Background
2010 has seen the return of Canadian stalwarts Randy Bachman and C.F (Fred) Turner. In the era of big rigs and rollin' wheels, Bachman Turner Overdrive were arguably the greatest rock export out of Winnipeg, and over the years the band have come and gone from the classic rock circuit. However, the main duo seem to be on a path of longevity and perhaps consistency, and hopefully this signals regular output from them in the near future. As a prelude to their Sept 2010 full length CD 'Bachman Turner' (which we'll review very shortly), the duo released a promotional EP called 'Forged In Fire', which was bundled with Classic Rock magazine earlier in the year (issue 148). There are eight tracks here, four old, four new - forthcoming on the new CD.


The Songs
The familiar riffs and style of old BTO return to the memory banks as 'Rollin' Along' shifts through the gears up to full speed. Wood blocks, big drums and rough vocals and a truckers vernacular of highway phrases should give all the four-wheel warriors something to cheer about. The classic 70's hit 'Let It Ride' is next, though is not as rough/ready as the original, but still good to hear in it's modern skin. 'Slave To The Rhythm' is a muscular workout with a hint of tough boogie in between. 'Find Some Love' Has this big brash sound going on, if you can imagine some of Billy Squier's early work mixed with classic BTO then you've got it in one. The blue collar anthem 'Takin' Care of Business' sounds great and modernised, but still reminds of you of life back in the 70's when this was a big hit. 'Moonlight Rider' has a different feel alotgether, blues flavour, with a Dire Straits tinge, with its Knopfler guitar lines. 'Rock In My Life' returns to that tough vintage riffage, I can see the beer spillage from here.. lol! The last track on this teaser EP is another BTO chestnut 'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet', though this version is very different to the original, taking on a modern pop/rock stance, the grungy like riffs are distorted like anything.


In Summary
A good promo which announced the band/duo upon its return. There was also a raft of publicity for BT during mid 2010, judging by all the interviews and media spots, which means their PR machine was doing a good job. Look also for the full CD review here at GDM.
