Best of BTO (So Far) (1976, Mercury Records) is a compilation album that contains material released on Bachman–Turner Overdrive's first five studio albums. "Gimme Your Money Please," a cut from the band's 1973 debut album, was released as a single in 1976 to support this greatest hits package.

A remastered version was released in 1998, titled Best of BTO (Remastered Hits), which added the tracks "Four Wheel Drive", "Free Wheelin'", and "Down to the Line". The European issue added another six tracks. All songs were also full-length album versions, though in the U.S. the single edit of "Let It Ride" was used.
