SEGER LIBERATION ARMY: Heavy Music b/w Chain Smokin’: 7″

Not sure what Bob Seger needs to be liberated from besides the ’80s and ’90s, but that’s exactly what this single does, covering two numbers that I have to assume (with very little actual knowledge on the subject of Seger’s career output) are from the late ’60s/early ’70s days when his band probably opened for the MC5, whose sound was a slightly raunchier version of the white R & B present here. In other words (in case that wasn’t really a sentence), MC5-era Detroit rock‘n’roll from the hand of the youth.
