VIDEO FEED: The Bob Seger System Live 1970

posted Saturday Jan 31st, 2015

When it comes to balls-out Detroit rock'n roll, there's definitely NO SHORTAGE, but the amount of early clips of the Bob Seger System was sadly underrepresented, until now as three incredible color clips have just surfaced, which we've got right here for you today on VoT! If you're only familiar with "the Seeg" via his "Old Time Rock'n Roll" or "Against The Wind" hits, then you're really in for a shock, as Seger cut his teeth in the mid 1960s Hideout scene in Detroit, releasing singles chock full of angst and incredible energy that would have been impossible to miss in that era, surrounded by the likes of the MC5, The Stooges, SRC, Amboy Dukes, et al. Although he re-recorded his first big hit, "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" in the 1970s after his first brush with mainstream success, the early version is a stone cold classic, perfectly delivered powerful rock'n roll that's as undeniable as anything released by their peers.

So if you've been left cold with Bob Seger's Chevrolet-appropriated "Like A Rock" ad campaign a little too, long, by all means cleanse that pallette with these three incredible videos that have just been made available to the public via Youtube, and just try and wrap your head around those insane extra bass drums, connected to tubes, right here:
