Less than two weeks ago, Universal Music Canada announced that it would be releasing a remastered 40th-anniversary edition of Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s best-selling album, Not Fragile, on March 18.
That was great news for anyone who was a teenager back in ’74, when BTO was battling it out with the likes of Thin Lizzy, Foghat, and Blue Oyster Cult for time on the turntables of rock-crazed kids worldwide.
Now comes word that Bachman Turner—the band led by former BTO guitarist-vocalist Randy Bachman and bassist-vocalist Fred Turner, who aren’t allowed to use “Overdrive” for legal reasons—will play Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on May 30.
That’s doubly rockin’, especially since, according to the all-knowing Wikipedia: “Randy has stated that they are considering playing the Not Fragile album end-to-end at several of their live shows during their 2014 tour. He said it is something a lot of their fans have been asking for, and the time feels right.”
So we might get to hear “Second Hand” after all. I can’t wait to watch Bachman talk about it. Woo!
