Randy Bachman is one of the founding fathers of world class rock & roll in Canada. His work with The Guess Who helped establish the Canadian music scene at a time where virtually all of the music was either from The United States or Britain. In 1971, Bachman was looking for a new singer for his band, Brave Belt, and former Winnipegger Neil Young suggested he call Fred (CF) Turner. It was this group that eventually became Bachman Turner Overdrive, a.k.a BTO. In 1977, Bachman left after a string of monumental hits including "Takin' Care of Business" and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet." Fast forward many years to when Bachman was working on a new solo album in 2009. He invited the recently retired Turner to add some vocals. Bachman was so inspired with the results he put aside his solo project and invited Turner to pool their new songs. The result is "Bachman & Turner!". When they revealed the music of the new band for the first time, it was almost as if BTO had taken a six month holiday in 1977 and then went back into the studio.

This was a classic arena rock show: Blue Öyster Cult opened, followed by Paul Rodgers, and then Bachman and Turner hit the stage playing to an appreciative hometown audience. Here are the BTO hits, plus American WOman from The Guess Who -- the new Bachman & Turner songs were not sanctioned for broadcast.
