By the time I was in High School in the mid '80's I thought Bob Seger was sort of running on fumes compared to the earlier big hits I was familiar with. Years later a friend told me that a lot of his early '70's stuff that didn't make the national charts at all was very tight & worth giving a listen to, so I did, skeptically. He was right!! Bob rocked pretty gritty and hard back then.

I've gotta say, though, that even when I was in High School I appreciated the double entendre he laid down in "Strut": "They do respect her, but, they love to watch her strut!!"

Mosaic usually uses great photographs, but I wish they'd have used a picture of Woody from the '62-'64 period (there are many). The cover for this box is an image from about 1974. Really too bad to mess up a detail like that on one of the great big band boxes ever. Desert island stuff!
