Great, For What It Is
This is just a continuation of the GH1 package from 8, yep that's right, 8 long years ago. Its great stuff. One could ask why if they insisted on including songs from "Its a Mystery" they chose "Manhattan" (a well intentioned but preachy, pretentious little song) and left off "By the River". And if they were going deeper into "Beautiful Loser" why not include "Nut Bush City" as well? "Fire Inside" still rates as his most underappreciated work, with 2 great songs "Take A Chance" and "Real Love" getting omitted. So for what it is, this is a good collection. Gathering the songtrack hits and the addition of the two new songs makes it a "must have". It sucks for what it is not. Dedicated Seger fans will grow old and die waiting for RG Man, Seven, Mongrel, Smokin' OPs, Back In '72, Noah, and the earlier singles to ever get released. "RG Man" (the song) would have been out of place on this collection, but Seger has a helluva anthology he should be obligated to work on and release. Check out the web site "Seger Files" for great info on Seger and quotes where he says he's maybe going to do just that. Yeah, right.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
