Bachman-Turner Overdrive's thumping, guitar-driven anthems epitomize 1970s arena-rock, and few were the FM-radio fans who grew up in that decade (or the '80s for that matter) without hearing "Takin' Care of Business" and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" at least a thousand times. Mercury's two-disc GOLD collection brings together the best of the band's output between 1973 and 1979. Arranged chronologically, GOLD provides a career overview of the hard-rocking Vancouver quartet, including both well-known singles and highlights from the studio albums. Well packaged and annotated, GOLD is the definitive BTO set and the perfect introduction to this classic-rock standby.
