Bay City Rollers, released in late 1975, was the first full-length album by Scotland's Bay City Rollers to be issued in the USA and Canada. The compilation, which hit #1 in the RPM Canadian album chart on February 7, 1976[2] and reached as high as #20 on the US album chart, included the US and Canadian #1 hit single "Saturday Night".[3]

The LP contained tracks culled mostly from the band's first three UK-only albums: 5 songs from Rollin', 4 songs from Once Upon a Star and 1 song from Wouldn't You Like It - along with 1 brand new song. In addition, this album contains the US mix of "Summerlove Sensation" (a much fuller mix with strings), which finally became available on CD on the US release "Definitive Collection".
