Four Wheel Drive (album)
Four Wheel Drive is the fourth album by Canadian rock band Bachman–Turner Overdrive, released in 1975 (see 1975 in music). It peaked at #1 in Canada on the RPM national albums chart on October 4 and again on October 18, 1975 while hitting #5 on the U.S. Pop Albums chart. The most popular single from the album, "Hey You," was written by Randy Bachman. It reached #1 in Canada, holding the top position on the RPM national singles chart for two weeks in June, 1975, and #21 on the U.S. charts. Some reviews stated the song was directed at Bachman's former Guess Who band mate, Burton Cummings.
According to liner notes supplied with the BTO compilation CD The Anthology, Mercury records had wanted a quick follow-up to the highly successful Not Fragile album. Thus, Four-Wheel Drive was recorded in six days, much of it containing material that was left over from the Not Fragile sessions.
This album is currently in print.

“To sum up:
1. The cosmos is a gigantic fly-wheel making 10,000 revolutions a minute.
2. Man is a sick fly taking a dizzy ride on it.
3. Religion is the theory that the wheel was designed and set spinning to give him the ride.”
—H.L. (Henry Lewis)
“The open frontier, the hardships of homesteading from scratch, the wealth of natural resources, the whole vast challenge of a continent waiting to be exploited, combined to produce a prevailing materialism and an American drive bent as much, if not more, on money, property, and power than was true of the Old World from which we had fled.”
—Barbara Tuchman (19121989)
