Best of B.T.O. (So Far) (1976, Mercury Records) is a compilation album by Bachman–Turner Overdrive that contains material from their 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 B.T.O. (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.
