"Didn't get a liner with the CD, but I didn't pay $327.63 either (that IS just a bad joke, right?? I almost listed mine for $327.62). Seems to be a later release for BTO, or what was left of them. Not bad for a swan song if that's what it was. Certainly not as good or bombastic as BTO (I) or Not Fragile - but what is?
The album is just over 37 minutes long with one of the best songs, Rock n' Roll Nights, taking up over 5 1/2 minutes of that. Maybe at 18 I would have fell in love with it; a good album to play with a summer girlfriend on a lake somewhere. Then again, so would a Journey album... and who has time for that? Thankfully I don't.
My advice - stop looking for this one. Contact me if you are about to reach for that fat checkbook - I'm not out to gouge anyone. Instead revive your love for those 30 year old songs with one of the Live albums. Although critics dis them unmercifully, they contain some great concert jams. BTO put on one of the most fun kickbutt shows! Feel lucky if you got to attend one - it set a standard that many other concerts failed to live up to.
To relive those concerts, get HITS YOU REMEMBER LIVE, or the BEST OF...LIVE. Even a couple cuts on ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS LIVE will blow your socks off - crank Mississippi Queen / Sledgehammer to get those 70's ya-ya's off. Your 12" subwoofer won't know what hit it. Coldplay who? Please!! Put it in Overdrive and Roll On Down the Highway. again."
Hold on tight...

"Positively a great experience... with Randy gone it two a second Post-Randy album for Mr Turner to admit that Jim Clench, formerly of April Wine should handle the lion's share of the vocals.... I no longer have the album, and I'm sure not gonna pay $327 for a CD... but I'm on the prowl for this album... can still remember every song, and can't believe I let it out of my grasp..."
