Comments: There are few details regarding this particular concert.

John Kay toured Europe as The John Kay Band in 1972, and also as Steppenwolf on the same bill, John Kay fronting both groups.

It is therefore likely to be from one of these gigs, and so, this might be the complete 'Steppenwolf' show, from the tour (are you still with me?)...

Whatever this is a feisty performance with the London audience clearly loving every minute.

Thanks for sharing. I had the chance to see Steppenwolf in concert some years ago in Paris(ashamely in front of only 100 people... no one remembers this band in France)but still the concert and John Kay's voice were great.
