Our CD reissue pick: Bob Seger

Bob Seger doesn’t remember a lot of specifics about the nights at the Boston Garden in 1980 when he recorded part of his classic live album, “Nine Tonight,’’ aside from the fact that it was “a lot of fun.’’ But he does remember why he picked the Hub as a location.

“Every night in Boston is a good night, it’s a great rock ’n’ roll city,’’ says the gravelly voiced rocker on the phone from his Michigan home. “As a matter of fact, I think the Boston show [at the TD Garden last April] was the highlight of the tour, and I’m not just saying that because I’m talking to you. The crowd was just crazy. It was pretty special.’’

Seger has reissued digitally remastered versions of both of his famous concert keepsakes, “Nine Tonight’’ and “Live Bullet’’ (with one bonus track apiece), and also recently released a compilation, “Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets.’’ The impetus for all three came when Seger - one of the last big iTunes holdouts - decided to join the downloading fray in September. “They finally told me, ‘We’re going to start to download’ and I just didn’t feel like I wanted to cut my record company out of this.’’

Seger and his Silver Bullet Band hit the DCU Center in Worcester on Tuesday and he doesn’t rule out another tour to support his next new album which he says will be released next fall. “I decide that tour by tour,’’ says the 66-year-old rocker. “If I think I can do it again, I’ll do it again.’’
