If you lived within five hundred miles of Chicago, Detroit, or Toronto between 1968 and 1972, seemingly there wasn’t a day when the Winnepeg band The Guess Who didn’t have a hit song on the radio:“These Eyes”,”Laughing”,”Undun”,”No Time”,”No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature”,”American Woman”, all written by terrific singer/pianist Burton Cummings and guitarist Randy Bachman. Even after Bachman left, the hits continued for the Guess Who with “Hand Me Down World” and “Share the Land”. Both Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman tell the real story here.
And a postscript to what we believed to be the entirety of the recorded Guess Who projects: a four-channel Quadrophonic surround mix of the Best of the Guess Who has been released! Now as you can surmise, not every one of their earliest hits benefits from the long-ago SQ/QS attempts intended for four-channel records forty years ago, but the title song to American Woman, “No Time”, “No Sugar Tonight” and “Share the Land” in quad certainly were worth the wait!- Redbeard
