EDITORS’ NOTES

Released on the heels of a breakthrough 1976, Stranger in Town marked Seger’s first album after becoming a bona fide star. Not that you’d know it outside, say, “Hollywood Nights,” which tells tale of a homesick Midwestern boy looking out at L.A. For the most part, Stranger sticks to the same passionate rave-ups (“Feel Like a Number,” “Old Time Rock and Roll”) and hard-bitten ballads (“Still the Same,” “Till It Shines”) that paved Seger’s road to fame in the first place—a strong but humble sound that still resonates.
