Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band

This is Detroit Rock City week at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. I'm selecting some of the best rock gems from the Motor City and the song of the day for October 4, 2012 is the 'Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser' one-two punch by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band. This is the Live Bullet version recorded at Detroit's Cobo Hall in 1975.

Dearborn, Michigan's very own Bob Seger recorded one hell of a live album in 1975, which was released in 1976 as Live Bullet. The 1970s produced some pretty good live albums like Frampton Comes Alive by Peter Frampton and Alive by Kiss. You can get out of my rock room if you think Foghat Live belongs on a "best of" list for live albums. Some artists are best left unrecorded.

If you've never heard Live Bullet then take a listen to today's selection of 'Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser'. I was going to pick this for my one-two punch week, but I decided to save it for Detroit Rock City week. Both songs were released in 1975 on the Beautiful Loser album, but 'Beautiful Loser' is the opening track while 'Travelin' Man' is the first song on Side Two. Speaking of the Beautiful Loser album, it features a killer Tina Turner cover of 'Nutbush City Limits', which is the opening track on Live Bullet. Enjoy!
