Bachman-Turner Overdrive announce 40th anniversary release of 'Not Fragile'

Bachman-Turner Overdrive will celebrate their upcoming induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with a remastered deluxe editon of their classic 1974 album "Not Fragile."

According to a press release posted Feb. 13 UniversalMusic.ca, the Canuck rock legends will release "Not Fragile The 40th Anniversary Edition" on March 18, two weeks prior to the reunion of BTO's classic lineup at the veteran rockers' Hall of Fame induction during the Juno Awards on March 30 in their hometown of Winnipeg, MB at MTS Centre.

The reissue will be released digitally, on a two CD expanded set and on re-mastered 180 gram vinyl.

Propelled by the strength of their massive single “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet," which hit No. 1 in a dozen countries, including the U.S. and Canada, as well as "Roll on Down the Highway," “Not Fragile” went on to sell over 3.6 million copies worldwide.

“'Not Fragile' was when it all came together for us,” says frontman and ex-Guess Who guitarist Randy Bachman. “We captured the album-oriented rock audience as well as the singles audience with that album. ‘Not Fragile’ made BTO recognized around the world. That was a milestone album and our crowning achievement.”

Did you know? Randy Bachman asserted BTO's music could be "dropped and kicked" without breaking and came up with the title of "Not Fragile" as a tongue-in-cheek poke at Yes' 1972 prog-rock classic "Fragile."
