This has the same hard driving, "dashboard, highway driving" music that turned me on to Bachman Turner Overdrive in the 70's. As Bachman Turner, they sound just as great. Randy Bachman can still rock on the guitar, and Fred Turner's voice and bass still sound great and solid! Can't wait to here more...
Like they never left
Randy and Fred were Bachman-Turner Overdrive (sorry Robbie, Blair, Tim, etc.). This tune says they are BTO again - only lawyers say they aren't. This tune dips you back into the soothing waters of the 1970's - it's a time machine. The guys have never sounded better and I hope for more on the upcoming album.
About Bachman & Turner
Randy Bachman left Bachman-Turner Overdrive following the group’s Freeways album in 1977 and tracked and released a solo album, Survivor, in 1978, then formed the short-lived Ironhorse in 1979, sticking around for two albums before renaming the group Union. Union, which also included former BTO bandmate Fred Turner, released a single album, On Strike, in 1981. Bachman and Turner next joined a reunited BTO for 1984’s Bachman-Turner Overdrive and the resulting tour, which led to a live album, Live! Live! Live!, in 1985. Various versions of BTO stayed on the road through 1991 when Bachman finally split the band for good, although one configuration or another of the group was active on the touring circuit through 2004. The entire infrastructure around the band, including its touring and management company, was officially dissolved in 2005. Bachman and Turner next joined forces in 2009, recording a new album together, the self-titled Bachman & Turner, which was released a year later in 2010. ~ Steve Leggett
