In 1974, I badly wanted, and could not find in my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, a somewhat obscure album from a Detroit band getting some regional airplay.
Likewise, my pal who went to college in another town could not find a Babe Ruth album he wanted. So we looked for, and eventually found, each other’s albums.
The album I wanted? “Seven,” the seventh album from a still-young Bob Seger.
The song I had to have? “Get Out of Denver.”
The next year, in 1975, I had one of those “What was that?” moments while listening to the FM radio of the day.
“Katmandu,” Bob Seger, from “Beautiful Loser,” 1975.
