5.0 out of 5 stars You came here for the best! March 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
How can words convey the electricity swirling around southeast Michigan in 1975 when this lp was recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit? At 12 I was still listening to AM and "bubblegum" music, but a friend let me borrow a copy of Seger's "Beautiful Loser" and I thought he was " a fox" (the lingo in those days). When the "Live Bullet" lp came out months later, both generations of my family.... parents, aunts, uncles, cousins....everybody had to hear it over and over. It helped that my cousin Debbie had tried to convince us 10 years earlier that Bobby would be a star someday and we hadn't believed her and now we were all eating humble pie (she should have made bets, she'd be rich now!) To get a sense of what playing a concert at Cobo Hall meant in those days: "Kiss Alive" was made at Cobo Hall. When Elvis came, he came to Cobo Hall (at least, before the Pontiac Stadium was built). So the idea that this kid's band that Debbie used to go see when he played at bars or at college concerts recorded an lp at Cobo must have really meant he was famous, according to my family ( I guess the fact he played with John Lennon and Yoko Ono at the Free John Sinclair Rally years earlier didn't faze them).
"Live Bullet" was much better than "Beautiful Loser" because Seger sings much better live. He gets a lot from a great audience. It is a give and take thing for him.
One of the unique things about this CD is that it contains some of his older stuff, which is hard to get. It also features a great drummer & back-up singer, Charlie Martin, who was in a tragic accident shortly after this show and was never able to play again. "Heavy Music", which Bob & Charlie duet in, is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars CATCH THE SILVER BULLET! October 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
LIVE BULLET is the real deal when it comes to concert recordings. Nobody did it any better live than Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band. Recorded live at Cobo Hall on September 4th and 5th in 1975, LIVE BULLET represents Seger climbing to the peak of his career, recorded the year before the NIGHT MOVES album would break them wide open in terms of popularity. This was the tour following the BEAUTIFUL LOSER album. A thundering burn-the-house down cover of Ike & Tina Turner's NUTBUSH CITY LIMITS is the opening track of this incredible concert CD. Slower blues based ballads that would become Seger's trademark signature sound are next on the track list, TRAVELIN' MAN, BEAUTIFUL LOSER and JODY GIRL. Track 5 is a rocking cover of Van Morrison's I'VE BEEN WORKING. Track 6, TURN THE PAGE, is an FM radio classic. Tracks 7 and 8, U.M.C. and BO DIDDLEY, are as bluesy as anything The Blues Brothers ever did. Track 9, RAMBLIN' GAMBLIN' MAN, is one of the bigger early Seger hit songs. Track 10, HEAVY MUSIC, is just awesome. Track 11, KATMANDU, is another early Seger hit song. Everybody know's this one, come sing along. Track 12, LOOKIN' BACK, (like HEAVY MUSIC) is just plain awesome. Track 13, GET OUT OF DENVER, is an improvisation of Chuck Berry's JOHNNY B. GOODE and is absolutely a rocking little number. Track 14, LET IT ROCK, is the finale, another Chuck Berry improvisation number - this time of LITTLE QUEENIE. Believe me when I say that it doesn't get any better than this. This is OLD TIME ROCK & ROLL at it's best. LIVE BULLET doesn't include Seger's biggest hits from NIGHT MOVES or STRANGER IN TOWN like the CD NINE TONIGHT LIVE does, but all in all is a much better performance than NINE TONIGHT. Every single track on LIVE BULLET should have been a chart topper - it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Live Albums ever recorded August 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Bob Seger's career seemed to be going nowhere fast when he recorded the fantastic live album "Live Bullet" and consequently jump started his career. Though it was released before the album "Night Moves" and as a result contains few of his best known songs, it is still full of great songs and great performances. The best sequence is "Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser" in which he links two good studio songs into one great live performance. Also first rate are the burned out performer anthem "Turn the Page," (lately covered by Metallica) with its weary vocals, the ballad "Jody Girl" and some great rave up versions of his early singles "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man," "Katmandu" and "Get Out of Denver." Any fan of Bob Seger or of great American classic rock should own this record.

If you want to know what a real Detroit rock concert was like back in the 70's, this is the CD. The performance, the production, the selection of songs - this is just a great concert experience - and its the only CD I carry in the car (I know it's 30 years old, but ...)

Its just a little rough around the edges - denoting a REAL live performance, but WOW, It FEELS like a live concert ...

(I saw these guys in Detroit the year after this album was released wnd was hooked. I attended [almost] every show after that when they came into town ... even traveled out of town to see them...)

The last few tracks - Bob and the boys are just JAMMIN' and the only way to listen to it is ... LOUD ... very, VERY LOUD.

Its just a crime that this performance isn't being sold on DVD. The way Mr. Seger interacted with the audience and could get the entire venue out of their seats, dancing and clapping and singing ...

In my opinion, it's one of the best live performances ever recorded. Highly, HIGHLY recommend it.

When I think of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, this is the performance I see ...
