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.
"BTO are best known for their rock anthem You Ain’t Seen
Nothing Yet, but its nine-song parent album, Not Fragile, has many other highlights.” – Tim Jones, Record
