Steppenwolf - Monster

Steppenwolf - Monster.  On the Dunhill ABC label.  The inside cover of this - their 4th album - released in 1969.  It is hard (impossible) to read - but the text on the innder jacket sleave is the words to the title track - Monster.  Some of which reads,  "The cities have turned into jungles, and corruption is stranglin' the land.  The police force is watching the people, and the people just can't understand.  We don't know how to mind our own business, 'cause the whole world's got to be just like us.  Now we are fighting a war over there.  No matter who's the winner, we can't pay the cost.  'Cause there's a monster on the loose, it's got our heads into the noose.  And it just sits there... watching."  The credit listed on the jacket read: Recorded at American Recording Company.  Produced by Gabriel Mekler.  Engineered by Richard Podolor & Bill Cooper.
