"Long before he became a paragon of Midwestern meat and potatoes rock, Bob Seger was one of hundreds of musicians in the '60s trying to break out of the club scene in his native Detroit. He had the talent and ambition but had to find the right sound to push him into the theaters and stadiums that he fills on the regular today. That meant trying out different styles and approaches, cutting them to 45s and hoping for some radio airplay. This new collection pulls together the material from a handful of singles that Seger and his band The Last Heard recorded during a feverish year-long stretch. It fleshes out a period of his career that he often wishes we would forget about. He has little to be embarrassed about as the majority of the tracks here are killers, a blend of R&B swing and hard charging garage rock fit for dancing, drinking and carousing. There are diversions into pastiches of Dylan ('Persecution Smith'), James Brown ('Sock It To Me Santa') and the Beach Boys ('Florida Time') as a way to catch commercial lightning in a bottle but even those come off as more spirited and charming than some of the Nuggets rabble." - Paste Magazine
