Editorial Reviews

Product Description

After forming his Silver Bullet Band and touring relentlessly, Bob went Top 40 with a live LP before going Top 10 with this 1976 smash. From the album opener Rock and Roll Never Forgets to the two other hits here, the irresistible Night Moves and the bittersweet Mainstreet , this remains a certified classic of heartland rock!

Amazon.com

After more than 10 years working the Midwest club circuit, Detroit's Bob Seger hit mainstream American paydirt with this distillation of working-class values and juke-joint rock & roll. His regional success had been brewing throughout the mid-'70s, but after Bruce Springsteen connected with Born to Run (copping Seger's traditional rock values, to say nothing of his husky tone), it was only a matter of time before Seger found his ticket. Seger scores here with the nostalgic title track, the somber ballad "Mainstreet," the over-tanked rocker "Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgets," and the raunch standard "The Fire Down Below." --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock and Roll from the Seventies August 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic of Rock and Roll and Seventies music. With truly great tunes and a really hard rocking beat, probably the best of all the Bob Seger albums, this one truly shows off the ability of the band to just truly rock out.
There are some great classic rock songs like "Rock and Roll Never Forgets" and "Night Moves" but also some more sensous laid back tunes like, "Sunspot Baby" and "Mary Lou"
I'm not really sure if having the gold disc edition really adds anything, I couldn't tell any difference, but this version does sound a lot better than my old cassette tape version.
A good reccomendation for anyone who likes 70's classic rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob has all the right "Moves" November 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Night Moves" is Bob Seger's breakthrough album. Released in 1976, and featuring the massive hit single of the same name, it was the record that lifted this long time little noticed blue collar rocker into mega stardom. Today, it still holds up as one of the best rock albums of the 1970s. Though not quite as good as Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run," it represents the same kind of commercial and artistic breakthrough and can be mentioned in the same breath without embarassment. Other than the title track, "Rock and Roll Never Forgets" and "Mainstreet" are the other two first rate singles. "Sunspot Baby" is an excellent breakup song and "The Fire Down Below" is a firery rocker. The rest of the material is first rate as well. "Night Moves" is a must own album for any fan of classic rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic song, lots of to-be-realized potential December 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is where I first was introduced to Bob Seger. Like many others, I first heard him in the mid seventies on FM rock & roll radio through the title cut of this album.
"Night Moves", to my mind is one of the greatest rock songs ever. Of course, songs about long-lost youth (sometimes sadly misspent, sometimes wonderfully misspent), and long lost loves often make the best and the most memorable ones.
The rest of this album is fine, with lots of good songs. "Rock & Roll Never Forgets", "Fire Down Below" and "Mainstreet" are among my favorites. Seger was one of the last great rockers, who I think was as consistently creative as the much more commercially popular Bruce Springsteen. He has put together a fantastic collection of songs. This album is a great addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seger's best studio album August 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Night Moves" is a 1970s American rock classic that holds its own with Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" as one of the best of that decade. What Seger may have lacked in comparison to Springsteen's epic songwriting, he more than makes up for with his ability to write a good hook and with his energetic performances and great singing. The song "Night Moves" has become a classic rock radio staple. But "Rock and Roll Never Forgets," "Mainstreet," "The Fire Down Below" and "Sunspot Baby" are all first rate songs. Seger still has a bit of a rough edge here that he would lose later on during his more polished "Like a Rock" television commercial phase. This album deserves to be in any classic rock fan's collection.

Format:Audio CD
In October of 1976, Detroit singer/songwriter Bob Seger released his tenth album Night Moves.
By that point, Bob Seger had been seen pretty much as a one hit wonder with "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" from 1968. Between 1968 and 1975 had to develop a word of mouth reputation as a hard working live act although his albums weren't selling all too well up to that point. However, the year 1976 proved to be a very pivotal one to Bob. He along with The Silver Bullet Band (at the time consisting of bass player Chris Campbell, guitarist Drew Abbott, sax player Alto Reed, keyboard player Robyn Robbins and drummer Charlie Allen Martin (sadly this was his last album with the band as he would be paralyzed in a freak accident prior to the Night Moves Tour starting)) whom Bob had as his backup band since 1973, Bob released his first US Top 40 charting album, the classic double live album Live Bullet which would go Gold by that Christmas thanks to relentless touring with KISS that year as the opening act on KISS' Destroyer Tour (say what they want but touring with KISS was the launching pad for Bob Seger, Rush and many bands before and since). Then that October, released Night Moves which would become the album that immortalized Bob Seger for good.
The first half of the album has The Silver Bullet Band playing with Bob. The opening track is the rocker which is the classic "Rock and Roll Never Forgets". This track just rocks, even today. Then the next track is the title cut to Night Moves which was the first single from the album and his first US Top 5 hit (reached #4 in early 1977).

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic album for the ages August 20, 2002
By Brad
Format:Audio CD
This album is an all-time classic. Sure, it brought the legendary Bob Seger into the mainstream, but it is absolutely vintage classic rock.
Like many others, I can't rave enough about the title track, a slow gem that just oozes memories of youth. "Rock And Roll Never Forgets" is the ultimate classic rocker, and it couldn't be more appropriate considering how unforgetable this album is. "The Fire Down Below" is kind of a "raunch rocker" that Bob would get away from later on in his career. "Mainstreet" is another wistful song full of obvious memories for the man from Detroit.
I can't say enough about "Sunspot Baby", the ultimate classic rocking breakup song. "She packed up her bags and took off down the road; she left me here stranded with the bills she owed" is roughly how the song begins. A breakup song with attitude is the way I can best describe this--an absolute treat and favorite.
All in all, this is a legendary album from beginning to end. After all these years, I still can't say enough about it. An absolute must for those who long for the classic rock of the seventies.
