Released when Mercury Records was still located in Chicago, IL, back inthe second album from Bachman-Turner Overdrive was the first to break through in a big way. Turner 's best vocals; keeping that gargle-with-Draino diesel sound down to a minimum, the song has two major guitar riffs, one a strum, the other from Led Zeppelin 's "Immigrant Song," an inverted mutation of Randy Bachman 's own "American Woman" riff which also hit in Putting Blown - Bachman-Turner Overdrive - Bachman-Turner Overdrive II minds to it and crafting hooky, radio-friendly music was something Bachman and Turner were quite capable of, but Tim Bachman 's voice and writing on "Blown" and "I Don't Have to Hide" leave much to be desired.
