Bachman Turner Overdrive ll

We continued this morning with the second record by Canadian hard rockers Bachman Turner Overdrive, the first one of theirs to make a splash commercially, rising to #4 on the Billboard album chart.

We knew Randy Bachman from his days with the Guess Who as their lead guitarist and hit songwriter. BTO II is a family affair with Randy’s brothers Tim(drums) and Bob(guitar) in the band which also featured Fred Turner on bass, sharing lead vocals with Randy.

Two songs from BTO II have become timeless classics, “Takin’ Care of Business” and “Let It Ride”, the latter of which we heard on Side 1 which also featured some nice guitar on Randy’s “Welcome Home”.
