Bob Seger: Seven

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, May 1974

THIS ALBUM has a subtitle, Contrasts, and it's a good word for Bob Seger. At times one of the most no-nonsense rockers the country has to offer, at others he can be unbearably pretentious and virtually unlistenable. A legend for years in his home state of Michigan, Seger is still, after nine years and seven albums, hardly known anywhere else. Contrasts, indeed.

Total word count of piece: 427
