Customer Reviews

There have been some great live rock and roll albums but this is one of the best.
R. J. Haynes
I can't say much to describe this album except that about halfway through any given song on it I'm nodding and saying, "Yeah... that was a good one, too."
Ryan Richards
I'm with the minority in liking this one better even though they are both very good.
Greg James

I agree with the other reviewers that this is a better greatest hits collection than the actual greatest hits CD. however, it hardly sounds like a live album. When seger achieved commercial success he fell into the same trap that the eagles have always been in - playing the songs *exactly* as they were recorded in the studio. "Old Time Rock & Roll" is the only song that sounds different with it's extended intro and lower key presumably so Bob could handle the vocals live. If you're looking for a place to start your seger collection and want to start with the hits then definitely buy this one first. However, if you're looking for some great live seger drop everything you're doing and pick up Live Bullet. Now *that* is a five-star album!

There can be no doubting that this is a classic live album. If you don't know, The Silver Bullet Band were so good in the late 70s/early 80s that they could tear up a storm in any arena. The music on this is ample evidence and, like Live Bullet, a seminal double live album.

New remasters should make the best possible of releases. But....

On the first cd release fans bemoaned the fact that Let It Rock had been edited down from the 10min 30sec it was on the original vinyl release. This should have been the time to put it right but Capitol hasn't! It is still the edited version. A star dropped :-(

The bonus track Brave Strangers should also have been placed after We've Got Tonight because, like the studio album, it followed it in most live shows on the tour. Another star dropped for this :-(

What is here is fantastic but is could have been and should have been even better.

In this sequel to LIVE BULLET,we hear songs from the studio albums following LIVE BULLET. They are NIGHT MOVES,STRANGER IN TOWN and AGAINST THE WIND. This set,NINE TONIGHT,is appropriately titled. I supposed this album was taken from various concerts that began at 9 PM. NINE TONIGHT is from the movie "Urban Cowboy". Bob Seger recalled in an interview that NINE TONIGHT was intended for the AGAINST THE WIND album. But the producer for the "Urban Cowboy" soundtrack album had the song ready for inclusion on the album(UC). This album was recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit in June 1980 and Boston Garden in October 1980. The AGAINST THE WIND album was being promoted when this album was recorded. Seger has a new keyboard player,Craig Frost,succeeding original Silver Bullet keyboardist Robyn Robbins and David Teegarden,a new drummer. Teegarden replaced original Silver Bullet drummer Charlie Allen Martin,who quit the band due to an auto accident that parayzed him. Like LIVE BULLET,LET IT ROCK was the final track on the album. This version is more electrifying. The CD has an edited version because otherwise it would have been believed that would exceed the maximum playing time on a CD. Or,it would have become a 2 CD set. The LP gives LET IT ROCK's playing time as 8 minutes and 45 seconds. The CD version is only a little over 6 minutes.

This was Bob's second live album, and as is the case with most sequels, this one isn't quite as good as the first one. At the time of it's release, I was a DJ for a rock station, and remember the mornin' that "Tryin' To Live My Life Without You" came in as a single, (45 RPM record). Everyone in the station went nuts over it, and we all watched the mail daily for the album.
And we were kind of let down when it finally arrived. The opening/title cut rocked much better than the studio version, (which had been released on the infamous "Urban Soundboy Cowtrack" as we called it), and segued right into the single we'd already been playing.
After that, the album served as a sort of "Greatest Hits" at that time. For the most part though, I prefer the studio versions. The notable exception here is "Old Time Rock And Roll," which puts the much over-played studio version to shame. Featuring a :45 second rockin' guitar intro, as opposed to the short piano intro on the studio version, THIS is how the tune SHOULD sound!
In summation, if you have the studio versions of the hits, and the first "Live Bullet" album, you don't really need this one...EXCEPT that, no Seger collection is complete without this version of "OTR&R"...Worth buying for that song and the first 2 on the album alone.

Bob Seger first came onto the music scene in 1969 with the song "Ramblin Gamblin Man". After that suprise hit, he released numerous albums that were commercially flops, but he made a name and built up a strong follwing as a road warrior. Years on the road helped hone his craft and he became a great showman. These skills show up in the 1976 live album "Live" Bullet, which was his commercial breakthrough. After that he wracked up huge sales with the releases of Night Moves, Stranger In Town & the number one album Against The Wind. Much of Nine Tonight is made up of the best songs off those albums. While Nine Tonight isn't as strong as "Live", it still is a great snapshot of Seger's concert skills. The studio versions of "Fire Lake", "Hollywood Nights", "Rock & Roll Never Forgets", "Night Moves" & "Fire Down Below" are already great and they get a little extra kick here. The best song on the album is a cover of an old R&B number "Tryin' To Live My Life Without You" which is tailor-made for Seger's gravelly vocal style. While he has made some great studio albums, Seger is still at his best on the stage and Nine Tonight gives you the best of both Seger worlds.
