The Guess Who are one of
the few legendary classic rock bands that have stood the test of time for many
decades. Their music penned mostly by founders Randy Bachman and Burton
Cummings are compositions that are played all over, every hour, every day, thanks
to the undying love and support of their fans worldwide.
After a string of non-stop
hit singles and chart albums, The Guess Who nally achieved their biggest album
yet with the mega classic American Woman. This amazing album captured the music
industry by storm and featured several smash #1 singles and solid album tracks,
keeping this album in the top of the album charts for over a year.
Side One features the
classic title # 1 rocker American Woman. For a song originally intended as a
jam in the studio, the quartet of Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Jim Kale and
Gary Peterson soon put the world on its ear with this brash and bold
commentary. Quickly rising to the top of the music charts, this tune would set
the album up for its success which would go on now for over forty years.
Their next super smash No
Time would again make the band more music history as it landed in the top ten
and showed the guitar technique of Randy Bachman which would serve as a
precursor to the heavy metal sound he would later achieve with Bachman Turner
Overdrive. The brilliant vocals of Burton Cummings and the three part harmony
from the rest of the band made this musical manna in the summer of 1969.
Radio would serve them
another number one as programmers soon found the B-Side of the American Woman
45 equally appealing as No Sugar Tonight would become another signi cant
chapter in this Canadian supergroup’s history.
More heavy hitters like
When Friends Fall Out and Proper Stranger, the progressive ballad Talisman and
the powerful blues shuf e of 969 (The Oldest Man) truly made the American Woman
album one of the most important albums of the seventies and has continued to
earn accolades into the new millennium with praise from new artists who have
gone on to cover a number of tunes from this watershed release.
