Transmission Impossible [no label, CD1 and 2 of 4
Plus Bonus Disc 4: Bob and the Cleveland connection from 1973.
Various dates and venues. Very good FM broadcasts.

Thanks to analogkid6103 for sharing the tracks on the net.

analogkid6103 noted:

Despite having released classic album after classic album during his lengthy career, the best way to witness the extraordinary power of Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band remains to be in a live setting. Indeed, the great man’s most successful record of all has been his still hugely popular 1976 release, Live Bullet.

This enticing three-CD set features a selection of FM radio broadcasts of live shows from Seger and his group recorded between 1974 and 1983 - the period which, for most fans, was Bob’s ‘Golden Era’. Kicking off with a show played at the famous Ebbet’s Field club in Denver, CO, at the end of ’74, moving to his 1980 gig from the Cobo Arena in his hometown of Detroit, MI, and culminating with a classic concertfrom Hartford, CT in 1983.

Plus only in analogkid Deluxe edition I dug around and found more shit cause thats what I do: It is a set from 1973 which makes this a 10-year journey through the music of Bob and the fellas from Motown. Detroit was not always a poster city for urban renewal. But what of Lazarus?
