Bachman-turner Overdrive | The Best Of Bto (so Far) | 1976 Vinyl Lp:
The Best Of BTO (So Far)
Artist: Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Title: The Best Of BTO (So Far
Release Year: 1976
Label: Mercury Records
Catalog Number: SRM-1-1101
Format: 33 RPM • 12” Album • Stereo
This short-but-sweet "best-of" culls the essential songs from BTO’s first five studio albums and neatly sums up a damn good singles band. This collection spotlights the underrated guitar prowess of Randy Bachman, formerly of The Guess Who — but that understated style isn’t what these beer-bellied longhairs are best remembered for. Rather, the band is better known for their hard-chargin’, foot-stompin' guitar grooves and bassist Turner's often gruff-yet-hooky vocals. (Bachman sometimes sings lead as well).
These chest thumping classics still sound great. By and large, this is definitely the Best Of BTO (ignore the “So Far” part). This is it, folks, and this collection of hits provides some good-time blue collar boogie thunder.
Personnel: Randy Bachman (guitars, lead and backing vocals), Robbie Bachman (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Tim Bachman, Blair Thornton (guitars, backing vocals), Norman Durkee, Little Richard (piano), Barry Keane (percussion), C.F. Turner (bass, backing vocals)
Side One: Side Two: Roll On Down The Highway Take It Like A Man Hey You You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet Lookin’ Out For #1 Blue Collar Gimme Your Money Please Takin’ Care Of Business Let It Ride

This is not a cut-out or a record-club pressing. It is the original issue.
Note: I haven't cleaned this 44-year-old vinyl record because everybody seems to prefer their own methods. I'll leave the cleaning up to the buyer. Also, I'm not a professional vinyl seller or buyer. This comes from my own collection.Enjoy the sale — and good luck!
