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

This comp has too many alternate versions (quad mixes, live versions) to be definitive. Gold has all the standard album tracks, which is always preferred.
