“Stranger In Town” by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band - album review

TJR says

The tenth album in ten years from the Detroit-born singer-songwriter-guitarist, released the day before his 33rd birthday in May, 1978. Despite being on the billing, his own Silver Bullet Band backed him on only four of the songs - “Hollywood Nights” (#12), “Still The Same” (#4), “Feel Like A Number” and “Brave Strangers” - the rest being entrusted to Alabama's famous Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. What's all that about? Sounds like a horrbile concept to me. The album's other two singles - “We’ve Got Tonight” (#13) and “Old Time Rock and Roll” (#28) - are regarded as classics in his catalogue. In a poll organised by the Recording Industry Association of America, the latter was named as one of the songs of the century. Rock n Roll? It sounds to me like the kind of Rock n Roll that Rock n Rollers play when they're 85. Keep well away from these people mates…
