Bachman + Turner Announce New Double Live Album
Two years after former Bachman-Turner Overdrive bandmates Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunited for the sensibly titled ‘Bachman & Turner’ album, the duo is celebrating its renewed partnership with a new double live album, titled ‘Live at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC.’
As you’ve no doubt already figured out, the set was recorded at New York’s Roseland Ballroom, where Bachman & Turner’s tour rolled through in November 2010. The 20-song set draws from across their career, making room for classic BTO and Guess Who hits as well as cuts from ‘Bachman & Turner.’ The duo was joined by C.F. Turner (bass, vocals); Marc LaFrance (drums, percussion, vocals); Brent Howard Knudsen (guitars, vocals); and Mick Dalla-Vee (guitars, vocals).
Bachman talked about the genesis of the project during an interview with Gibson, revealing that his plans were originally to record a solo album featuring special guests — but after he heard Turner’s vocals on the song ‘Rock and Roll Is the Only Way Out,’ things changed.
“He sent me the track back and I went, ‘Unbelievable. Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it,’” recalled Bachman. “Me and him together, there’s this magic, like a Jagger and Richards kind of thing.” ‘Live at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC’ is scheduled for a May 29 release. Take a look at the complete track listing below.
