Editorial Reviews

The 1972 release of this live LP, recorded over two nights in Seattle, broke the Top 40; this reissue tops it by adding six unissued performances from those shows! Powerhouse versions of American Woman; Albert Flasher , and Runnin' Back to Saskatoon are still here, but so are live performances of their hits No Time; These Eyes; Share the Land; Rain Dance , and more!

Customer Reviews

It is a Live, Original Recording with Extra Tracks!!
nancvee
The band's performance throughout is top notch - especially that of Burton Cummings.
Joe Miller
This has to rank as one of the best live albums ever.

Hot on the heels of their recent Canadian tour, The Guess Who just released an expanded version of Live at the Paramount. The new disc features new liner notes and photos, plus six bonus tracks, for a total of 75 minutes of great music. Originally recorded over two nights at the Seattle venue, this album dispelled any previous notions that they were `just a pop band.' Paramount showed in no uncertain terms that The Guess Who could rock with the best of them. One listen to the 17-minute rendition of "American Woman," "Pain Train" or "No Time" makes that point perfectly clear. The album has stood up to the test of time, and remains one of the most popular in the band's catalog.
For the new CD, the producers went back to the original 16-track master tapes from the first show (the second night was deemed "a waste of tape") and remastered the whole shebang. The songs were restored to their original order in the set, and the sound quality couldn't be better. Most of the stage banter between songs has been restored as well. The Paramount shows were two of the first to feature new guitarist, Don McDougall, and he fit in perfectly. His vocals and guitar work added a lot to the group, and he brought in additional songwriting abilities to boot.
Starting with an blistering version of "Pain Train," the album gets off to a rocking start as soon as you hit the play button. The song's a showcase for Kurt Winter's searing guitar licks, and he really lets loose. The band played three new songs during the show, the first of which was "Runnin' Back to Saskatoon." Critics considered the song a bold move at the time, because the chorus reads like a lesson in Canadian cities.

What else can I say,This is a great live Guess Who album made even better by six bonus tracks nearly doubling it in length!!! The original album only had 7 tracks but this great reissue expands the total to 13 cuts for a more complete Guess Who live experience,add to that the awesome remastering and cool liner notes and you have one great package,and besides that it's cheap too(I mean the price tag,not the content,I picked this up brand new for less than five bucks!)This is one time that bonus cuts actually make the album better(The Elton John "Here and There" 2 disc set is another great example!),theres no filler here,just great Guess Who in concert!!! The Guess Who "Live At The Paramount" rocks!!! Two thumbs up! Way up! A+

WOW! Finally someone at RCA/BMG has gotten off their duff and begun a serious attempt at remastering and re-archiving the Guess Who's back catalog of gems (through the Buddha label)! This concert was recorded in late May of 1972 at Seattle's Paramount Theater and consists of Burton Cummings (vocals, piano, flute and harmonica), Jim Kale (bass and vocals), Kurt "The Walrus" Winter (guitars), Gary "Humpty" Peterson (drums) and newcomer Donnie "Dooner" McDougall (accoustic and electric guitar and vocals). This tour was in support of the LP Rockin' (of which, intriguingly, there isn't a single track of on this album). Greg Leskiw had just quit the band and had been replaced literally overnight by Donnie (also a Winnipeggan, who was gifted with an incredibly beautiful voice). The band was originally going to record live at Carnegie Hall a few nights hence, but Burton lost his voice and the date was cancelled on short notice. The recording date was rescheduled for the Paramount, giving Donnie some time to better gel with the tight rock'n'roll ship of the Guess Who. The band plays with energetic - albeit a bit stoned - rock'n'roll drive, showcasing the Guess Who in their native element - prairie-stomping and rocking out in concert. I was ecstatic when RCA/BMG first re-issued the LP on CD, but that remastering was little more than a direct analog-to-digital transfer. This newly remastered project by Buddha Records, complete with six additional songs from that original concert set has been meticulously and lovingly crafted. The sound is so much brighter and defined, and, audio snob that I am, I notice several almost - ALMOST - inaudible drop-outs have been corrected (bonus points to the remastering engineer!).Read more ›

The original Live At The Paramount has always been a sentimental favourite of mine, but this re-release with extra tracks is truly an outstanding album. It's sentimental to me, because Running Back to Saskatoon blew me away back in 1972 and made me a young Guess Who fan immediately. Another reviewer here said it best, Pain Train just explodes right off the bat. It fits much better at the beginning of the concert, where it actually occurred. The Guess Who really hit a peak at this time I think, the Kurt Winter era is much underpraised, with all due respect to Randy Bachman. Burton Cummings is in superb voice and is brilliant on "Saskatoon" especially.
Imagine my reaction during the 2000 Running Back Through Canada tour stop in Toronto when the Guess Who launched into the Paramount version of American Woman (whatchoo gonna do baby, now that the Roast Beef's gone?) Brilliant! It's long and ragged at times, but I love that long version of American Woman on this album. New Mother Nature is missing its twin No Sugar Tonight (a shot at Bachman no doubt, who wrote the latter) but it rolls along nicely on its own in a mid-tempo groove. Additional added numbers like "Sour Suite" and "Hand Me Down World" work beautifully, and the sound seems a lot sharper. Outstanding live album. For similar albums from the era try Guess Who #10 (hard to find outside Canada) and Rockin' (ditto).
