Review: 'Live' Bullet and Nine Tonight - Bob Seger

Reissue also begins the introduction of Bob Seger albums and extras to the digital world.

Recently, the Bob Seger crew reached back into time to pull out two live albums from the catalog. The first, 'Live' Bullet, was originally released in 1976, just months before his breakthrough Night Moves LP effortlessly catapulted him to the top of concert draws. 'Live' Bullet captures Seger and The Silver Bullet Band at their most raucous AND most perfect with a high energy romp through pre-Night Moves songs.

Nine Tonight was released in 1981, picking up where 'Live Bullet' left off. All of Seger’s beloved hits are here. From the remembering of the past in the timeless “Mainstreet,” and “Against The Wind” to the energy of “Old Time Rock and Roll” and “Rock And Roll Never Forgets,” Nine Tonight is almost as good as 'Live' Bullet but is equally essential for its continuity.

Capitol Records have reissued both live albums with remastered sound and expanded by an additional track. 'Live' Bullet adds “I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home,” while Nine Tonight tacks on “Brave Strangers.” Both newly reissued albums are available on CD. They also mark the introduction of Bob Seger to the digital world via DD.

Remastered sound, extra tracks, two very good live albums…what’s not to want?
