Has anybody actually listened to his catalog? From what I can tell, George couldn't even be bothered with him. Does Seger's catalog offer anything other than the hits that everybody has heard (but has heard less of over the years, unless one lives in the Detroit area).
Apparently, according to the below, his recorded legacy is kind of fading away. Which the author considers to be a bad thing, since he thinks Seger is an all-time great.
I found his debut album (released in 1969 but seemingly recorded in early 1968) on Youtube and gave it a try. Pleasant enough Cream-y bluesy-psych of the period, I guess. The title track and Train Man kind of distinguish themselves.
Dare I press onward? All I stand to lose is the time I could have spent listening to something better.
