Collectors information & Description: 

Gatefold (FOC) cover design with artwork / photos on the inside cover pages

"For Ladies Only" is the sixth studio album by the band Steppenwolf, released in 1971 . It is a political concept album mainly about feminism but with several more conventional songs about romance as well, both unusual themes for Steppenwolf.

Ironically, some critics saw the album as sexist, citing an image of a vehicle shaped like male genitalia alongside the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the sleeve of the record album. The album saw the band hinting toward the progressive rock movement that was popular at the time with more complex arrangements and sophisticated keyboard playing particularly evident on the title track "For Ladies Only". While some critics cited the lack of a popular single, the album defined the group as being more musically accomplished than what was offered on their previous releases. The album also appealed to the audiophiles of the time, as the studio engineering production values were particularly excellent with Bill Cooper overseeing the recording.
