    Despite losing immediacy 30 years later (the Guess Who's first collection was in 1971, close to its artistic and commercial peak), RCA / BMG 's Remastered 1999 “Greatest Hits” is the clearest-sounding, generous A-disc set of classic Canadian rock group. Bill Lacey, credited with “Audio Restoration” successfully refreshed and revitalized the group known, various series of 1969-70 hits: the lush ballad “These Eyes”, the jangly “laughing,” ; and 1970, the outstanding two-sided hit “No Time” / “Undun” says lead guitarist Randy Bachman their jazz and heavy rock guitar styles. Then again, there are few songs have aged more poorly than the clumsy protest anthems “Share The Land”, “Hand Me Down World”, and demanding, Psalm quote “Hang On To Your Life.” (Michael Hill's well-researched liner notes, the group desires the FM radio cache “This message brought songs.) Most attention was given to songwriters / leaders Bachman and Burton Cummings, the plays until Remastering Garry Patterson's surprise guarantee drums on “No Sugar Tonight / New Mother Nature” and the Guess Who's signatures are taken, the # 1 “American Woman”. (This CD offers the rarely heard acoustic intro is missing in the Best-of 1971). The CD's second half for the period from 1971 Bachman the exit to the original Guess Who's 1975 resolution. Their studio output was less interesting and successful, but also highlights 1973 the bright “star baby”, the bouncy “Albert Flasher,” the moving pro-ecology “Guns, Guns, Guns,” and the end of 1974 the carefree 50s Rock Tribute “Clap For The Wolfman.” But you also have the deservedly obscure “Broken Heart Boppers” and their sorry attempt reggae group wrote, “Follow your daughter home.” Longtime fans of the two-CD anthology “Track Record” , or the group of CD reissues on the Buddha label RCA. But these Guess Who “Greatest Hits” offers sound, and enough of them to reach a final value for casual listeners and all enjoy the end of the 60s classic rock oldies.

    For many years, the Guess Who were represented by a series of incomplete anthology albums. “The Best Of The Guess Who”, for example, had all of the great Randy Bachman-era tracks, but not later classics like “Star Baby” and “Clap for the Wolfman”. Then there was “The Greatest of the Guess Who”, among other things, the latter two but inexplicably dropped “No Sugar Tonight / New Mother Nature”. Now all those great songs are finally in one place. The Guess Who achieved a kind of hard-rock artistry while Bachman and tenure and amount of campiness successful later in their careers. The two styles are very different, and the highlights of each are all here. Any fan of classic rock should own this album.

    Never Tire of These Songs
    I will never tire of listening to the hits from the Guess Who. I can still remember my older brother cracking the cellophone on our first album and the hiss of the needle hitting…

    Nice package, great song list, but …
    One of my favorite bands from my youth. Cummings had one of the best voices of the era.
    But…

    If you look at the best rock singers of all time, how come Burton Cummings' name does not come? All evidence on this CD that he was one hell of a singer, the provision of some of the greatest singers with some of the greatest songs of all time. Perhaps because the Guess Who was a Top 40 group has grown from its due? Let's start with one of the first three songs for the band, “These Eyes.” This masterpiece has all the ingredients for a timeless songs – the moving bass, strings masterfully, catchy rhythm and tormented vocals stylings of Burton. Elsewhere, he seems to “Undun”, “No Time”, and raises the standard “American Woman” to legendary, something that Lenny Kravitz had no chance to do so. Kudos to the compiler that this is dealing with the full length version of “American Woman” – the intro is absolutely necessary in order to assess their impact. I do not forsee The Guess Who at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but we recognize at least one of the greatest voices in rock and letting these timeless melodies wash over us on ecstasy!

    The Guess Who, I guess
    This album enlightened me as to the magnitude of success that the Guess Who enjoyed. I only knew them for ‘American Woman’ and ‘Those Eyes’ before I bought this cd.

    Great first half
    The first 8 songs are fantastic, number 9 is OK, then it’s way downhill fast. I don’t think I’d heard most of these last songs before, and now I know why.

    Stop looking – this is the only G.W. CD you need to buy
    A nicely produced CD with all the G.W. songs you would ever want to hear and re-hear. Stop looking – this is the only G.W. CD you need to buy. Then, you’re done. Move on.
