The Fire Inside

All Music Guide - Bret Adams
Michigan's Bob Seger is an American treasure, but he doesn't get the full respect or attention of, say, Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp because he wasn't as visible. His late-'70s prime was pre-MTV; New Jersey-born Springsteen had the fawning support of the New York-based media; and Mellencamp embraced high-profile political causes like Farm Aid and married model Elaine Irwin. 1991's The Fire Inside is credited to Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, but that's misleading. Keyboardist Craig Frost plays on most of the songs, but saxophonist Alto Reed and bassist Chris Campbell are virtually MIA. Instead, Seger uses countless special guests, including Joe Walsh, Bruce ...

Michigan's Bob Seger is an American treasure, but he doesn't get the full respect or attention of, say, Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp because he wasn't as visible. His late-'70s prime was pre-MTV; New Jersey-born Springsteen had the fawning support of the New York-based media; and Mellencamp embraced high-profile political causes like Farm Aid and married model Elaine Irwin. 1991's The Fire Inside is credited to Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, but that's misleading. Keyboardist Craig Frost plays on most of the songs, but saxophonist Alto Reed and bassist Chris Campbell are virtually MIA. Instead, Seger uses countless special guests, including Joe Walsh, Bruce Hornsby, Roy Bittan, Steve Lukather, Don Was, Waddy Wachtel, Rick Vito, Mike Campbell, Patty Smyth, Lisa Germano, and Kenny Aronoff. "The Real Love" is an acoustic guitar-based song is indicative of Seger's gift for writing mid-tempo ballads. The tremendously rewarding "The Fire Inside" lives up to its name. On this career highlight, Seger's great lyrics poetically describe the frailty of human emotion but the passion in our never-ending yearnings; Bittan's bright piano melody and Russ Kunkel's crisp, forceful drumming help Seger sing with inspired resonance. Walsh and Seger actually engage in a guitar duel on "The Mountain." The spunky rocker "She Can't Do Anything Wrong" ends The Fire Inside on a high note.

    Underrated Album

    I've been a Seger fan since I first heard "East Side Story" and "Heavy Music" on the Robin Seymour show in Detroit in 1967. This is one of the few Seger albums I never bought, having read the reviews that it was his poorest effort. On the strength of the brilliant "Fire Inside" song, I finally bought the CD. Wow. This is a great piece of work, albeit more piano-driven (except for the Joe Walsh led "Mountain"). There's fiddles and squeeze boxes. The songs, like Bob, are more mature, very introspective lyrics, beautifully crafted. There's no "Betty Lou's Getting Out Tonight" type of 70's rockers - thank God, that is an overrated period - so this one never got the credit it deserves. A brilliant effort. "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" and "Mongrel" were a long time ago, I've given up on Bob ever making another "Lucifer", but I would settle for large doses of this older, mature Seger if he still had an active career.

    Seger is an all time full on rocker

    I wish vh1 would do an interview with Bob Seger. I really miss his music and wish he would do a new album. He is a classic rocker and I never get tired of listening to his music. He still has a lot of fans out here that would love to hear from him and the band. Rock on Seger we miss you.
