Bachman Turner Overdrive NOT FRAGILE. When looking at the classic rock 1974 photos of these guys on the cover art, I believe they are working it hard and loving their rock lives. It’s a rethrift for me but a good try by these Winnipeg, Canadian born fellas. If I had any tolerance for rock, I’d be swooned by their feathered long hair, sometimes mullets, tight bell bottom jeans and even tighter athletic t-shirts. When I lived off the grid, on Haida Gwaii, I used to listen to the CBC radio all the time (with an inverter and boat battery). I always wondered who this Randy Bachman guy was that ran a rock show over dinner time. I know now. The album may be a rethift but it goes into the TOP 20 album cover art category. If you could feel this album you’d know t was three dimensional. The photography is really classic rock greatness and I also appreciate the double wide inside layout of a live concert. I give props where they are due. lol.
The album ~ is their 3rd in 1974 and went platiinum.
