Product Description

For over 40 years, Bob Seger has been one of America's best mainstream rock & rollers, crafting an impressive body of catchy, hard-rocking songs. Compiled here are some of Bog Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's greatest hits, including, 'Old Time Rock & Roll,' 'Turn the Page,' 'Hollywood Nights,' and his breakout hit, 'Night Moves.' Part of a two release collection alongside Bob Seger's Greatest Hits Vol. 2, this album is sure to satisfy Bob Seger fans old and new alike.

Bob Seger has racked up a lot of worthy tracks over the years, but it took until 1994 for a greatest hits package to appear. Voilà. The bad news: We're missing an awful lot of songs here. Night Moves is Seger's crit-pick album, and a great place to start if you don't have any Seger at all. Next in the rankings is Stranger in Town. Otherwise, his highs are pretty scattered, which would make any best-of package a worthy investment. But if you want to get comprehensive, "Rock & Roll Never Forgets," "Fire Down Below," "Horizontal Bop," "Her Strut," "Betty Lou's Getting Out Tonight," and "Katmandu" aren't on this CD--and you'll have to go to the original albums to secure them. --Gavin McNett

Customer Reviews

Bob Seger is one of rock's best guitarists!
PLM
I recomend this cd for every one who is a Bob Seger fan and you should buy this cd because you will love it as much as me.
Richard Nahmensen
While many of those missing songs were put on Volume 2, this greatest hits record is 13 great cuts.

Like any "Greatest Hits" album, this CD suffers from a mysterious lack of some of Seger's best work. Where's "Let It Rock," for example, or "Beautiful Loser," "Fire Lake," "Nine Tonight," etc. I know there's a limited amount of space available on any one CD for such a prolific artist, but I'd still rather have seen some of these songs than what ended up on this collection. That's not to say most of it isn't good; "The Fire Inside" is firmly established as my favorite Bob Seger song ever: a driving beat, a catchy melodic line and the typically introspective lyrics that are the reason Bob Seger is truly a rock legend. A string of classic songs occurs with "Hollywood Nights," "Still The Same," and "Mainstreet," but while the use of "Roll Me Away" and "Turn The Page" near the beginning isn't bad, it still seems like there are better songs that could have been put there. Of the two previously unreleased songs, "C'est La Vie" is the standout; even though it was originally a Chuck Berry number, Seger and the Silver Bullet band do a wonderful job with it. "In Your Time" is less noteworthy, and seems to be there mainly to underscore the fact that this album is dedicated to the children of the band members. A[...] Overall, this CD doesn't really seem representative of Seger's "typical" style to me. But it still contains a wealth of good, old-fashioned rock (since it's my opinion that Seger never wrote a bad song), and it's a wise investment.

Over the past 2 decades, Bob Seger has put out some of the best mainstream rock and roll and this release gives a good sample of that. Most greatest hits collections tend to either overlook key songs when dealing with successful artists, or give you a bunch of filler when the record company has the audacity to put out a 1 or 2 hit wonder "greatest hits" release.
Obviously when dealing with Bob Seger, there are just too many great songs, but these release overlooked too many especially when there were over 20 minutes left blank that could have filled with "Rock and Roll Never Forgets," "Katmandu," "Shame on the Moon," or any of his amazing early records; notwithstanding what is here is good and there is absolutely no filler. This 1994 release includes a new song that is really good as well as a very cool version of Chuck Berry's "C'est La Vie"
Capitol Records is attempting to correct this wrong by releasing a second greatest hits volume on 11/4/2003. The good news that that this release will include overlooked songs as well as newer material, including two new songs.
But back to thsi release... The songs will take you back to a time when music and life was so different. Listening great songs like "Against The Wind", "Night Moves", and "Mainstreet" (which I am lstening to right now) is a pleasure that I had not enjoyed in a long time as I am now revisiting all my CDs as I had gone overboard trying to buy new stuff and most of it fails to impress as those of yesteryear.
I do wish that Capitol Records had released a remastered version of this release as it did with many others in the Bob Seger catologue as there are some incredible songs that deserve to be heard more clearly.

Format: Audio CD
This 1994 compilation from Capitol is really a misnomer. It contains only 9 of Segers charted singles. There's a lot of stuff missing that Capitol cleverly issued on "Greatest Hits Vol. 2". But it's a new day baby. Most major record companies are issuing "Ultimate Collections" of their most successful and prolific artists. It is high time that Capitol issued just such a disc for Bob Seger.

There is certainly no problem with the music on "Greatest Hits".

Not a bad track in the bunch. Several of Bob's biggest hits are here including his 1976 classic "Night Moves", "Still The Same" and "Against The Wind". You'll also find "Old Time Rock and Roll" and an outstanding remake of the Chuck Berry tune "C'est La Vie". But one cannot help but come away feeling cheated by this collection. The included booklet is OK but nothing special and contains little in the way of biographical information. The remastering job is fine but again at this stage of the game there is really nothing here to recommend this collection.

I suspect that Capitol will correct this oversight in the near future and issue a more impressive 20 track overview of Seger's entire career. In the meantime, I'll simply play my old '45s!

This CD presents a quandary. Do you rate a greatest hits collection based on the quality of the songs on the CD, or on the completeness of the collection? Based on the quality of the CDs, this is a 5 star CD. However, the notable missing songs make this a 3 star compilation. Therefore, I have averaged the songs for 4 star overall rating.
In the Detroit area, Seger is viewed as something just short of a deity. Therefore, any Detroit review of his work is jaded. I can't get enough of his music. If you want to hear Seger at his finest, get a live CD, "Live Bullet", or even "Nine Tonight".
Unfortunately, there are many great songs missing from this collection: "Rock & Roll Never Forgets", "Katmandu", "Travelin' Man", "Beautiful Loser", "Nutbush City Limits", and "Get Out of Denver" are just examples. However, as greatest hits collections go, there are perhaps too many Seger hits for one CD.
Overall, this CD has great songs, with some omissions.
