Editorial Reviews

No one had to guess who the Guess Who was after they released this 1970 juggernaut: a #9 LP with the Top 5 smashes American Woman and No Time . Along for the ride on this reissue are some never-before-seen photos, new notes by Burton Cummings and the unreleased bonus cut Got to Find Another Way !

Customer Reviews

Definitely a very good album; almost every song is good, and some are very good!

If you want to see what the real Guess Who is like and go past just the hits, this is an excellent album to try.
BENJAMIN MILER
This is one of the great rock classic albums and one of the best Guess Who albums.

This 30th anniversary reissue of The Guess Who's classic AMERICAN WOMAN album is handled with great care and respect, making the old appear and sound brand new.
A CD reissue of this Guess Who album wouldn't have occurred if they hadn't received a resurgence in popularity. This was due in part to last year's successful cover of the title track by Lenny Kravitz, and the group's mini-reunion at the 1999 Pan-American Games in Winnipeg. (These two events prompted the band to stage a hugely successful cross-Canada tour, where they did a commanding 12-minute performance of "American Woman" that made the crowds get out of their seats and party!)
The new and much-improved reissue of AMERICAN WOMAN doesn't suffer from sloppy engineering or muddy sound, unlike the 1988 CD release. The progressive chord changes, Randy Bachman's snarling guitar, and Burton Cummings' distinctive set of pipes are heard upfront, making it all sound as if it were recorded just yesterday. Thankfully, none of the tracks are subject to annoying edits this time around. One example is "8:15," which has the first five seconds that were cut from the initial CD release.
To top it all off, this AMERICAN WOMAN CD has the original cover art and photos, along with new liner notes, lyrics, an excellent bonus track ("Got to Find Another Way"), and useful track-by-track commentary written by Cummings. All these elements make for a truly magical listening experience for Guess Who fans young and old.

I just got this beautifully remastered Cd version on Buddha. They did great job. The sound is amazing and the bonus track (which is different from the verison on Burton Cummings' "My Own Way To Rock" album) is pure Guess Who greatness. It's a never before heard version, which is why I got it in the first place. The whole CD is amazing. Great liner notes by Cummings and a lot of bonus photos from his personal collection. Beautifully redesigned--beautifully I stress. The guy who did it must have done it for the fans. It looks much better than my original LP. Much better! They didn't miss anything on here. Good job Buddha. This is better than any RCA compilation or re-release I own.

The title track from this album remains one of the great rock songs of all time. It is rather amazing how it continues to pop up in movies and commercials as well as getting air play. The Lenny Kravitz cover and the song's prominence in "Austin Powers, The Spy Who Shagged Me" are simply testaments to the enduring strength of this song. "American Woman" was the #1 single when I was living in Japan and I remember how they would play "American Woman" and then do the flip side, "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature." The other big hit from this album is "No Time," but the forgotten gem is "Talisman," which is more of a progressive rock song featuring acoustic guitar and piano. "When Friends Fall Out" and "Proper Stranger" are more traditional rock songs. Even if you have the Guess Who's Greatest Hits CD, these other songs make this a worthwhile addition to your collection.

It's too bad that too many people simply regard The Guess Who as a singles-oriented band geared for AM radio airplay. Certainly for a band like Three Dog Night, that was true, but the Guess Who were obviously wanting FM credibility, and they succeeded quite well with this, their third album for RCA. I really think some of their albums are really grossly overlooked, most people would pick up a Greatest Hits package over an album like Wheatfield Soul, Canned Wheat, or this one, American Woman.

American Woman marked the final Guess Who album with Randy Bachman, since he converted to the LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) faith, yet his religious conversion didn't stop him from continuing on with music, as he earned quite a lot of success with Bachman-Turner Overdrive. You can see why Bachman left The Guess Who as BTO's music tended to be straight-ahead hard rock with a blue-collar mentality.

The title track was a huge hit, and it demonstrated the Guess Who now had a hard-edge approach. The music was basically the band's rant about American culture and attitudes influencing Canadian culture and attitude and how they didn't appreciate that. The song is full of great guitar riffs and nice fuzz lead guitars, with aggressive vocals from Burton Cummings. Lenny Kravitz did a cover of that song in 1998, and I heard his version, which, in my opinion, is vastly inferior to the original. For some odd reason, the Guess Who re-recorded Canned Wheat's "No Time and included it on this album. This is the familiar hit version with the lyrics found at the end of the original trimmed out. "New Mother Nature/No Sugar Tonight" was yet another hit on this album, which features some great vocal arrangements and nice use of acoustic guitar and electric piano.

This was the first Guess Who album I bought ( I remember balking over the 'outrageous' $3.99 I shelled out for the vinyl! ). I was subsequently horrified that this one didn't have "Share The Land" or "Hand Me Down World" on it (!)...just a bunch of "filler" material. Well, almost four decades have passed, and that "filler" material, much of which comprised what was originally side two of the LP, has mellowed like the finest wine! "American Woman" may not have as many designated hits as "Share The Land", but this is prime vintage Guess Who, folks. "Talisman" is simply gorgeous...it evokes the mood of sitting indoors on a rainy day. "When Friends Fall Out" should have been a hit! Ditto "Perfect Stranger". It's such a shame that a great many people will never hear the obscure gems on this album, simply because they were never given the official sanction of being on a Greatest Hits Album. For me, this one has always complemented "Share The Land": between these two albums, you've got most of the radio hits, as well as some killer "off the wall" material.
