The durable Bachman-Turner Overdrive is one of those bands with more greatest-hits collections than actual studio albums. Greatest Hits digs a bit deeper than the definitive Best of B.T.O. (So Far), which was released at the height of the band's fame but passes over stompers such as "Give Me Your Money Please" and "Blue Collar" for faceless late-era (sans Randy Bachman) tunes like "Can We All Come Together."…

Following his 1970 departure from the Guess Who, guitarist Randy Bachman recorded a solo album (Axe) and planned a project with ex-Nice keyboardist Keith Emerson (later canceled due to illness) before forming Bachman-Turner Overdrive in 1972. Originally called "Brave Belt," the metal group was comprised of singer/guitarist Bachman, fellow Guess Who alum Chad Allan, bassist C.F. "Fred" Turner, and Randy's brother, drummer Robbie; after a pair of LPs (Brave Belt I and Brave Belt II), Allan was replaced by another Bachman brother, guitarist Tim, and in homage to the trucker's magazine Overdrive, the unit became BTO…

Freeways was the final Randy Bachman album of the first BTO era, released in 1977 after their first of many "greatest-hits" collections put much of their chart activity in a tidy package on 1976's Best of B.T.O. (So Far)…

Eleven years after their 1973 eponymous debut on Mercury, Randy Bachman brings brother Tim Bachman, C.F. Turner, and original Chad Allan/Guess Who drummer Garry Peterson together for this very decent set, also self-titled Bachman-Turner Overdrive, on a Mercury subsidiary, Nashville's Compleat Records…

After gaining some recognition from the success of the band's previous album, Bachman-Turner Overdrive got around to recording Not Fragile. Not only had one of the three Bachman brothers (Tim, the rhythm guitarist) left the band to BTO's advantage, but Randy Bachman and C.F. Turner had clearly grown musically…

Classic rock band from Winnipeg, Canada, formed in 1972 by ex-The Guess Who guitarist Randy Bachman and his younger brother, Rob Bachman, on drums. At first they were called Brave Belt. They changed their name when vocalist Fred Turner joined. Tim Bachman (also a brother) joined on guitar…

The ultimate meat-and-potatoes rock band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive hardly changed the face of rock & roll with their output, but the everyman approach that shone through in their hits in the early '70s, which include the classic rock radio staples "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," "Roll on Down the Highway," "Let It Ride," and the extra-ubiquitous "Takin' Care of Business," makes BTO somewhat of a guilty pleasure for many…

Two discs, 31 tracks – that's a lotta Bachman-Turner Overdrive even for some die-hard fans – but that's what Anthology offers, complete with remastered sound, liner notes, and a handful of rarities, including the previously unreleased "Stayed Awake All Night" and four "quad mixes." These rarities aren't enticing for anybody but hardcore followers and, really, most listeners will be better served by Greatest Hits, which contains all the radio hits…

With all due respect to Randy Bachman, this album shows clearly where the real heart and soul of BTO lies. C.F. Turner's vocals and bass are better than ever, and with Robin Bachman and Blair Thornton back on board, the band sounds as good as it has since Not Fragile…
