Bob Seger fans apparently want another live bullet from the Ramblin' Gamblin' Man.
The idea of a live album seems to appeal to a majority of the Seger faithful according to a new poll on his official BobSeger.com web site. Nearly 44 percent of those responding favor a concert recording, with a brand new album following at nearly 41 percent. The idea of a box set of some sort garnered some 12.5 percent of the vote, while a tribute album ranks a distant fourth at less than three percent.
Seger released remastered versions of his two live albums -- 1976's "Live Bullet" and 1981's "Nine Tonight" -- last fall and has recorded extensively, and even done some filming, on tours since then. Last fall he also released an "Ultimate Hits" collection.
Seger's last set of new material, "Face The Promise," came out in 2006, and earlier this year he sounded confident about having another album out sooner rather than later. "I could actually put (an album) out for this fall right now if I wanted to," Seger said before his June induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, "but I"m just going to write a little more before I make a final decision. Among the tunes Seger has lined up at the time were "The Price," a duet with Trisha Yearwood, and a rock ballad called "You Take Me."
Seger is reportedly continuing to write and record, but the prospects for a new album this fall seem slim.
