The Bob Seger System’s Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man title track was Seger’s first hit record, reaching #17 on the Hot 100. The album’s anti-war anthem, “2+2=?”, was released in 1968 as the first single from Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man. It was first released independently by Seger and became a regional hit in Detroit, Buffalo and Orlando and was picked up by Capitol Records marking his first major label release.
Both albums have been remastered by Robert Vosgien, Capitol Studios Mastering. Seger is Capitol Records longest-tenured solo artist in label’s storied history.
