Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967

Read "Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bob Seger has been stubbornly reticent about the distiribution of his catalog in the wake of the CD and the rise of streaming services, so the issue of his early output on Heavy Music: The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967 is a sign of astute archiving.

Mike Bloomfield: From His Head to His Heart to His Hands
