Not Fragile / Four Wheel Drive
Bachman–Turner Overdrive are a Canadian rock group from Canada, that had a series of hit albums and singles in the 1970s, selling over 7 million albums in that decade alone. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six Top 40 singles. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, Many of their songs, including ‘Let It Ride’, ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’, ‘Takin' Care of Business’, ‘Hey You’ and ‘Roll On Down the Highway’ still receive play on FM classic rock stations.

Not Fragile is the bands third album and was released in 1974. The title is thought to be a response to Yes' Fragile. The style has been described as a cross between Mountain and early ZZ Top. The arrival of Blair Thornton (replacing Tim Bachman) gave the band a true second lead guitar to pair with Randy Bachman, and dual-guitar solos are prominent features. It proved to be the group's most popular album, and is the only BTO album to have reached #1 on the US Pop Album charts. ‘Roll On Down The Highway’ and ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’ were hit singles.

Perfect Timing
After making his debut at a mere 17 years of age on the Scorpions first album in 1972, mad axe-man and guitar maestro Michael Schenker spent five years as lead guitarist with Brit rockers UFO, before forming the Michael Schenker Group (MSG for short) with singer Gary Barden in 1979. After four studio albums and two live records, released on Chrysalis between 1980 and 1984, Michael returned in 1987 for the "Perfect Timing” album, but now fronted by former Grand Prix and Far Corporation singer Robin McAuley, with a change of name to the McAuley Schenker Group, but still conveniently shortened to MSG.
The new look MSG recorded a total of four albums, starting withthe melodic "Perfect Timing” (1987), "Save Yourself” (1989), "M.S.G.” (1992) and finally with "Unplugged – Live” (1992).
"Perfect Timing” from 1987 features three singles; ‘Love Is Not A Game’, ‘Follow The Night’ and the US Hot 100 Hit ‘Gimme Your Love’. The set features an expanded 16 page booklet with period memorabilia and rare photos, plus a new essay from Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on brand new interviews with Michael Schenker and Robin McAuley, conducted in 2012 especially for this release.

M.S.G
A 17 year old Michael Schenker made his first recording appearance as lead guitarist with the Scorpions on their 1972 debut before recording five studio albums plus a double live LP with UFO for Chrysalis Records. After leaving UFO, he formed the Michael Schenker Group (MSG for short) with singer Gary Barden in 1979, releasing four studio albums and two live records between 1980 and 1984. Michael returned in 1987 with the "Perfect Timing” album fronted by former Grand Prix singer Robin McAuley, and a change of name to the McAuley Schenker Group (but still "MSG” for short). The new look MSG recorded a total of four albums, starting with the melodic "Perfect Timing” (1987), "Save Yourself” (1989), "M.S.G.” (1992) and finally with "Unplugged – Live” (1992).
1992’s "M.S.G.” is certainly a harder, grittier affair than the previous McAuley Schenker releases, and includes the single, ‘Never Ending Nightmare’.
The set features an expanded 16 page booklet with period memorabilia and rare photos, plus a new essay from Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on brand new interviews with Michael Schenker and Robin McAuley, conducted in 2012 especially for this release.

Unplugged - Live
After making his debut at a mere 17 years on the Scorpions first LP in 1972, guitar wunderkind and mad axe-man Michael Schenker spent five years as lead guitarist with Brit hard rockers UFO, before forming the Michael Schenker Group (MSG for short) with singer Gary Barden in 1979. With four studio albums and two live records under his belt, released between 1980 and 1984, he returned in 1987 for the "Perfect Timing” album, now with former Grand Prix singer Robin McAuley, with a change of name to the McAuley Schenker Group, but still conveniently shortened to MSG.
This new look MSG recorded a total of four albums, the last of which was "Unplugged Live” (1992). As well as key McAuley Schenker songs, recorded live in Los Angeles in 1992, the album features three UFO classics; ‘Natural Thing’, ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Lights Out’. The bonus tracks are unique acoustic studio versions of ‘Anytime’, ‘We Believe In Love’, ‘What Happens To Me’ and ‘Bad Boys’, all taken from the "unplugged in the studio” Japanese only mini-album "Nightmare: The Acoustic MSG”.
The set features a 16 page booklet with a new essay from Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Michael Schenker and Robin McAuley, conducted especially for this release.
