Despite a previous Top 40 hit These Eyes from Wheat-field Soul, success was evasive south of the Canadian border for The Guess Who. American Woman ignited U.S. interest in the then 7-year old rock band from Winnipeg. The certified Gold Record contains three Top 40 singles (No Time, No Sugar Tonight and the ubiquitous title track). It successfully bridged the gap between 60s poprock and 70s stadium rock.
The Guess Whos next album Share the Land contained the hit title track, a rallying cry against corporate greed and warmongering, though in a less affronting manner than American Woman. The band officially broke up in 1975, but continues in various guises today.
Cisco continues its mission to bring great records to the public with breath-taking improvements in sound. Where original LPs (and CD reissues) of American Woman are thin, grainy and lacking in bottom-end. Kevin Gray and Robert Mr. Record Pincus have brought out of the original master tapes wide dynamics, rich bass extension and a clarity that will blow your mind. Now you can have the classic songs and amazing musicianship of The Guess Who wrapped in sound worthy of their work. So pick up a copy today, put it on your turntable and crank it up! Your neighbors may not be happy, but we guarantee you will be.
