2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Randy Bachman has said they have a few projects in the works, including the release of a film made about the band in 1976 – featuring some never-before-seen footage.
Randy said, "They spent weeks with me in my house with my children and then with Fred Turner, my brother Robbie [Bachman] and Blair Thornton. They went on the road and filmed us with Thin Lizzy and Bob Seger and all the other opening acts that we had. So now we got it all and it's being restored. I'm remixing Live at Japan. We found 18 tracks that no one's ever heard, live at the Budokan."
Bachman added that Eddie Kramer, who is known for his work with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, may mix the project with him. There are also remastered vinyl versions of the band’s first few albums in the works as well.
Bachman said fans can expect the release of these items in 2024 and 2025, including the documentary from last year about his lost-then-found 1957 Gretsch guitar which was stolen from a Toronto hotel in 1976.
