BACHMAN & TURNER “Live At The Roseland Ballroom, NYC” – Classic Rock Never Sounded So Good!
BACHMAN & TURNER – Live At The Roseland Ballroom, NYC was released on May 29th, 2012, via Eagle Rock Entertainment. Randy Bachman and C.F. Turner never sounded better and that’s my sincere opinion after listening to this double live CD. Each time I crank up these live Bachman & Turner songs, it makes me wish I was actually there that night this concert was recorded! As The Cars famously imbedded in my Rock ‘N Roll brain many years ago… Let The Good Times Roll.
Yes, Bachman & Turner are Rock ‘N Roll legends. Yes, they were the heart & soul of Bachman-Turner Overdrive. The real elation factor for me is they both have Rocked my head off in 2012 with a new live album! Classic Rock, Rock and Hard Rock fans should embrace the live performance they hear from Bachman & Turner, with slippery ease. Heavy Metal fans that get into the roots of Heavy Music will undoubtedly give their nod of approval to timeless classics as: Let It Ride, Takin’ Care Of Business, Not Fragile and Stayed Awake All Night. Timeless Hard Rock all, to my ears.
Since I was a young lad, the FM hits of Bachman-Turner Overdrive always reminded me of Summertime. (most of the RUSH catalog reminds me of Winter; only that’s another story). Maybe it’s the feel-good and loose vibes that spring-out from the BTO songs? Regardless of seasonal vibes, Bachman & Turner have recently entertained the livin’ hell out of me with this live concert recording; I don’t foresee my personal Rockin’ jubilation I’m receiving from it subsiding anytime soon.
That’s What It Is, Moonlight Rider, Rollin’ Along and Slave To The Rhythm are songs from the 2010 self-titled Bachman & Turner studio album. I simply cannot get enough of these new Bachman & Turner songs, they all radiate that old-time Rock ‘N Roll feel, while coming across so grand with their lyrical simplicity. I guess that’s why this is called Classic Rock, after all.
American Woman, the co-penned Randy Bachman song and ultra Rock Classic by The Guess Who, is a thrill of an addition to take in from this live set! Just another timeless classic on this double live CD. If I’ve come across as being overly excited about Live At The Roseland Ballroom, NYC, then it’s probably due to these songs taking me on a Rockin’ care-free ride. Who could possibly refuse that nowadays? I’m not refusing it, that’s for damn certain. It’s all about the magic of Classic Rock… care-free vibrations while you Roll On Down The Highway. Metal be thy name.
