The Definitive Collection

By the time this 2008 Definitive Collection was released, Canadian rockers Bachman-Turner Overdrive had more greatest-hits packages on the shelf (11) than studio albums (nine). Essentially a slimmer, single-disc version of 2005's two-disc Gold, the main hits are well covered here, from the eternal good-time anthems "Takin' Care of Business" and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" to road-ready rockers like "Let It Ride" and "Roll on Down the Highway." Broadcasting out of their Winnipeg home, BTO were a big part of North America's 1970s soundtrack and their riff-rocking highlights remain staples of classic rock radio. This Definitive Collection, while rock-solid, has already been issued a number of times before under different titles, with slight variances in track listings. Business has definitely been taken care of.
How many of these retread compilations do we need from this band? I bet BTO has more greatest hit compilations than any band from the 70s. If you have one of them you have them all. Give us a break . . . at least put out a compilation of "B-sides". Sheesh!
Good sounds, lousy compilation
Really, you can do far better picking from BTO albums at random.
This album rocks!
The boys are back in a big way!!!
