Since the heady rock and roll days of the seventies, Bachman-Turner Overdrive sold over 30 million records in over 20 countries. Their music still stands as strong today as it ever has. Now, to the sure delight of BTO fans everywhere, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner release a 2-CD live set called, Bachman & Turner Live at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC.

While this is the bands fifth live album, technological advancements make this their best one to date. Fans are going to love this set as it is chock full of all their great hits (plus some) resulting in close to two hours of some of the greatest rock and roll money can buy.  You’ll get the hits like You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet, Takin’ Care of Business, Hey You, and Let It Ride, plus many, many others. Also included in the 20-song set list are some songs from their self-titled album that came out shortly before this 2010 performance.  Those tunes include Rollin’ Along, That’s What It Is, Moonlight Rider, and Waiting Game.

Like I said, fans are absolutely going to love this set.   

Bachman and Turner shared turns at lead vocals with Bachman handling the lead guitar work and Turner thumping the bass.  They were joined by Marc LaFrance on drums, Brent Howard Knudsen on guitars and Mick Dalla-Vee on guitars. Oh, and the great Paul Shaffer helps out on the keys, too.  How cool is that?

The result of this powerhouse of musicians is close to two hours of some of the greatest rock and roll money can buy.  You’ll get the hits like You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet, Takin’ Care of Business, Hey You, and Let It Ride, plus many, many others. Like I said, fans are absolutely going to love this set.

As if this great set of CD’s isn’t enough, the performance was caught on film and will be released later this year on DVD and Blu-ray.  THAT’s great icing on this musical cake, my friends.

Until that time comes, this CD set will have you takin’ care of business in fine style.
