Brave Belt - Brave Belt I
Brave Belt was a Canadian rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba originally consisting of Randy Bachman (guitar/vocals), his former The Guess Who bandmate, Chad Allan (lead vocals/keyboards), and Randy's brother Robbie (drums). Randy also provided bass tracks for the recording of the band's first album, Brave Belt I. But C.F. "Fred" Turner was added shortly after as bassist for the supporting concerts.The band made the Canadian Top 40 with the minor hit "Crazy Arms, Crazy Eyes," which peaked at #35 in November 1971. However, they missed the U.S. charts completely.

Brave Belt - 1971 - Brave Belt II
When Chad Allan left the band in 1971, Turner became the lead vocalist for the Brave Belt II album. During the supporting concerts for Brave Belt II, Tim Bachman was added as a second guitarist. After this lineup (C.F. Turner with Randy, Tim and Robbie Bachman) had shopped around the demo that was supposed to be a Brave Belt III album, new management convinced them to change their name. They eventually settled on Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
