Background
Earlier in 2010, we took a look at the promo CD 'Forged In Rock', released as a giveaway with Classic Rock magazine. The big kahuna CD was official released in September 2010, and though it's taken a while for us to get to it, the CD is surely worth a look. Bundled under the banner of 'classic Canadian rock', Bachman Turner are one of many rock dinosaurs who are alive and well north of the border, and whether anyone will care to admit, these guys maybe long in the tooth but they still have a bite worth considering.


The Songs
Some of the tracks from 'Forged In Rock' appear here again. 'Rollin' Along' which is the bands first single and iTune download - leads off the album. As mentioned in our review of 'Forged In Rock', this one is typical B&T, real Canadian wood-chopping hard rock. 'That's What It Is' in amongst the bluster of raucous guitars and slightly overblown vocals includes a funky jazz like chorus which is very likeable. 'Moonlight Rider' keeps to a milder form of rocking blues which has the term 'classic' hanging off every six-string vibration. I much prefer it when BT churn out the big guns and riffs, as in 'Find Some Love', which was featured on 'Forged In Rock'. So too 'Slave To The Rhythm', which I previously described as a muscular workout with a hint of tough boogie. 'Waiting Game' is a restrained affair with vocals in the Robbie Robertson zone. 'I've Seen The Light' is a rough-house number, with guitar lines sounding similar to playing number eight wire with a chainsaw! With a title like 'Can't Go Back To Memphis' you can guess where this track is headed, the vocals have a bit of distortion added to them, plus the whole thing is as fiery as hell. 'Rock N Roll Is The Only Way Out' could be '..Memphis' part two, seguing from one to the other. Returning to the traditional Canadian classic rock sound of yore, 'Neutral Zone' is a dense gritty workout, just right for the blokes dressed in swandri's and flannel shirts working out in the forests of the great white north. Adding an urban vibe is 'Traffic Jam' with a Dire Straits like tone, completing the picture is 'Repo Man' a crunching blues rocker with a hint of humour and mirth.


In Summary
Despite being tossed legal precedings in the wake of their name and past association with similarly named entities, the duo and their band were allowed to tour under the handle Bachman & Turner, considering those are their real surnames. As a result, B&T ventured over to Europe for a few gigs including a visit to the 2010 Sweden Rock Festival, plus they have appeared at a few select gigs in the USA, at home in Canada, and over to the UK. I suspect this might be the start of something more regular from the B&T gang, so no doubt future material should be forthcoming.
