About the Song
"Magic Carpet Ride" is a rock song written by John Kay and Rushton Moreve from the band Steppenwolf. The song was initially released on the album Steppenwolf the Second. It was the lead single from that album, peaking at #3 in the US, and becoming the band's second-biggest hit, surpassed only by "Born to Be Wild". The single version differs noticeably from the album version with a different vocal take by Kay used for the first verse of the song and differing instrumental balances. The single version is also much shorter than the album version, with a running time of 2 minutes and 55 seconds (the album version is 4 minutes and 27 seconds long). Mother's Finest recorded an up-tempo Funk-Rock version of Magic Carpet Ride on their 1979 Live album. Pop artist Myra recorded a cover of the song with a Latin twist for the album "La Vida Mickey."

About the Artist
Rushton Moreve (born John Russell Morgan; November 6, 1948 – July 1, 1981) was an American bass guitarist best known for his work with the rock band Steppenwolf from 1967–69 and again in 1978. According to singer John Kay, Moreve was an intuitive bassist with a melodic style that brought a non-commercial sound to Steppenwolf, a technique exemplified on the hit he co-wrote with Kay, "Magic Carpet Ride". Moreve's early influence was essential in creating the unique musical style for which Steppenwolf became famous. Moreve joined the band in 1967 and performed on their debut album, Steppenwolf, which was composed of covers and songs written by Kay. Moreve's influence was heavier on the follow-up, The Second, his final album with Steppenwolf. He split with the band in 1969 when he refused to fly back to California, fearing it would sink into the Pacific Ocean. Moreve was killed in 1981 in a motorcycle accident. Moreve joined the band in 1967, having responded to a "Bass Player Wanted" notice posted at Wallich's Music City at Vine and Sunset. One of Steppenwolf's most popular songs was "Magic Carpet Ride", a song that evolved out of.
