Nine Tonightby Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band
A live album, 1976's exceptional Live Bullet, had launched Bob Seger's career, and Seger returned to the format a second time five years later with 1981's Nine Tonight. The album is comprised of versions of songs from Seger's previous three best-sellers: 1976's Night Moves, 1978's Stranger in Town, and 1980's Against the Wind. While Seger and his Silver Bullet Band can stretch out in a concert setting, the live versions here stick pretty close to their original studio versions. The cut of "Old Time Rock & Roll" included here proves to be even better than the original, while such Seger standards as "Against the Wind," "Night Moves," and "Rock & Roll Never Forgets" also prove to be highlights.

From opening 'til close, he rocks almost as hard as his first live album, "Live Bullett". I saw him in concert, and no one can get people moving like Bob, whether live in concert, or live on an album.
There is no sitting still when this plays for us Oldies fans. Now, this really rocks! Love every track.
The cumulative effect of early 1950s rock Sax with 1980s guitar virtuosity, an incredibly tight band and vocals performance, a live audience at two different concerts and the solid sound recording effort of these live shows, it just doesn't get any better then this. You are either rock and roll or your'e not!
