CD (September 26, 2000)
Original Release Date September 26, 2000
The Millennium Collection: The Best of Bachman-Turner Overdrive gathers 12 of the group's anthemic hits, including the staples "Let It Ride," "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," and "Takin' Care of Business." "Blue Collar," "Shotgun Rider," and "Lookin' Out for #1" are some of the other highlights of this adequate collection; though it doesn't offer any surprises, it does bring most of BTO's career highlights. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide

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.
