Bob Seger’s Debut On Forgotten Favorites Friday

If Night Moves is the first Bob Seger song you remember hearing, you have a lot of company.  In 1977 that song rose to #4 on the charts and put Seger’s career in high gear.

Of course, that’s not where it all started.  He was 21 when he first recorded in 1966 and formed the Bob Seger System two years later.

Just before Christmas 1968, Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man first appeared on the charts.  The song became Bob’s first national hit, peaking at #17 in early 1969.  Future Eagle, Glenn Frey contributes backing vocals and guitar.

Take a look at Bob Seger on the Happenin’ TV show.  Paul Revere and Mark Lindsay can also be seen in this black & white clip:
