Bachman Turner Overdrive – Bachman Turner Overdrive II Japan LP with obi


An original Japanese pressing of Bachman Turner Overdrive II by Bachman Turner Overdrive, complete with obi.

This item has been sold.


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.
