I'd give it 6 stars if I could
on 13 April 2012
In my opinion this is one of the best rock albums of the early 70's. It's a mixture of outstanding covers (Free's The Stealer and Allman Brothers Midnight Rider) and superb Seger originals (Rosalie, Turn the page, Back in `72). There's not a duff track on the original album. The only down side is the 4 disappointing bonus tracks at the end.
I bought this when it first appeared on vinyl back in '73 and loved it. Since moving over to CD in the `80's I've been looking for a CD version. According to Wikipedia, it is rumoured that Seger is unlikely to release this on CD as he's unhappy with the vocals. This version appears to come from Argentina, so I suspect that it's an unofficial release. Grab it while you can.
