GREAT SAMPLING
11/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know how the previous reviewers can morally justify their slamming of this legendary pop gem....but I suppose they have thier twisted ethics all worked out. although not a staggering masterpiece, this chronicle does indeed highlight am/fm 70's rock icon. few are the bands that stretched thier modest talent like BTO. I think it is a "must" for collectors and rock afficiandos."

"Lookin' out for no. 1
Roll on down the highway
Hey you
Freeways
Takin' care of business
Down down
You Ain't seen nothing yet
Let it ride
Flat broke love
Can we all come together
Rock and roll nights
Jamaica"
Just play "Taking Care of Business!"

"Just play "Takin' Care of Business!"

That scene with Canadian rockers Bachman-Turner Overdrive in the Simpsons cracks me up every time I think about it. Homer probably would have enjoyed a bare bones hits collection like BTO's Greatest. It gets right to the point, collecting both of BTO's big hits ("You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" and of course "Takin' Care of Business") as well as ten other songs that were moderately successful at the time but don't get played every day on classic rock radio. They're all pretty much about driving and/or rocking, and you really can't go wrong with that.

There are better BTO collections out there (Goldis particularly good), but if you're looking for a decent, dirt-cheap introduction to the band, BTO's Greatest ought to do just fine. The sound quality is pretty lousy, but this disc was released back in 1986, so that's to be expected. Just turn up the volume and "get to the `workin' overtime part!""
