Bob Seger recordings
P-4836 (S96012) (US promo 45)
first single released from 1980's Against
the Wind peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #8 in Canada. Almost ten years in the making,
"Fire Lake" was originally intended for inclusion on 1975's Beautiful Loser, but failed to make
the cut. Seger started writing
the song as early as 1971.
Glenn Frey, Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmidt of The Eagles supplied
backing vocals. A live version
appears on 1981's Nine Tonight.
