Bob Seger hasn't made an album for 11 years, but reacquainting him with audiences shouldn't be tough: Truth is, he never went away. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's previous collection of new material, "It's a Mystery," entered The Billboard 200 at No. 27 in November 1995. Since then, it's sold just 537,000 copies. But his 1994 "Greatest Hits" with the Silver Bullet Band has been camped out on Billboard's Top Pop Catalog chart for 616 weeks now; SoundScan has it at 7.7 million and counting. And now there's "Face the Promise," out Sept. 12.
