An Overlooked Gem

I remember first listening to FM album oriented rock n roll when the Night Moves lp was released. My first impression as a teenager was gosh that Night Moves song is so darn slow with overly repetitive chords. Mainstreet left me with a somewhat better impression. However rockers like The Fire Down Below, Come To Poppa, and Rock N Roll Never Forgets always had a hold on me. Somehow though the overplayed title track kept me from digging further into this LP.

Years passed and I began to appreciate Live Bullet- both the ballads and the rockers. I realized that Bob Seger certainly put out some great tunes. Some of his more modern stuff was a little hit and miss but overall the man was a talented songwriter as his words are really touching.

Since I absolutely love the cool edgy blues oriented Fire Down Below, I had to give this Night Moves CD another listen this time with more mature ears. I realized that these nine songs are all very good to excellent. Yes, I even like the slow moving Night Moves as the subject matter I can certainly relate to and carries a certain mysterious air. Most notably, the blend from fast to slow and different dynamics make the Night Moves CD very special.

I guess the lesson learned here is to always keep an open mind and one's appreciation for music is always evolving.
