Bachman–Turner Overdrive II is the second album by Canadian rock band Bachman–Turner Overdrive, released in 1973. The album features the well-known single "Takin' Care of Business. Though it never cracked the Top 10 on the . singles charts (reaching in 1974), it became one of the band's most enduring hits and stayed on the Billboard chart for 20 weeks. The album also produced another hit single, "Let It Ride", which peaked at on the Billboard Hot 100 chart

The irony is that Bachman-Turner Overdrive was conceived due to another, equally bitter feud. Einarson: Randy’s sole motivation in turning BTO into a success was to prove to Guess Who singer Burton Cummings that he was wrong when he publicly declared Randy would never make it in the music business. Burton had to eat those words. Not Fragile rocketed to the top of the US album chart, eclipsing to N. 8 position achieved by ‘Bachman-Turner Overdrive II’ and the first album’s N. 8. All three albums had been recorded and released in one hectic 18- month period, which was testimony to Randy’s unrelenting work ethic. Bachman-Turner Overdrive failed to work that same alchemy, and the imbalance of creative input and financial reward turned internal dissension into a fatal malaise.

Bachman–Turner Overdrive, often abbreviated as BTO, is a Canadian rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba, that had a series of hit albums and singles in the 1970s, selling over 7 million albums in that decade alone. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six US Top 40 singles (eleven in Canada). Thornton joined the group in January 1974 during the supporting tour for the Bachman-Turner Overdrive II album, replacing Tim Bachman shortly after that album was released. Thornton made his live debut with BTO at a televised event for Don Kirshner's In Concert program hosted by Don E. Branker.
