Michigan native Bob Seger is slow to catch up with music technologies and how listeners and fans acquire music. That is now changing as he has finally released several of his albums on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. The move was made largely thanks to fans who have been pressing for the music to hit the latest platform of consumption.
Seger released a total of 13 albums which includes eight studio efforts, three compilation sets and two live recordings. Those albums are available on Spotify, Apple Music, Napster, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music and Slacker Radio and nine of those titles are also available to download. In 2011, he finally released music via iTunes late in the digital game. In addition, more albums will be released to those platforms in the future. This is good news for fans new and old alike as his early albums are difficult to come by even in physical format. YouTube is also a scarce source to find quality Seger material.
In Seger's catalog, his 1994 Greatest Hits set is his best-selling in the U.S. since point of sale tracking began in 1991 selling over 9.5 million copies. Altogether, the "Turn the Page" rocker has sold 22 million in the United States alone.
