-known rock'n'roll writers. Now rescued from obscurity after decades being unavailable on vinyl, this historic album finally receives its deserved reissue.
