Blast From The Past: The Live Albums

It all started when I pulled out Bob Seger's "Live Bullet" a while back and started listening.....I thought to myself "this has got to be one of the best live albums ever!".  As time passed, I realised that the time when "Live Bullet" came out (1976), the national record-buying public had yet to become familiar with the hard-working regional artist. October of 1976 "Night Moves" came out and changed all that.  Recorded over two consecutive nights at the legendary Cobo Hall in Detroit, "Live Bullet" featured those sold out crowds who were already familiar with Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band. In essence by this time Bob Seger was a "10 year overnight sensation".  Clearly Bob is putting on a show like any other gig, but all of a sudden the world is allowed to hear just how good this guy really is....opening with Ike and Tina's "Nutbush City Limits", running strong through regional hits "Travelin' Man" and "Beautiful Loser", creating FM radio classics with "Turn The Page" and "Katmandu"...."Live Bullet" still remains in the top ten biggest selling albums of all time which means new generations continue to discover and re-discover this gem! The Video link is the opening track for the album...enjoy.
