use of split-screen, which al­lows for a lot of nostal­gic and rel­e­vant pic­tures from the past. The sto­ries he tells are re­ally en­ter­tain­ing, and any­one who’s ever been in a band will con­nect. Randy formed a new band, Brave Belt but with his two broth­ers and Fred Turner on bass they be­came Bach­man Turner Over­drive and a whole lot heav­ier. This is a very en­joy­able DVD and it comes with a bonus CD of just the songs. He’s a great char­ac­ter with a good band be­hind him – well worth check­ing out. Taken from his Vinyl Tap Tour, this is Randy Bach­man in an in­ti­mate the­atre en­vi­ron­ment, play­ing and chat­ting about his mu­si­cal life. Randy likens Win­nipeg to Liver­pool in his early days, with lots of gigs and a drink­ing age of 21. Highly in­flu­enced by Bri­tish mu­sic, his band played ma­te­rial by Cliff and The Shad­ows, and their first sin­gle was a cover of Johnny Kidd’s Shakin’ All Over. As they didn’t have a name, the record com­pany put it out as Guess Who and it stuck. Jam­ming at a gig, Randy came up with the riff that be­came Amer­i­can Woman and a num­ber one all over the world. Randy has an easy way that makes you want to watch and lis­ten, and the DVD makes great
