Description

Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of the second album by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Bachman-Turner Overdrive II, complete with obi.

About this copy: This copy of Bachman-Turner Overdrive II is an original Japanese pressing, complete with the original obi.  As far as we know, this album was never reissued in Japan; the first issues are the only issues.

The cover is VG+, with wear at the edges and some foxing on the cover, though most of that discoloration is blocked by the obi.

The record is M- and appears to have had very little play.  Lyric insert is missing.

A nice copy of a terrific album and the best-sounding copy of this album that we’ve ever heard.

Background: The second album by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the cleverly-named Bachman-Turner Overdrive II, was the one that finally gave the band some success.  The first single, “Let It Ride,” reached #23 on the American charts and the follow-up single, “Takin’ Care of Business” reached #12.  The album itself reached #4 on the American album charts.

The band didn’t sell very well in Japan, however, and Japanese pressings of early BTO albums are somewhat scarce.
