Video Diary: Bob Seger and The Last Heard -- East Side Story

We return today with the same song we featured yesterday, East Side Story. Here we have the original version, released just months before the St. Louis Union somehow came to the song. Here a beardless Bob Seger performs his first single, an original composed by Seger himself, on the local Detroit TV show, Swinging Time.


  1. The song's main riff has a real I Can Only Give You Everything vibe that I don't pick up on the Union's version. Great singing here. Also, the bass is sweet in this version too.

  2. Hmmm, you are right. That was released on single in the US in '66, just don't know when.

  3. I just picked up the original release of this single, on Hideout Records, for only $8.
