Mr. Pop Culture -
Canada gave us some terrific music – and BTO was right up there with the best of them
If you grew up in the 1970′s and listened to top-40 or album oriented radio – you loved Bachman, Turner Overdrive – with Randy Bachman and company. Their rock music was catchy and infectuous with hits such as “Takin’ Care Of Business,” “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and “Let It Ride.” Simply great stuff. I loved these guys and we couldn’t wait for their greatest hits to be released.
It finally came as Mercury records released “The Best Of BTO (So Far)” back in August of 1976. If you don’t have it, get it. Or download their hits. Don’t forget “Hey You” and “Roll On Down The Highway.”
BTW – The last single for BTO was from that same time – summer of 1976 with “Gimmie Your Money Please.” Not a big charter – but – just in case you wanted to know.
