The Guess Who guitarist and Bachman-Turner Overdrive member, Randy Bachman, has released a live CD/DVD recording featuring many hits from both bands performed at the intimate Winnipeg venue, Pantages Playhouse Theatre. Whether you were raised on this music, like I was, or you were a fan back in the 70s and 80s, you will most likely be impressed with this release.
Having such hits as “These Eyes”, “Laughing”, “No Sugar Tonight”, and of course, “Takin’ Care Of Business”, the live recording is sure to bring back many memories of seeing either band play live. It’s extremely hard to pick one favourite off of this album because I love so many of these songs, as well as many of the bands’ other songs. If I absolutely had to pick, it would be, “American Woman”, “Undun”, and “Lookin’ Out For 1”. I’ve heard all of these songs countless times throughout my life, and even if I don’t actively listen to them anymore, I can still remember a majority of the lyrics.
This album makes me think of when I was a kid, listening to these bands with my family. It is an amazing quality and Randy Bachman definitely still has his talent. If you were or are a fan of The Guess Who or Bachman-Turner Overdrive, you will not be disappointed when you listen to this.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
