Slow Flux is an album by Steppenwolf, released in 1974 under the label Epic. In the US it was released on the Mums Records label, a short-lived CBS Records subsidiary. It was the first of three albums the band created after reforming in 1974 before they disbanded again in 1976. "Straight Shootin' Woman" was the last Steppenwolf song to chart on the Billboard magazine Top 40. "Children of the Night" is hard rock song with deep lyrics. It's about how the hippie movement at this time had died, and president Richard Nixon is referred to as "the fool who believed that wrong is right".
