(ITS) Syndicated radio show In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 40th anniversary of Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Live Bullet, the pivotal live album by Detroit journeyman rocker Bob Seger. The show sent the following details

With sales to date of over six million copies, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's April 1976 double live album Live Bullet may be the biggest-selling album in history to have missed the Top 30 initially. Live Bullet sales took off after Bob Seger's breakthrough Night Moves, his tenth album, skyrocketed later that same year.

1968's "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" hit single had been the "bullet" in the chamber, but during the ensuing seven years Seger added a clip full of songs including "Beautiful Loser"," the rapid-fire rocker "Katmandu", and the secret weapon "Turn the Page". As Bob explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard, playing with live ammo those next several years was challenging to prove that Seger was not firing blanks .

Bob Seger had this to say, "After "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" did rather well, the next seven years or so were a little dry, and I've always called those years, 'Bob learns to make albums', because that's a whole different thing than making a hit single. I had to develop my writing because I was on the road constantly, where I really didn't have much of a chance to write. We were doing like 250 nights a year... At some point I said to myself, 'I really enjoy doing this. I really don't want to have a what musicians call a 'day gig'." Stream the special here.
