Product Description

Product Description

After forming his Silver Bullet Band and touring relentlessly, Bob went Top 40 with a live LP before going Top 10 with this 1976 smash. From the album opener Rock and Roll Never Forgets to the two other hits here, the irresistible Night Moves and the bittersweet Mainstreet , this remains a certified classic of heartland rock!

Amazon.ca

After more than 10 years working the Midwest club circuit, Detroit's Bob Seger hit mainstream American paydirt with this distillation of working-class values and juke-joint rock & roll. His regional success had been brewing throughout the mid-'70s, but after Bruce Springsteen connected with Born to Run (copping Seger's traditional rock values, to say nothing of his husky tone), it was only a matter of time before Seger found his ticket. Seger scores here with the nostalgic title track, the somber ballad "Mainstreet," the over-tanked rocker "Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgets," and the raunch standard "The Fire Down Below." --Rob O'Connor

This is Bob Seger's first studio album with his recently formed Silver Bullet Band. Only several months before NIGHT MOVES was released,LIVE BULLET,recorded in September 1975,was released. This was the last album for Silver Bullet Band drummer Charlie Martin. Martin quit the band after a paralyzing accident. I believe he had to. Now for the songs: the title track tells a stoiry about a guy(possibly Seger)and his girlfriend. THE FIRE DOWN BELOW is about two girls,one named Rosie,who's looking mighty fine, and the other named Nancy,whom a guy is walking the streets for and he'll find her every time. ROCK AND ROLL NEVER FORGETS mentions 50's rock 'n roll great Chuck Berry,who influenced Seger. MAINSTREET is another telltale ballad. SUNSPOT BABY is about a guy who was swindled by a girl he was involved with,such as "she charged up a fortune on my credit card". SHIP OF FOOLS is about life on a vessel. SUNBURST tells about a man who's a king or lives like a king. The other two songs,COME TO POPPA and MARY LOU are cool. ROCK AND ROLL NEVER FORGETS,THE FIRE DOWN BELOW,the title track and MAINSTREET were later re-recorded for NINE TONIGHT in 1980. The title track re-entered the pop charts in 1994 when GREATEST HITS was released. There was a video depicting the lyrics of the song. Sorry,there was no MTV in 1976 when the title track debuted on the radio. But there were seldom-seen music videos.

If you're looking for simple, straight-ahead, three-chord rock 'n' roll, Bob Seger is your man.
Most of Seger's records suffer from a lack of consistency, and many of his songs simply sound too much alike. But "Night Moves" features some of the best and most original songwriting of Seger's career, and the most varied moods as well.
It's not a perfect record, nor a particularly original one, but it's a good, solid rock album, alternating between up-tempo songs like "The Fire Down Below" and the excellent, fiery rocker "Rock And Roll Never Forgets", mid-tempo grooves like "Sunspot Baby" and "Mary Lou", and ballads like "Ship Of Fools", "Mainstreet" and the title track.
Most of these songs can be found on Seger's two excellent live offerings, and those two remain the best way to get acquainted with his music, collecting virtually every highlight from his 70s and early 80s albums.
But if you want to dig a little deeper, "Night Moves" is a good buy. One of Bob Seger's best studio albums for sure.
3 3/4 stars.

This is the album that made Bob Seger a familiar name. I liked the song "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" that I heard on the radio back in '69. I even have the LP that it's on. The group was called "The Bob Seger System" and the album is titled "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man". After that I don't recall hearing anything by Seger until this album came along. "Night Moves" is one of those classic rock songs nearly everyone has heard. But it's not the only good song here. "Mainstreet" is one of my favorites, I still find myself singing it sometimes. "The Fire Down Below" is another I always liked. I admit, I don't care for all the songs but the standouts are unforgettable and rock classics. The slowdown on "Night Moves" and lyrics are great. I think of the line "Started hummin' a song from 1962..." At the time 1962 was 14 years in the past. Now its been around 27 years since this album came out; ..."Ain't it funny how the Night Moves"......?

This album is an all-time classic. Sure, it brought the legendary Bob Seger into the mainstream, but it is absolutely vintage classic rock.
Like many others, I can't rave enough about the title track, a slow gem that just oozes memories of youth. "Rock And Roll Never Forgets" is the ultimate classic rocker, and it couldn't be more appropriate considering how unforgetable this album is. "The Fire Down Below" is kind of a "raunch rocker" that Bob would get away from later on in his career. "Mainstreet" is another wistful song full of obvious memories for the man from Detroit.
I can't say enough about "Sunspot Baby", the ultimate classic rocking breakup song. "She packed up her bags and took off down the road; she left me here stranded with the bills she owed" is roughly how the song begins. A breakup song with attitude is the way I can best describe this--an absolute treat and favorite.
All in all, this is a legendary album from beginning to end. After all these years, I still can't say enough about it. An absolute must for those who long for the classic rock of the seventies.

This album turned the commercial tide for Bob Seger, changing him from a Detroit-based cult favorite to a mainstream star. He certainly deserved it -- he's a terrific singer and "Night Moves" is not only one of his very best songs, but manages to cram wistful memories and erotic passion into one tune. Combine it with such great songs as "Rock 'N' Roll Never Forgets" and the day-in-the-life "Sunburst" and you've got some fine music.
The album slows down dramatically on what would be side two if LPs still existed, however. Seger starts and finishes with two "she done me wrong" songs -- "Sunspot Baby" and "Mary Lou," in which his woman not only leaves him, but takes his car, jewelry, credit cards, etc. And I'm not sure what he was thinking with "Ship of Fools," a heavy-handed excursion into boating disaster songs. (Maybe Gordon Lightfoot decided he could release "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald" based on this tune.) The very fine "Mainstreet" is lost is this mediocre grouping.
Still worth purchasing, just be prepared to program your CD player a bit.
