Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's much-loved "Live Bullet" album will live again, on vinyl, to celebrate its 45th anniversary.
The 1976 concert souvenir -- originally released April 12, 1976 from hometown shows the previous Sept. 4-5 at Cobo Hall -- will be re-released on June 11 on a remastered two-LP set. Buyers will have the option of standard black or orange-and-red swirl vinyl, the latter available only via independent record stores and online.
Ranked No. 26 on Rolling Stone magazine's 60 Greatest Live Albums of All Time, "Live Bullet" features 14 songs, including a medley of "Travelin' Man" and "Beautiful Loser" that's been a staple of Seger concerts ever since. The album also includes covers of Van Morrison's "I've Been Working," Bo Diddley's "Bo Diddley" and Chuck Berry's "Let It Rock," as well as the definitive take of Seger's own "Turn the Page."
The album has been certified five-times platinum since its release, while the group's rendition of Tina Turner's "Nutbush City Limits" hit No. 69 on the Billboard Hot 100, Seger's second highest-charting single to that point.
