Recorded live in the mid-1980s.
There's no recording date provided here. Given the presence of Guess Who drummer Gary Petersen (not to mention Randy Bachman's scream of "B.T.O. is back!" during "4 Wheel Drive"), though, it's probably a safe bet that BEST OF LIVE was recorded at a reunion show in the late '80s or early '90s, rather than the band's mid-'70s heyday.
In any case, Bachman-Turner Overdrive's brand of charmingly fatuous blue-collar arena rock has aged surprisingly well, and the performances here betray no sign of fatigue. For good measure, along with expected radio hits such as "Takin' Care of Business," "Let It Ride," and "Gimme Your Money Please," we're also treated to spirited remakes of "American Woman" and "Shakin' All Over," from their Guess Who days.
