The Compact Disc Digital Audio System offers the best possible sound reproduction - on a small, convenient sound carrier unit. The Compact Discís superior performance is the result of laser-optical scanning, combined with digital playback, and is independent of the technology used in making the original recording. This recording technology is identified on the back cover by a three-letter code:

DDD = Digital tape recorder used during session recording, mixing and/or editing, and mastering (transcription)
ADD = Analogue tape recorder used during session recording, digital tape recorder used during subsequent mixing and/or editing, and during mastering (transcription)
AAD = Analogue tape recorder used during session recording and subsequent mixing and/or editing, digital tape recorder used during mastering (transcription)

In storing and handling the Compact Disc, you should apply the same care as with conventional records. No further cleaning will be necessary if the Compact Disc is always held by the edges and is replaced in its case directly after playing. Should the Compact Disc become soiled by fingerprints, dust or dirt, it can be wiped (always in a straight line, from center to edge) with a clean and lint-free, soft, dry cloth. No solvent or abrasive cleaner should ever be used on the disc.
If you follow these suggestions, the Compact Disc will provide a lifetime of pure listening enjoyment.

Worth it for the historic title track alone
Review written by John Fitzgerald, March 13th, 2005

Rick plays on six tracks here, the best one by far is the popular album's title track. Though used much in commercials etc. there's no denying that this track has become a defining moment in Vito's recording career, and will most likely remain one for some time. You really do need to hear the quietly building verses sections to fully appreciate this track as they lead in to Vito's great slide stretches (and he has some overlooked touches during those quieter moments as well). As for the other five, "Miami" is a mid tempo pounder, "The ring" is a "Night moves" type piano ballad, "Tightrope" is an electric synther that tries to be dramatic but it's unsuccessful at that attempt. There are some good RV howlings on this track but it's not enough. "The aftermath" is a forced rocker that doesn't have a good hook but "Somewhere tonight" is a good piano led slow ballad from the "Chances are" (with Martina McBride)/"We've got tonight" school of Seger led ballads, though not nearly as strong as either of those tracks but it's still good enough to be a highlight here. The CD version of this album came with a bonus track, a live version of CCR's "Fortunate son". I think the reason this recording doesn't work is because that material fits Seger TOO well so it can't deliver on it's high promise. In case you were wondering, no, Rick is not on this recording as this recording must not have been done on the "Like a rock" tour (which Rick was on) because the CD liner notes do break the musician listings down for us here and Rick is not listed on that one. He is also NOT on the
opening popular hit single shouter "American storm" (though strangely, he WAS in the music video for this song "faking it" for the video as he had done in Seger's "Shakedown" video as he was not on that recording either).The remaining two tracks not discussed yet here are the fast rocking "Sometimes" (which is the most rocking track present though it's electronics smooth it down and water it over though it does have a good hook) and "It's you" (which is a chirpy piano led clave tapper). Though I'd say "The fire inside" is the best Seger album to feature Vito overall (and even though he's on half as many songs as Vito is on here), this is essential Vito listening for the title track to "Like a rock". Get ready to be impressed as this could've served as an audition for his Fleetwood Mac job on it's own.
