     BTO signed to Mercury Records in 1973 and released a self-titled first album which made a minor impact in the USA and at home in Canada. Tim Bachman departed at that point, replaced by Blair Thornton. After constant touring in the USA, BTO's second album, Bachman-Turner Overdrive II, provided their breakthrough, reaching number 4 in the USA and yielding the number 12 hit "Takin' Care Of Business".

Lyrics to Takin' Care Of Business:

They get up every morning from the alarm clock's warning, take the 8:15 into the city.
There's a whistle up above and people pushing, people shoving, and the girls who try to look pretty.
And if your train’s on time you can get to work by nine, and start your slaving job to get your pay.
If you ever get annoyed, look at me I'm self-employed, I love to work at nothing all day.
 
And I'll be takin' care of business everyday.
Takin' care business everyway.
I'll be takin' care of business. It's all mine!
Takin' care of business and workin' overtime. Work out.
 
It's as easy as fishing, you can be a musician, if you could make sounds sort of mellow.
Get a second hand guitar, chances are you'll go far, if you get in with the right bunch of fellows.
People see you having fun, just a lyin' in the sun, tell them that you like it this way.
It's the work that we avoid. Hey, we're all self employed. We love to work at nothing all day.
 
And I'll be takin' care of business everyday.
Takin' care business everyway.
I'll be takin' care of business. It's all mine!
Takin' care of business and workin' overtime, work out.
