Way before The Silver Bullet Band Bob Seger Rocked. Earliest recording I remember went back to The Last Heard and 1966’s “East Side Story”, “Persecution Smith” and what would become his signature song for all time “Heavy Music” in 67′. Then it went on to The Bob Seger System. This man never stopped, he only got better.

Released in 1966 on Detroit’s Revilot Records.
“Open the Door to Your Heart” legal name was “Walk Right In”. And I was lucky enough to have found it at all on You Tube.
The song went to #2 on the R&B chart and #27 on Billboard’s 100. Later that year he also did well with “Somebody (Somewhere) Needs You”. Then he moved on to Atco Records but never had another song chart. Many wondered why he was never signed to Motown considering he already had a million hit seller.
What an awesome voice that fit in perfectly with the Motown sound but sadly just another artist totally ignored and overlooked by Berry Gordy.
Crawford debuted her first single with Motown that she wrote in 1963, “Forget About Me” then with “My Smile Is Just a Frown (Turned Upside Down)” Written by Smokey Robinson soon following and charting at #39 on the R&B chart. When her next in 64′ “When Someone’s Good To You” didn’t set Gordy’s own world that was strictly in his mind ablaze she wasn’t resigned and as the same story with a lot of other talented artists that came through the doors of Hitsville nobody ended up being good to her.
Before there was even a “Motown”.
