  • When one mentions the best rock singers of all time, how come Burton Cummings’ name doesn’t come up? All the evidence exists on this disc that he was one hell of a singer, delivering some of the greatest vocals to some of the greatest songs ever. Perhaps because The Guess Who was seen as a Top 40 group has kept him from his due? Let’s start with one of the top three songs ever put to tape, “These Eyes.” This masterpiece has all the ingredients of a timeless song – moving bass line, masterful strings, catchy rhythm, and the pained vocal stylings of Burton. Elsewhere, he shines on “Undun,” “No Time,” and elevates the standard “American Woman” to legendary, something that Lenny Kravitz had no chance of doing. Kudos to the compilers of this for going with the full length version of “American Woman” – the intro is absolutely essential to its impact. I don’t forsee The Guess Who ever making it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but let’s at least recognize one of the greatest voices in rock and letting these timeless tunes wash over us in AM ecstasy!!
