If you’re like me, you like a lot of 70’s and 60’s rock, but don’t necessarily want to have to own every obscure little album in order to get the hits you want. I scored this little disc on a bargain rack, and even if it’s a short play, it’s got the basics. Most kids these days wouldn’t know the difference between The Guess WHo and The Who, and this is one way to fix it. Really, people might be surprised to learn which hits were The Guess Who’s. “American Woman” being perhaps the most recognizeable. But there are others: “No Sugar Tonight” and “These Eyes”. The track “Share The Land” is sure a favorite of the hippy left, now making a comeback in these war-like times. I myself could have done without that snoozer, but not ever compilation is perfect.
Import compilation featuring 20 hot-blooded hits from this English/American rock band led by guitarist Mick Jones and vocalist Lou Gramm. Apart from 19 tasty bestselling cuts, this CD includes a previously unreleased exclusive track, ’Urgent’ (Live At The BBC). This fabulous disc gathers together their biggest singles released between 1977 and 1992, including ’Hot Blooded’, ’I Want To Know What Love Is’, ’Say You Will’, ’Cold As Ice’, ’Double Vision’, ’That Was Yesterday’, ’Urgent’, ’Jukebox Hero’ and more. WEA.

According to Wikipedia, the Guess Who had 12 top 40 hits in the US and many more in Canada, and numerous great album tracks. They weren’t the Beatles or anything, but they have a solid catalog of really good music. This CD has eight songs, not all of them even among their hits. You can do better than this with one of the MANY other greatest hits sets, for only a couple more bucks.
this CD album replaced a vinyl one that was in my collection that is so good, i just couldn’t live without it
No classic rock collection is complete without this CD. Guess Who are one of the greatest classic rock bands of all time; their songs are original, timeless and fun.
These Eyes is a good, but very brief look at eight of The Guess Who’s hits. For the price this is a good introduction to the Guess Who, but many fans will want more than a mere eight songs buy the Guess Who. Still These Eyes is a good, but rather incomplete collection of the Guess Who’s hits.
5 stars for the music
3 stars for the value of package/lack of songs
