it'll probably be on some sort of RNC/NRA comp coming out in the near future.

It is called Landing In London.

From MTV.com:

"Oh man, check it out. We were in Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, and we were using the room he usually records in," Harrell laughed. "He was always hanging around, wanting to come in there. And he was always in the kitchenette, getting coffee, so we had to ask him to be on our record."

And so they did. Seger put the coffee cup down long enough to lend his voice to a ballad called "Landing in London." It's unmistakably a 3 Doors Down song: uplifting, melodic, heavy on baritone vocals. In fact, Seventeen Days (which hits stores on February 8) is unmistakably a 3 Doors Down album, which will be good news for fans who threw hissy fits when they learned that the record was being produced by the dude who worked on Disturbed's last album, fearful that he'd make the group's sound too heavy.

Question about Bob Seger's first albums.

Does anybody know if they will ever release any of Bob Seger's first albums on Cd. I think he made about seven of them before Beautiful Loser.

Interesting.I didn't realize that these cd's were out of print. I own the ones that used to be out on CD : Ramblin Gamblin Man, Mongrel, Smokin' OPs, and Seven.

Noah, Back in '72, and Brand New Morning will never be released again as per Bob Seger himself as he doesn't feel they were that good (although Back in '72 is the album Turn the Page was originally recorded on).

I don't know why the albums above would have gone out of print except maybe to try and produce better sounding mixes as I thought they were pretty good (I especially liked Mongrel).

Hope that helps
Michael

Bob Seger's new CD - Face the Promise 9/12

"Face the Promise", set to be released on Sept. 12th, is his first since 1995's "It's a Mystery".

Great news, but I couldn't find a decent link.

Whoa. I thought he had given up music and was making boats or something. Good to see him re-enter the music scene. Hope he's still on his game.

He's also thinking about putting his music online (he's been one of the few big holdouts, along with the Beatles and Zeppelin). Here's a link to a short story:

And it mentions that you can hear the new song at www.bobseger.com

The new song isn't too bad - very "Against the Wind"-ish.

I wonder if the guy still knows how to rock, though. When he rocked he was pretty cool, and, hell - he wrote "Rosalie," which Thin Lizzy turned into a kick ass monster of a song! (And I still haven't heard Bob's version - if he ever even recorded one! I've never been able to find it...)

It's on his Back in '72 album.

I enjoy some of his 70's tunes, but this new one will probably sink like a rock... unless it's all Motown covers.

^Are you kidding? Just my opinion of course, but I think he did his best work in the '80s and '90s. Even "Like a Rock" is a good song if one is somehow able to banish the memory of those wretched truck commercials.

Listen to the all-time masterpiece "The Fire Inside", with E-Streeter Roy Bittan on piano, one of the most rousing, moving songs ever composed.
Among the best of his songs since the turn of the eighties are "Roll Me Away", "Even Now", "American Storm", "Miami", "Somewhere Tonight", "Always in My Heart", "The Long Way Home", "Rite of Passage", "Manhattan", and "In Your Time"; and that's just scratching the surface.

I was being a little silly, but there is no way his post Against the Wind material can touch what he did before that.

Bob had some great songs when he was hot, songs that have stood the test of time - eg Hollywood Nights, Mainstreet etc etc. He got overtaken by the new wave/new romantic musical movement that had its roots in Britain and was popularized in America by bands like Duran Duran.

I loved the '70s Segar (in fact own or have owned Live Bullet on 8-track, album, cassette, and CD).

An '05 Bob Segar recording? I'm also scared.

I'm a huge Segar fan, so I can't wait to hear some new material from him.
