Editorial Reviews

2011 two CD compilation from the Rock singer, songwriter and icon. For the first time, all of Bob Seger's top hits have been gathered for a career-spanning double disc set. The 26-track collection includes "Night Moves," "Turn The Page," "Hollywood Nights," "Mainstreet," "Old Time Rock And Roll," "Like A Rock," "Her Strut," "We've Got Tonight," "Against The Wind," "Still The Same," and many other classics, as well as the Detroit rocker's two #1 radio singles from this year, "Downtown Train" and his current #1 Classic Rock hit, "Hey Hey Hey Hey (Going Back To Birmingham)." All songs on the album have been meticulously remastered from the original master tapes, including the original mono version of Seger's first hit "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" and Seger's timeless rendition of the holiday classic "Little Drummer Boy."

He has sold more than 50 million records worldwide. During the ten year period between 1977 and 1986 Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band amassed an impressive total of 6 consecutive Top Ten albums while at the same time placing a string of 16 singles in the Billboard Top 40. All the while Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band were packing 'em in in arenas all over America. I always thought it extremely peculiar that his record label of more than three decades Capitol Records had never seen fit to issue a true anthology of his biggest hits and most popular recordings. At long last Capitol has corrected this oversight with the impressive two disc collection "Bob Seger: Ultimate Hits -- Rock & Roll Never Forgets". It seems to me that it was definitely worth the wait.

To begin with you will find each and every of of Bob Seger's seven Top Ten tunes in this collection including "Night Moves" the song that made him a star back in 1976. Also included are memorable hits like "Still The Same", "Shame On The Moon", "Against The Wind" and 1987's "Shakedown" from the motion picture "Beverly Hills Cop II" starring Eddie Murphy. That song was both an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee for "Best Original Song" that year. Now oddly enough the most popular Bob Seger song of all-time was not one of his biggest-selling singles. "Old Time Rock & Roll" was initially released in April, 1979 and made its way to #28 on Billboard's Top Pop Singles chart. A few years later in 1983 Capitol re-released the single when it was featured in the Tom Cruise film "Risky Business". This time out it only made it to #48 on the charts.

For some odd reason, the catalog of Bob Seger (BS) was more or less limited to his greatest hits compilation from the early 90s, taking advantage of people buying anew music they had on record LPs in the more recent CD format. Like other incomplete compilations from that period, e.g. Journey's Greatest Hits, it sold many million copies simply because those were the only sensible releases for people to buy (unlike Bob Seger, Journey's catalog was available but most people simply went for the Greatest Hits package).

A few glaring omissions in the previous BS compilation included Fire Lake, Rock and Roll Never Forgets, Katmandu, Shame on the Moon and his biggest hit, Shakedown (he said he hated it at that time). BS selected those tracks himself, not always the perfect judge on what the rest of the world considered his best moments. These omitted tracks are all here. Almost half, 12 tracks split evenly between his 3 biggest albums (Night Moves, Stanger in Town & Against the Wind), cover the 26 tracks in total. The rest is mostly radio and fan favorites. What you have here is thus a rather complete BS collection.

There are still a few, albeit minor hits missing, such as Even Now, The Real Love and American Storm. Also, his post 80s work is practically non-existent. Since there is plenty of space left on each CD, one could ask for a little more. I, however, don't mind that much (The Real Love the main exception, it is a great song), with the length of 2 sides of an LP just about the right length in one listening session of BS for me.

I recommend paying a few extra $ (actually when this is written, maybe just a dollar or two) for this set as opposed to the single CD version since this one is way more complete track wise.

This is an excellent 2 disc set...I have greatest hits 1 and 2...The mastering on greatest hits 1 is awful at best...GH 2 is very well done...with this set you get the best...2 major songs missing though..."The Fire Inside" and "Understanding".....this could have very easily been a triple disc set...and to be honest...should have been...but hey I can live with this...I just hope Bob goes back to the studio and does another album again very soon.

Another compilation of Seger material that falls short. I am, by no means, a Seger fanatic. But I did own a radio in the 70's and 80's. And there's a lot missing from this set. But first, let's look at the positive.

GOOD NEWS:
The remastering of these tracks is startling in it's crispness and clarity. Excellent work on that, for sure! The sound quality on GH1 (1994) was much inferior to GH2 (2003). This collection addresses that annoying discrepancy once and for all. There are great songs left off other collections which are present here ("Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser" [Live]), and the new tracks are actually hits. And finally, this is the best Seger collection available. It has what most casual fans will want.

BAD NEWS:
This really could've been "Ultimate" but here's why it's not. Both disks have only 13 tracks each (both of which clock in at well under an hour). Given this fact, the omission of numerous big hits is unforgivable: "Even Now" (1983) hit #12 on the charts; "Understanding" (1984) #17; "American Storm" (1986) #13; "The Real Love" (1991) #24. There's plenty of room for these songs and more. Having MULTIPLE Top 30 hits missing from the "Ultimate" collection is entirely unacceptable! Then there's the matter of radio staples that didn't chart which are also left out" "Feel Like A Number" [Live] (1981). These songs (with the exception of "Understanding") either aren't available for download and/or haven't been remastered. I would have gladly paid more for a more complete package.

In the end, this 2CD set is still the best thing going until something better comes along.

Ultimate?
Exactly my thinking. Why on earth are "The Fire Inside", "Sunspot Baby" and "Wreck This Heart" not on this cd? And why have the idiots at Capitol not reissued any of the albums released between 1969-1974 other than Smokin' O.P.'s? Someone needs to get on that... Read More
