Background: Released in 1982, The Distance was the twelfth studio album by Bob Seger.

The album reached #5 on the U.S. album charts and #45 on the UK chart. gave The Distance a 4 star review:

The Distance was hailed as a return to form upon the time of its release and, in many ways, might be a little stronger, a little more consistent than its predecessor, Against the Wind. Still, this album has the slickest production Bob Seger had yet granted, and the biggest hit single on The Distance wasn’t written by him, it was a cover of Rodney Crowell’s “Shame on the Moon.” … Now, that doesn’t mean The Distance is a bad record, since it isn’t — it’s filled with first-rate heartland rockers — but Seger at his best could balance rockers with ballads, or if he concentrated on rockers, it would be more ferocious than this. This album is simply solid, a nice addition to his catalog, but not a knockout.
