"Smokin' O.P.'s" is an album by American rock singer/songwriter Bob Seger, released in 1972 (see 1972 in music). The album was reissued on CD by Capitol Records in 2005. It is currently the earliest Bob Seger album available on CD. The cover art is a parody of Lucky Strike cigarettes. Smokin' O.P.'s refers to Smokin' Other People's Songs. Most of the tracks on this release are covers of songs written by other artists.
