Avenue Records will reissue The World Is A Ghetto by War on December 11.

AND a nice piece of noise for you:  A 40th Anniversary Edition of the 1973 self-titled debut from Bachman Turner Overdrive is scheduled for November 6.  BTO was one of my favorite albums, more than their other releases despite having fewer hits.  But with songs like “Gimme Your Money Please”, the rousing “Stayed Awake All Night”, “Little Gandy Dancer”, “Hold Back The Water””, and the equally excellent “Thank You For The Feelin'”, along with the unnamed tracks from this album, help make this classic deserving of a 40th Anniversary Edition.

Did I make up for my week-long absence?

  1. Rush 2112 on BD!!! The holy grail. (Well that and Hemispheres).

    And yes, that does make up for your absence. I was beginning to wonder.

    1. House sale, moving, settling into 625 sq ft of exciting apartment living, and all that fun. Might be a few more nights here and there while I set up something more comfortable to write easier.

      1. I figured that the inactivity might be the result of your move (plus our “friend” The Hacker).

        I don’t know where you got this Rush 2112 info but you must have scooped everyone because I can’t find any information on it and what little info there is recognizes your post as the source. Good job!!!!!

        1. 100% move-related. Oddly though, he did strike in my off time. Easy fix nowadays.

          The Rush piece was delivered by very good source. On occasion, things do change but usually due to timeframe. I’m betting on this being right.

          1. I am too.
            When 2112 was passed over in favor of Fly By Night in last year’s Sector box sets, I was hoping it meant that something more elaborate would be done for 2112. I also thought that it should be this year, 2012, because none of us will be around in 2112.
            Just in time for Christmas!!!! Coincidence?

  2. BTO as a 49th edition? SWEET! I saw them on that “tour” in The Brewery, a GREAT rock and roll bar in East Lanisng, Michigan in the early 70’s. Sat my beer(s) next to the stage monitors- my hearing hasn’t been the same since…

    “Thank you for the feeling…”

    1. David, deceptive as this is, it’s only a best of. I know, I know, I have just found this out. But I agree with you that such an edition would be sweet!!
