About this copy: This copy of Stranger in Town is a still sealed limited edition picture disc pressing, issued in the U.S. in 1978.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. The shrink wrap is 100% intact, with no rips, tears or holes. The cover does not have any kind of cutout marks.
A nice copy of a somewhat scarce Bob Seger LP and as nice a copy as you’re ever likely to find.
Background: In the late 1970s, collectors were showing a lot of interest in picture discs, and record companies began to issue a number of limited edition picture discs pressings of both older and then-new titles. The fad was a short-lived one, as collectors balked at paying nearly twice the retail price for albums they likely already owned.
Over time, many of these titles have become quite scarce. A number of these titles found their way into cutout bins, and they’re often found with saw marks, cut corners, or drill holes in the covers.
Stranger in Town was Bob Seger’s tenth album, and it reached #4 on the U.S. album charts and was certified platinum by the RIAA. The album featured three singles that reached the Top 20 – “Still the Same,” “Hollywood Nights,” and “We’ve Got Tonite.”
