Classic song, lots of to-be-realized potential,
This review is from: Night Moves (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.

"Seger was one of the last great rockers"
Read: "I discovered Seger around the time I stopped looking for new music"
There have been plenty of great bands and "rockers" since Seger. It annoys me to no end when people make statements like that.
