Album Review

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. Here, those are surrounded by album tracks, ranging from pedestrian to pretty good, actually. BTO doesn't really have any hidden gems, per se, yet there's enough good stuff here to satisfy fans of the big hits who want to hear a little bit more. That doesn't mean it's perfect, or even consistently entertaining, but it does prove that there's more than just the hits to BTO.

Customer Reviews

Canuck Classic!

One of the most underrated bands in rock is BTO! Randy Bachman is also one of the most underrated guitarists and songwriters in the rock genre. The album is a must-have for rock fans and if you only own one BTO album, this should be it. From Takin' Care of Business to Don't Get Yourself in Trouble and the jazzy Lookin' Out for Number One, you'll be listening to this one over and over!

BTO Rocks!!!!!!!!

If all you know is Takin' Care of Business and You Ain't Seen Nothin yet then you don't know BTO. One of the most underrated bands in Canadian rock. This collection contains most of the Not Fragile album (a classic) and even includes the Alice Cooper penned Down To The Line which was never included in any of thier albums till now.

This is the one BTO album to own and has all you'll ever need to hear over and over again.

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...
