Randy Bachman

Takin' Care of Business, These Eyes and Let It Ride are among the many hits recorded over the years by Randy Bachman, the songwriter-guitarist of Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive fame.

A native of Winnipeg, Randy formed the Guess Who in 1965. His first big hit was Shakin' All Over, followed by These Eyes and several other huge hits, products of a great Canadian music writing team, Bachman and Burton Cummings.

By 1970 the Guess Who had sold more records than the entire Canadian recording industry to that point, even outselling the Beatles that year. Randy left the Guess Who in 1970 and formed a band called Brave Belt.

Two years later, after some personnel changes, Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO) was formed and went on to record several international hits, including Blue Collar, Let It Ride, You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet and Hey You.

The Randy Bachman Song Book CD offers some of the best of theGuess Who and BTO. It was recorded on Salt Spring by the Randy Bachman Band.

The Guess Who made a comeback in 2000, doing a Canadian tour and recording a double CD. Randy now makes his home on Salt Spring Island.

Bachman Turner Overdrive King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents

Release Date: Jul 16, 2004
Label: King Biscuit Entertainment
Distributor: Musicrama
Full title: King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Greatest Hits Live.Bachman-Turner Overdrive: Randy Bachman (vocals, guitar, bass); Blair Thornton, C.F. Turner (guitar); Robbie Bachman (drums).Recorded live in Chicago, Illinois on March 8, 1974. Includes liner notes by Bruce Pilato.Recorded at the peak of the band's commercial success in 1974, this live set proves that inside the stadium behemoth Bachman-Turner Overdrive had become was a great garage band trying to desperately to get out. Their studio albums may have been slick as any L.A. product of the period, but, as glimpsed here, the band's sloppy but agreeable two guitar attack, and Randy Bachman's endearingly whiney lead vocals, all but scream beer-soaked late night jams at some smoky dive in suburbia.All the hits are here in endearingly ragged versions. The album's highpoint however has to be the intro to the most overtly garage-like song of the set, "Slow Down Boogie," in which while exhorting the audience to raise their hands in the air, make some noise, etc., bassist Fred Turner actually manages to use the word "boogie" seven times. There's also the bonus of a 1998 Bachman interview that provides some droll anecdotes about the genesis of the band.

This is another example of just how great bands can still be even without the same singers or most famous members in the lineup. It's the spirit that remains in full effect here, as well as the finest Guess Who songs in at least six years that places "All This For A Song" near the very top of the band's impressive canon.
