Capitol Records has newly re-mastered the long out-of-print Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band's "LIVE BULLET" album. Originally released in April 1976, the double album will be re-issued on June 11 in traditional black vinyl and also translucent orange & red swirl vinyl. The cool psychedelic version will only be available at indie record stores and Bob Seger's Official online store.
Recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit in September 1975, the original album gained Bob Seger national attention. He had been a huge success throughout the upper Midwest in the early 70's, but found support outside of that region elusive. But 'Live Bullet' presented his best songs through the intensity of the singer's live shows, which rivaled the power and tightness of even Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band.
The album captured Seger's iconic medley of “Travelin’ Man” and “Beautiful Loser,” which went on to become an airplay staple on rock radio, along with the definitive live version of 1972's “Turn the Page.”
Bob Seger's farewell tour was in the books as the Covid-crisis swept the concert business in 2020, but the legendary singer can look back on a storied career that resulted in 53 million albums sold, with 13 of those going platinum and 7 reaching multi-platinum status. His biggest-selling studio albums include the six-million selling 'Night Moves" and "Stranger in Town" albums, as well as the chart-topping "Against the Wind" which sold 5-million. To date, "Live Bullet" has been certified 5-times Platinum.
