  • Personally, I wish So Long Banatyne would have been paired with Rockin’, and #10 with either Artificial Paradise or Road Food. Nevertheless, it’s great to see this stuff back in print. I have to address #10 – this LP was in the $1.99 bins about a year after it came out, not due to the failure of the Guess Who, but more likely due to the failure of RCA records. #10 is an excellent album – as the other reviewer said the vocal harmonies shine. Some of the material is country tinged (with pedal steel) such as Lie Down and Take it off my shoulders and some of it is funky/rockin/jazzy such as Musicione and Self-Pity. One of the most amazing songs is Cardboard Empire which I believe was written by Kurt Winter & Billy Wallace. The lyrics are bizarre and the looping guitars are very spacy. I love #10 – it should have been a huge success. So Long Banatyne is another favorite of mine. Pain Train is another Kurt Winter showcase – Sour Suite is a beatiful ballad – introspective almost depressed sounding Cummings. Rain Dance is another reason to buy this collection. I think these are two of the more perfect Guess Who albums, so I heartily recommend this 2-fer.
