Bob Seger Turns 70 Today, Plans Reissue of Night Moves
Bob Seger turns 70 today, May 6th. Bob has always been a favorite of mine. Love the passion he puts into all of his projects.
His breakthrough album, Night Moves, from 1976 will be reissued on high quality (180 gram) vinyl June 16th.
Night Moves was Seger's first studio effort to feature his longtime backing group, The Silver Bullet Band, and was his first album to reach the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at #8. Bob recorded much of the album in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section.
Night Moves yielded two top-40 singles -- the title track, which reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the #24 hit, "Mainstreet." It also includes the enduring tunes "Rock and Roll Never Forgets," "Fire Down Below," and "Mary Lou." The album has gone on to sell more than six million copies in the U.S., according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
Seger recently wrapped up a North American tour in support of his latest album, Ride Out.
