As a teaser for his upcoming new hits collection, called Ultimate Hits: Rock And Roll Never Forgets, Bob Seger has released to radio the track "Hey Hey Going Back to Birmingham" -- a cover of the Little Richard classic recorded by the Silver Bullet Band a few years back. Most fans are probably aware of the song from the Beatles' 1964 rendition -- which featured the song in medley with Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City" -- which is how the "Fab Four" saw Richard perform it in Hamburg.
There's no definitive word as to whether Seger's version will be part of the new double-disc Ultimate Hits collection due out next month, as there's still no tracklist announced for the new compilation.
