Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews


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!!!

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...
