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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guess Who's best album sounds better than ever July 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMERICAN WOMAN--STAY WITH ME! AMAZING CD September 24, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original "American Woman" as Great as Ever December 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Guess Who August 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's about time they do it right August 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As a Guess Who fan from way back, it's hard to contain the excitement generated from the band recently. They just wrapped up a highly successful tour of their native Canada, and as anyone who saw any of the shows will tell you, they're sounding better than ever. A lot of the credit for getting the band back into the public eye has to go to Lenny Kravitz. Even though he destroyed "American Woman" on the recent Austin Powers soundtrack, the track went to the top of the charts, exposing the song to a whole new generation. The band is enjoying a new popularity, which in turn prompted Buddha to begin reissuing the band's back catalog.
This was one of the band's biggest selling albums, containing three major hits: the title track, "No Time" and "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature." The album was previously available on CD, but like the other domestic releases from the band, the sound was awful. Thankfully, the folks at Buddha took the time to do the job right, adding new liner notes, photos, and a bonus track ("Got to Find Another Way"--which previously appeared on Burton Cummings' 2nd solo album). Combine all this, and you can't go wrong. All reissues should be as good as this one.
