‘Take Off’ by Bob and Doug Mckenzie – Classic Hit or Miss

The song “Take Off” (identified on the album as “the hit single section”), featured guest vocalist Geddy Lee of Rush. It was indeed a hit, peaking at number 16 on the Billboard 100 singles chart in March 1982 and proved to be a bigger hit single than anything Lee ever recorded with Rush.

At least one million copies of the album were sold within North America, 350,000 of these within Canada alone which earned a triple-platinum certification from the Canadian Recording Industry Association.The Great White North entered the RPM Canadian album charts at #3 on 12 December 1981and rose to the #1 position the following week where it remained until 23 January 1982.  The Great White North peaked at number 8 on the American Billboard 200 album chart in 1982.
