4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Dec 10 2012

A good bit of Canadiana here. Randy drives this post-Guess Who effort and succeeds. Each tune is great, anthemic, and brings to mind great show at Grey Cup 97

4.0 out of 5 stars It Has A Few Nuggets! Oct. 6 2012
By Peter Gueckel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I bought this for Takin' Care of Business, which has become a rock classic. I discovered a couple of others, namely Roll on Down the Highway, Lookin' Out for #1, Gimme your Money Please and Take it like a Man. Surely, it has a few nuggets!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great compliation of an underrated band Jan. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Best Of B.T.O. (So Far) is a great retrospective of a band who wrote some of the best rock songs of the mid-70's but is primarily known for their three-chord classic "Takin' Care Of Business" and their catchy #1 single "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet." However, many of the other tracks here such as "Hey You", "Take It Like A Man", "Roll Down The Highway" and "Let It Ride", were great hard rock songs released at a time when mellow rock was still popular. But B.T.O. weren't just a hard rock band. The tracks "Blue Collar" and "Lookin' Out For #1" were mellower, jazzier songs with the former featuring some great jamming at the song's conclusion. Upon hearing these tracks, it's hard to believe that they're the same band who did "Takin' Care Of Business." Other great tracks here include the killer instrumental "Free Wheelin'" and "Gimme Your Money Please." A great compliation. Not Fragile is also a great album from these guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise and Fun May 10 2004
By Joe Lee
Format:Audio CD
Very good remastered sound, and the final three tracks, including the terrific instrumental "Free Wheelin,'" weren't on the original. Sure, "Taking Care of Business" is played far too often on the radio (and in TV commercials, for that matter). "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," "Let It Ride" and "Hey You" are the other heavyweight hits from these heavyset rockers, and you've heard them many times as well. But "Blue Collar" and "Looking Out For #1" are two excellent mellow BTO tunes...Randy Bachman, just as he did in the Guess Who, displayed an ability to play with great finesse as well as fire. Throw in "Gimme Your Money Please" and "Roll On Down The Highway," both with high-powered Fred Turner vocals, and you have a winner. Highly recommended...you'll really enjoy the overplayed hits alongside the equally strong lesser-known stuff on this disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good BTO collection Dec 13 2000
By Brian D. Rubendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, Bachman Turner Overdrive was derivative and not a terribly original band. Not to mention the fact that "Takin' Care of Business" is one of classic rock's most overplayed songs. But that doesn't mean they didn't have their moments. And most of their best moments are collected here. Give 'em this, the boys knew how to write a song with a catchy hook, as they do with such classic cuts as "Roll on Down the Highway," "Hey You," "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" and "Let it Ride." This stuff may not be high art, but its loads of fun.
My only complaint is that this "Remastered" album has apparently taken the place of the old "B.T.O.'s Greatest" collection, which included the excellent later songs "Rock and Roll Nights" and "Jamacia." Since "Greatest" also includes the above mentioned songs, I'd recommend searching out a used copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta buy this.... April 9 2000
By Ed Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
....if you want to hear simply the best, heavy metal, rock'n'roll music there is. All the great BTO hits are on this CD, the cuts still sound great, and just listening to Fred Turner render the vocals on "Roll On Down The Highway" and "Let It Ride" alone makes this worth the price of admission. Buy this now, and let me give you some advice - if you hear BTO is playing in your area, GO! - they sound better than they ever have.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet Dec 22 2005
By Tony James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This compilation isn't bad from a guitarist/singer/songwriter with the storied history of Randy Bachman. Randy joined a group in 1960 known as "Chad Allen and the Expressions". They had a hit with "Shakin' all Over". When Chad left, the group was renamed " The Guess Who " Guess who was used as a gimmick on an early recording as "Guess Who?" and the name stuck. When Randy left "The Guess Who" he started a group named "Brave Belt" that put out a two sided hit "Another Way Out/Dunrobin's Gone". This band morphed into "Bachman-Turner Overdrive" or just plain old "BTO". While many of their commercial hits are here, this is a band that churned out at least eleven albums (a couple without Bachman) including a live in Japan offering with the added bonus of Mountain's "Mississippi Queen" on it. Randy also had bands with the names of "Union" and "Ironhorse" both of which put out albums as well as recordings under his own name. In addition to the playlist on this album other songs that should have been included are "Not Fragile, Sledgehammer, Find Out About Love, Quickchange Artist and Hold Back the Water" to name a few. So much for a complete set. I was lucky enough to see a reformed "Guess Who" this past year and the biggest cheers went up for songs like "Taking Care of Business, You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" and "Roll on Down the Highway". Some people may consider "BTO" commercial and overplayed and on certain tunes its probably true but the audience and Bachman knows what they like. Straight ahead "working man" rock and roll. Now if we can just get "BTO" to put their past squabbles behind them and reform. What a blast from the past that would be.

5.0 out of 5 stars hard to explain Jan. 30 2006
By .Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
bachman turner overdrive the band that will be remembered most of all for the song "you ain't seen nothin' yet" just like steppenwolf are remembered for "born to be wild" but just like steppenwolf "bachman turner overdrive" are more than a one hit wonder band that made some gigantic slices of ballsy rock

one being the song that featured in the smash hit film [a knights tale]

"takin' care of business" a rockin' tune to shake away those cobwebs

on this album you get the greatest cause of all

"lookin' out for number one" only kidding caring for others is important too but a classic tune anyhoo

"down down" not the status quo hit this is a rockin tune

the other highlights are "can we all come together"

being a very innuendo song

and the beating of the drum "jamica" MAN

backman turner overdrive proved to me that's there's more to commerical selling of a song and that you can make classic sounding songs at a drop of a hat..."you ain't seen nothin' yet"
